Our Foot and Ankle Services

 Do you offer non-surgical treatment options for conditions?
 While our team specializes in the latest surgical and reconstructive treatment options, we always begin with the least invasive treatment for our patients. Our doctors only turn to surgical treatment options after considering all possible conservative approaches. If none are a viable treatment option for your condition, our doctors will then choose a surgical route to ensure a successful treatment and recovery. 
At EVFAS, our patients are fully involved in each step of the treatment process. You can expect our doctors to go over every potential treatment option to help you choose which route is best for your unique condition. Explore our services to find your foot and ankle condition, and learn more about treatment options available.
 Does EVFAS offer pediatric podiatry services?
Yes! It’s not uncommon for children to face foot and ankle injuries, and our team is experienced in treating foot and ankle damage to ensure the area heals correctly as your child grows. Our podiatrists will help your child get back to their sport or active lifestyle as soon as possible while ensuring a safe, long-lasting recovery. Give us a call at one of our clinic locations to discuss foot and ankle care for your child with our team.
 How do I know when I need to see a podiatrist?
We often hear from patients who have tried to just live with their foot and ankle pain before finally seeing a podiatrist. If you’ve experienced a foot or ankle injury or have persistent pain, we encourage you to reach out to a podiatrist as soon as possible. Depending on your foot or ankle condition, avoiding professional treatment could actually lead to more complications or chronic conditions. It’s always best to play it safe and consult a podiatrist as soon as pain arises.
