Podiatrists specialize in diagnosing and treating disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower leg. Podiatrists have expertise in orthopedics, radiography, sports medicine, dermatology, and surgery. Some conditions that podiatrists treat are ankle injuries, bunions, calluses, neuromas, running injuries, and toe deformities. They are often the first health professionals to diagnose vascular problems that have previously gone unrecognized. Podiatrists also contribute significantly to the areas of diabetic foot care, arthritic foot care, and wound healing.
Dr. Russo has been at Instep for over 20 years. He is board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgeons and is a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. Dr. Khan brings extensive training in foot and ankle conditions from a respected surgical residency program. This includes wound care and limb salvage, foot and ankle reconstruction, as well as general foot and ankle care.
