Do you do foot surgery in the office?

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

Our office continues to be open to all new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. If you prefer to wait in your car, just give us a call and we will call or text you when we are ready to bring you straight into a treatment room. Our entire staff is wearing masks and we encourage you to do the same.

For those patients who cannot or still wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

I limit the surgery performed in my Houston podiatry office to ingrown toenail procedures and biopsies of skin lesions. These are simple soft tissue procedures that are comfortably done under local anesthesia.

More complex surgical procedures, such as hammertoe and bunion correction, require more advanced equipment. They are longer procedures so my patients are more comfortable with sedation during the surgery. Finally, any surgery involving bone should be performed in a completely sterile environment. For these reasons, I choose to bring most of my patients requiring surgery to a Houston outpatient surgical center.
