At Apache Foot & Ankle specialists, you will be treated like one of the family. You will receive treatment from only the most well trained and ethical physicians who have your best treatment options in mind. For most pathologies, we will start by treating you conservatively. Surgery will only be considered in the event that you have a structural problem or a traumatic issue that cannot be dealt with in a conservative manner. Fractures and Infectious processes may also require surgery.
Conservatively, you may be treated with orthotics, braces, splinting, athletic wrapping, Physical Therapy, Injections, Oral medications, creams, Diabetic shoes and Diabetic insoles, trimming of toenails and shaving lesions.
