Some of Our Services

  • Foot and Ankle Surgery

    As expert foot surgeon, we take great pride in our ability to restore proper function to an injured or deformed foot. Surgery is recommended only when it is the very best method to correct your condition.

  • Ingrown Toenails

    Ingrown toenails are caused by the growth of the toenail into the surrounding nail fold. Symptoms include pain and swelling at the site. Chronic, painful ingrown toenails can usually be teated, permanently, with a simple procedure that prevents the regrowth of the ingrown portion of the nail.

  • Sports injuries

    If you are an occasional sports enthusiast or a professional athlete, Dr. DeFranco helps you remain healthy and competitive in your recreational activities. Our special sports medicine care can help you prevent injuries before they occur as well as repair injuries after they happen.

  • Hammertoes

    A hammertoe is a dislocation of the joint of any one of the toes. It is described as a hammertoe because it bends under like a claw, or like the hammer in a piano. A corn or a callus usually will form either on the end of the toe or from shoe pressure on the prominent portion of the toe.

  • Orthotics

    Orthotics are shoe inserts that are custom made to fit each patient’s specific needs and to treat painful conditions such as flat feet, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis and neuromas.
