Diagnostics and Specialized Treatments
At some Foot & Ankle Specialists of South Jersey locations, we offer the convenience of in-house treatment including:
• Non-Invasive Vascular Testing - A painless study which helps our medical center to identify Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). PAD is one of the leading causes of death and is known as a "silent killer." Identifying this disease early can help us to save limbs and save lives.
• CarePICS - A photographic mobile and web application to help treat patients with vascular issues and wounds.
We have also had the pleasure and success of introducing to our office locations:
ORTHOBIOLOGIC REGENERATIVE THERAPIES - The newest effective non-surgical procedures with the potential to promote tissue healing, help restore or establish normal function and improve overall quality of life.
Bone Marrow Aspirate Therapy (BMAC)- BMAC is a therapy derived from a patient's own bone marrow, which is then injected into damaged areas to stimulate healing and repair. In the human body, bone marrow is where blood is generated. Bone marrow aspiration is a procedure which involves taking a sample of the liquid part of the soft tissue from inside an individual's bones or bone marrow. This treatment reduces inflammation and helps restore normal function in joints and tendons; typically used for arthritis of the hip, knee, elbow and ankle.
Adipose-Derived Stem Cells - This is a regenerative injection treatment that stimulates repair of osteoarthritic cartilage and bone using liposuction aspirates (fat stem cells), derived from a patient's own fat tissue. The fat cells are extracted from the abdomen or flank area, and this tissue is processed to obtain the true stem cells. These stem cells are ultimately injected into the site of injury or pain, and the process stimulates healing and regeneration of injured tissue.
Diabetic Foot Care
Due to the possibility of foot problems associated with Diabetes, oftentimes caused by damaged nerves and reduced blood flow, proper foot care is crucial. For this reason, we provide the following services to our patients.
• Diabetic Evaluation - Specific to patients with Diabetes
• Patient education and information sources
• Routine nail care and foot inspections
• Therapeutic shoes and custom orthotics
• Wound care
• Surgical care, if needed
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.
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.
We offer medical pedicures to enhance your foot health! Services are performed by a Certified Medical Nail Technician, Leza A. Davis, trained in proper foot and nail care. Safe and hygienic care is guaranteed as the instruments are medically sterilized and files, buffers and gloves are discarded after each use. While medical pedicures can be enjoyed by all, they are especially recommended for people with Diabetes. All polishes are free of formaldehyde, camphor, toluene, and DBP.

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.
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 Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital 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!
