The podiatrists at Hattiesburg Clinic are pleased to provide specialized foot and ankle care to patients in Mississippi.

Podiatry Overview

Hattiesburg Clinic provides medical and surgical treatment for conditions that affect the feet. Feet are complex structures with many bones, tendons and ligaments that have to work together perfectly to keep you moving. Improper foot care can affect your overall health and cause additional ailments. Proper treatment of foot conditions can eliminate your pain and give you happier, healthier feet.

Hattiesburg Clinic’s board-certified podiatrists offer therapies for conditions such as toe pain, ingrown and fungal toenails, hammertoes, corns, calluses, warts, heel/arch pain, childhood deformities, sprains, injuries, bunions, diabetic feet and more. Additionally, we offer ClearSense™ laser treatment for the clearing of onchomycozis (fungus), as well as laser removal of warts.

Our foot and ankle specialists also provide other podiatrist services, including:

  • Biomechanical correction
  • Neuroma injections
  • Nail care
  • Plantar wart removal
  • Radiographic examination
  • Orthotics
  • Therapeutic injections
  • Onsite X-ray

Conditions We Treat

Our podiatrists are board-certified foot specialists and treat patients of all ages experiencing the following conditions:

  • Ingrown Toenail – Ingrown toenails are a common condition typically occurring when the nails are improperly trimmed or when a person wears poorly fitting shoes. The edge of the nail cuts into the skin causing redness, swelling, pain, drainage, infection and difficulty walking.
  • Plantar Fasciitis – If you notice pain or discomfort at the bottom of your heel, especially with your first step in the morning, you might have plantar fasciitis (fash-ee-EYE-tis). It is caused by the shortening of a band in the bottom of your foot.
  • Fungal Nails – Nails can become infected by fungal organisms when there is prior injury to the nail or in the dark, moist and warm environment of shoes. Fungal nails may be discolored (yellowish-brown or opaque), thick, brittle and separated from the nail bed. Known as onychomycosis, this can cause discomfort, pain and possibly disfigurement in the feet.
  • Heel Pain – Pain on the heel is a common foot and ankle problem. Conditions like plantar fasciitis, bone spurs and Achilles tendonitis cause discomfort on the back or underside of the heel and make walking uncomfortable.
  • Foot Pain – Foot pain can have causes ranging from poorly fitting shoes and prolonged periods on your feet to issues related to underlying health concerns. If you are experiencing pain that involves any of the bones, ligaments or tendons of the feet, make an appointment to speak with us today.
  • Neuropathy: Diabetic Foot Care – If you have diabetes or blood vessel disease, it is important to take care of your feet and talk to your doctor about any foot problems you are having. Diabetes can often result in nerve damage in the feet, also called neuropathy. This nerve damage can feel like pain in your feet as well as tingling, burning, numbness or an inability to feel hot and cold in the toes. These conditions could lead to diabetic foot ulcers if not attended to by your podiatrist.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a podiatrist?

A podiatrist, or doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM), is a physician and surgeon who treats diseases and issues of the foot and lower legs. Podiatrists complete rigorous training to understand the make-up of the foot and ankle and how they work. This makes them uniquely qualified to care for this part of the body.

When should I see a foot specialist near me?

If you experience any of these issues, it may be time to schedule a visit with a podiatrist:

  • Toe pain
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Regular swelling or numbness in your feet
  • Pain when you walk or put pressure on your feet
  • Thick corns or callouses that do not go away
  • Cracked or bleeding heels

Some of these conditions could be signs of a larger issue. If you are suffering from any of these problems, talk with your primary care doctor about seeing a podiatrist near you.
