  • Amniotic Membranes and Amniotic Fluid Injections - Use of tissue membranes or fluid taken from the placenta of healthy woman donors after live Caesarian section birth; the amniotic membrane and fluids protect the baby from harm and have natural healing characteristics which we use to accelerate healing in surgery, sports injuries and ulcers of the foot, ankle or leg

• Diabetic Evaluation - Specific to patients with Diabetes

Wound Care

The Foot & Ankle Specialists of South Jersey perform wound care each week, utilizing the least invasive methods necessary.  Our podiatric physicians perform direct, on-site care at The Center for Advanced Wound Healing in our Voorhees, NJ office location.  Our ultimate goal is to provide appropriate care, treat wounds -- especially those that have remained unhealing over a prolonged period of time -- and to prevent very invasive treatment, including surgery, whenever possible.  

Senior Foot Care

Our physicians perform podiatric healthcare for seniors in our offices.  While some of our patients temporarily or permanently reside in senior care facilities, we happily provide care to these individuals through direct, on-site visits at their respective locations.  For specific information regarding this service, please contact our corporate office. 

Work Injuries

The Foot & Ankle Specialists of South Jersey provide expeditious treatment of people who have injured their foot, ankle or lower leg when performing work-related duties.  Our goal is to provide quality care, while returning the injured person to work as safely and quickly as is appropriate.  Appointments can be made for any office by contacting us.  Second opinions and Independent Medical Evaluations (IMEs) are also available upon request.

Custom Orthotics and In-Skate Orthotics

Orthotics, which are also known as shoe inserts, can be pre-made or custom-made.  Prescription orthotics are custom-made and help a person to stand, walk or run better by holding the foot in a corrected position, providing shock absorption and pressure relief, and alleviating painful symptoms specific to the individual.  Our physicians accurately mold casts of an individual's feet in our offices, then send the casts to a lab to finish the process.

We also offer the unique service of fabricating IN-SKATE ORTHOTICS.  This is a specialty service we provide, and the orthotics help a hockey player, figure skater or ice skater to optimize the fit, comfort and performance while wearing the skates.

Braces and Supports

When a person has pain, weakness or has had an injury, there are times when a brace or supportive device is appropriate.  Different types of devices offer varying degrees of support.  Our physicians are experienced in complex foot and ankle diagnoses and accurately match an appropriate device to the severity of the lower extremity problem.  We carry braces and supports on-site at our Voorhees location and can direct where to obtain devices when they are not available.

Nail Restoration

Our office offers a toenail restoration option, which is a cosmetic aid for people with nail conditions caused by fungus, Diabetes or other toenail disorders.  Our podiatric physicians skillfully perform the restoration process to mold and create a flexible, yet durable, artificial nail by building off the existing nail bed.  This option also allows the use of other topical agents to treat fungal infections.

Foot Surgery

If you are coming to our office for a surgical consult or a second opinion, please bring all relevant films (X-Rays, MRIs, CT Scans) and reports to your appointment. 

Our podiatric surgeons utilize an affiliated outpatient facility in Sewell, NJ -- Advanced Surgical Institute.  Otherwise, there are occasions when surgery is performed at Our Lady of Lourdes in Camden, NJ; this is primarily done for patients already in the hospital or for high-risk cases.

There are times when surgery becomes necessary for a number of reasons.  When it comes to the care of your foot, ankle or lower leg, and especially when surgery is indicated, please remember that our priority is YOU and that your concerns will be met!
