Our Indianapolis Podiatry Office Makes Foot and Ankle Care a Family Affair

You realize how important proper foot care is for your family, but how are you supposed to juggle so many appointments, all with different podiatrists? You see one podiatrist for your heel pain, while your diabetic parent sees a podiatrist who specializes in diabetic foot care, and your kids see a different podiatrist who focuses on sports-related injuries in growing children.

We have good news: Indiana Podiatry Group is a family-focused business that treats all kinds of feet and patients of any age. Whether you are dealing with ingrown toenails, a sprained ankle, or bunions, we have the right doctor with the right training to get you on the road to recovery.

As your family's feet grow and change, Indiana Podiatry Group will always be here to take care of you. Also, with six offices in and around the Indianapolis area, we are only a short drive from wherever you live in central Indiana. Contact us today to schedule an appointment by calling (317) 773-7787 for our Indianapolis, Noblesville, and Fishers/Saxony offices, or (765) 377-1148 for our Tipton, Connersville, and Richmond offices.

Complete Foot and Ankle Care for the Whole Family

What's the difference between seeking treatment from a podiatrist versus your family doctor versus an orthopedic surgeon? A podiatrist’s training is entirely related to conditions of the foot and ankle. Your family doctor has had very little training dealing specifically with foot & ankle care because they’ve focused instead on general practice. While there are orthopedic surgeons who specialize in foot and ankle care, it will most likely be for surgical purposes.

If you needed glasses, you wouldn't go to your family doctor for glasses, right? That's the same way people should feel about seeing a podiatrist, because we have dedicated our entire careers to the health and wellbeing of the lower extremities.

The podiatrists at Indiana Podiatry Group—Dr. Schulman, Dr. Kilberg, Dr. Viselli, Dr. Fulkert, and Dr. Spyropoulos (also known as “Dr. Bill”)—treat all types of foot and ankle issues, including:

  • Heel Pain. Heel pain is extremely common and it can happen for many different reasons, such as plantar fasciitis, inflammation of the Achilles tendon, flat feet, or high arches.
  • Diabetic Foot Care. If you have diabetes, taking care of your feet is of the utmost importance. One small cut can very quickly turn into a big problem, so if you haven't made an appointment with a podiatrist yet, it's definitely time to do that. The podiatrists at Indiana Podiatry Group create a comprehensive treatment program for persons with diabetes, with a special emphasis on preventive care.
  • Sports-Related Injuries. It is wonderful to lead an active lifestyle, but it is not uncommon for athletes of all ages to seek out a podiatrist with experience in sports medicine. We frequently treat kids and adults with Achilles tendinitis, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, sprained ankles, turf toe, stress fractures, and other injuries.
  • Foot Surgery. Sometimes certain foot conditions may require surgery, including bunions, skin lesions, bone spurs, cysts, fungal nails, and serious fractures. When you meet with your podiatrist, they will be able to let you know if surgery could be necessary.
  • Ingrown Toenails. Ingrown toenails are common but extremely painful. If not treated quickly, ingrown toenails can become infected and may require surgery.
  • Bunions. The development of bunions is usually directly related to genetics, so if someone in your family had bunions that may explain why you do too. Bunions themselves are not hereditary, but the shape of your foot is, and the way you walk and use your feet play a role in whether or not bunions develop.

 

We treat nearly every type of foot or ankle condition, so even if you do not see your specific problem listed above, please call us to schedule an appointment and we will be happy to help you.

Practice Areas

Heel Pain Heel Pain

Heel pain is caused by many different conditions. Whether you suffer from plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, or any other heel pain-causing affliction, find information and treatment options here.

Diabetic Foot Care Diabetic Foot Care

Controlling one's blood sugar is perhaps the most important step in preventing foot problems. When blood sugar is normal, the potential for foot complications is significantly lessened. If kept under control, diabetes may not affect the feet and all of the conditions discussed here can potentially be avoided, ensuring a lifetime of healthy feet.

Sports-Related Injuries Sports-Related Injuries

Ankle sprains are common injuries that are often under treated, as they are sometimes assumed to be more minor than they really are. Common during certain sports that require a lot of lateral movement (like basketball and football), or when walking surface conditions are uneven or slippery, the ankle sprain can be a source of significant disability if improperly treated.

Ingrown Toenails Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown nails are very common, and can develop in anyone at any age. Although the big toe is usually where the symptoms develop, the other toes can sometimes be affected.

Bunions Bunions

Bunions are a complex foot deformity of both bone and soft tissue. It is basically a misalignment of the big toe with the big toe joint.  Joint pain in the great toe can develop over time due to its abnormal position as the cartilage can gradually wear down.

Corns and Calluses Corns and Calluses

Corns and calluses are common foot problems that can often be a source of pain and aggravation, especially when it comes to wearing shoes. Corns and calluses are areas of skin that have become thickened due to pressure.  Unfortunately, this natural defense can be a source of pain and discomfort, and there is always potential for skin to degrade underneath the corn or callus, forming a wound (or ulcer).

Athletes Foot Athletes Foot

Athlete's foot (or tinea pedis) is a skin infection caused by fungus. Fungus is an opportunistic organism that grows best in warm, dark, moist environments.  All it takes is simple contact with the skin to start an infection.  It can be spread amongst family members, and affects all ages and activity levels.
