Foot and Ankle Care at Anna Jaques Hospital

Foot and ankle injuries are frustrating because of the limitations they place on everyday life. When you entrust Anna Jaques Hospital with your orthopedic care, we can help you get back on your feet sooner rather than later. Our orthopedic foot specialists offer treatment for fractures, breaks, tears, issues associated with diabetes, and a wide range of other foot and ankle conditions.

From the moment you’re first assessed to the day of your last physical therapy session, you have access to an interdisciplinary team of experts who can answer your questions and help you reach your recovery goals. Whether your objective is reduced pain, improved mobility, increased strength or a combination, we create a customized physical therapy plan to meet your needs based on your medical history and lifestyle.

When you become a candidate for foot or ankle surgery, you want to know that you’re in good hands. Anna Jaques Hospital and our affiliated physicians, in collaboration with New England Baptist Hospital, have developed a specialized care model for orthopedic patients here in our local community.

Podiatry at Anna Jaques Hospital Newburyport

Our feet are some of the hardest working parts of our bodies. Not only do they get us where we need to go, but they also do the important work of bearing our entire body weight. Our feet can also give us clues to our overall health. That’s why it’s important to make sure they’re working at their best.

Fortunately, most foot problems can be improved or resolved, often without surgery. If you’re experiencing foot problems, the podiatrists at Anna Jaques Hospital can help.

What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is a branch of medicine that focuses on the ankles, feet and lower legs. Podiatrists can diagnose, treat and manage conditions that involve these body parts. The podiatrists at Anna Jaques Hospital combine years of experience with the latest advances in medical technology to treat a wide range of injuries and get you back on your feet. They also work closely with our Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center, so your foot problems get specialty care.

When To See a Podiatrist

Some people will put off seeing a doctor about foot or ankle issues because they’re not sure where to go or if the problem is serious enough to warrant a visit. Our experts help relieve your pain or discomfort so you can go back to doing the things you love. If you experience any of the following symptoms, consider seeking podiatric care:

  • If it hurts to stand when you get up in the morning
  • If you have pain in your arches
  • If it hurts to wear your favorite shoes
  • If you feel numbness, burning or sharp pain in your toes
