The world of medicine has changed dramatically since I first opened Foot First Podiatry Centers in 1985. Change is good. Not only have we moved beyond the traditional way of doing surgery, we are perfecting it. All our surgeries are now minimally invasive, allowing for a quicker recovery.
We are also in the forefront of cost containment. No hospital expense. Our minimally invasive surgeries are performed in our own office based surgical suite. This not only saves our patients thousands of dollars, they are also not exposed to hospital-based infections.
Excellence needs to be certified. Our Podiatric physicians are residency trained, board qualified and board certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery as well as the American Board Of Podiatric Medicine. In order to maintain this advanced status of being certified, our physicians attend several conferences, seminars and classes annually. The physician must also complete periodic testing and surgical review in order to retain their board certification.
Foot First Podiatry Centers, conveniently located across Illinois, utilizes a board certified referral service, guaranteeing our patients the best possible medical care across our 4 Midwest locations. Our physician network includes internists, orthopedists, pediatricians, ophthalmologists, anesthesiologists, and rheumatologists. Your comfort and wellbeing remain our primary concern in our continuing effort to bring the latest innovations in medical practice to you.
