All our professionals at Springfield Podiatry Associates maintain the highest levels of accreditation and pursue ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest trends in podiatry.

Podiatrists have expertise in orthopedics, radiography, sports medicine, dermatology, and surgery. Some of the conditions that podiatrists treat include ankle injuries, bunions, calluses, neuromas, running injuries, and toe deformities.
