Foot/Ankle Pain, Procedures, Treatments


The podiatrists on the medical staff at South County Health treat all aspects of the foot and ankle, including wound care, limb salvation, medical and surgical treatments, and biomechanics.

Each of your feet has 33 joints, 26 bones, and more than 100 tendons, muscles and ligaments. Injury to this complex anatomy can lead to many common problems that make the simple task of walking difficult. Southern Rhode Islanders who need top podiatry care to keep active are treated by an expert staff of caring clinicians—close to home.

  • Arthritis
  • Bone spur
  • Broken bones
  • Bunions
  • Bursitis of the heel
  • Calluses and corns
  • Fallen arches
  • Gout
