Welcome to Family Foot Care & Surgery, LLC, here in Milford and Hamden, CT. If you are struggling with foot pain, know that you are not alone. Millions of Americans deal with lower limb discomfort daily. However, we know that isn’t the way it should be. We believe your feet can be pain-free without giving up your favorite activities. That is why Dr. Sanjay Patel and our whole staff are dedicated to helping you maintain your foot health, comfort, and mobility.
We are a practice you can trust and depend on to listen to you and your family’s needs. Our goal isn’t to simply treat your feet and send you on your way—we work with you on this journey. We understand that educated patients take better care of their own health. Let our practice partner with you to help you understand your foot problems and available treatment options, so you can make informed decisions about your own care. We want to help your feet and more importantly help your whole being to allow you and your loved ones to fully enjoy life.
Eliminating Foot Pain
Every strong structure that stands has a solid base that supports everything above it. If the foundation is unstable, the whole structure is weakened. This principle is also true for your body. Your feet are your own “foundation” and they need to be strong and healthy to maintain your mobility and independence. Foot pain is abnormal. It’s your body’s way of signaling your brain that something has changed and damage is taking place in your lower limbs. You don’t have to learn to live with the discomfort—you can treat the problem and eliminate the pain.
As medical techniques and technologies develop and advance, our practice makes an effort to evaluate and invest in the therapies that truly benefit patients. That is why we offer radial shockwave therapy for heel pain and FDA approved laser treatments for fungal nail infections. The extracorporeal shockwave treatments use sound energy pulses to stimulate your body’s natural healing processes, to eliminate issues like chronic heel pain. This noninvasive procedure restores tissues quickly. Laser for fungal nails uses different wavelengths of light to eliminate stubborn infections where topical medications can’t reach. It targets the pathogens directly, without the nasty side effects of oral anti-fungal medicines. We also use ultrasound to diagnose and properly inspect and/or inject suspected problematic painful areas in the foot. Also, we have digital X-rays in both of our offices to quickly take images of your feet for easier diagnosis and treatment planning.
Family is important to us, just as it is important to you. We serve all ages, from the oldest to the youngest family members; however, Dr. Sanjay Patel is particularly concerned with children’s foot care. Kids’ bodies grow and change rapidly. During their formative years, it’s important that their foundation develops correctly, so that they’re able to maintain their mobility and independence into adulthood. No child deserves to struggle when walking or to limp in pain. Let our expert staff care for your children and help you manage your family’s health.
Some conditions seem to be particularly problematic for a large number of people. Dr. Sanjay Patel and our staff have worked to become experts in these areas, so we can offer effective treatments and put our patients’ minds at ease. Heel pain, ingrown nails, and bunions are a few of these areas. They can cause significant discomfort and make it difficult to wear many types of shoes. They don’t, however, have to control your life. Let us use conservative measures to offer you real relief and correct your conditions.
