Your feet and ankles can take a beating in everyday life. The podiatrists at Astria Sunnyside Hospital can help ensure that your foot and ankle problems get the latest, most effective treatments available, close to home.
From nonsurgical options like custom orthotics to minimally invasive surgical procedures, our foot specialists offer a full range of treatments, all tailored to your individual needs.
Foot and Ankle Problems We Treat
Our podiatrists can provide expert care for a wide variety of disorders that affect the foot muscles, tendons and bones.
Some of the more common services we provide include:
Bunions are unnatural lumps that develop under the big toe. For bunions, we recommend wearing shoes with toe boxes and wider insteps to cushion the affected area. We'll recommend additional treatments, such as physical therapy, medications and bunion surgery as needed.
Diabetes Foot Care
If you have diabetes, our foot specialists can provide the preventive care you need to make sure you avoid complications.
Flatfoot reconstruction surgery can help correct this condition, and our foot surgeons are experts at performing it. But we typically start flatfoot treatment with nonsurgical methods, which may include things like custom shoe inserts, rest and physical therapy.
Hammertoes are characterized by shortened tendons in the toes. Special hammertoe shoes with extra room for the toes are ideal for people with this condition. Additional treatments may include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications and, in some cases, hammertoe revision surgery.
Treatment for Foot, Heel and Ankle Pain
Foot pain can have a wide range of causes, including the conditions listed above and things like fractures, plantar fasciitis, and sprains or strains. Our podiatrists will take the time to fully understand your symptoms so we can make an accurate diagnosis and prescribe a course of treatment that will get rid of pain and restore the full function of your feet.

- Fractures and trauma
