Our podiatric physicians focus on the lower extremity―everything from the knee down―to make a difference in the lives of their patients.
Some patients come to us because of foot or ankle pain―a nagging problem they just can’t shake. Others visit because they have an ingrown toenail or wounds related to diabetes. No matter what brings you to our Podiatry Program at NCH, you’ll receive care from an expert who understands the importance of healthy feet and legs.
When you visit an NCH podiatrist with foot pain or ankle pain, your doctor has access to all the services of NCH.
