As we begin a new year, we have lots of exciting news to share with you about what we can offer you here at The Foot & Ankle Center. Here are a few recent highlights.
Dr. Mount and Dr. Pica Have Joined Our Medical Staff
Dr. Alexander Mount has specialties in adult and pediatric reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, and in treating severe deformities of the foot and ankle, including Charcot foot in diabetic patients. Dr. Mount is Board Certified in Foot Surgery by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. He is currently accepting new patients of all ages!
Dr. Robert Pica came on board in December 2017. He has vast experience in all areas of podiatric medicine and surgery, and is double Board Certified in Podiatric Surgery and Wound Management by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and the American Board of Wound Management. Dr. Pica recently moved his practice to Richmond, and he’s now welcoming new patients.
We've Expanded Our Services
Expanded Physical Therapy Services - We’re the only podiatry practice in the area to offer on-site, full-time physical therapy to our patients, and we now have two experienced physical therapists on staff to help you build strength, improve your balance and prevent falls.
Fall Prevention and Balance Program - Developed by our physical therapists and podiatrists, this program is unlike anything else currently offered in Richmond. We start with a comprehensive examination and develop a detailed, customized plan for each patient to help them reduce their risk of falling.
Expanded Orthotics and Shoe Fitting Services - We now have both a certified pedorthist and a certified shoe fitter on staff, who are experts at everything related to shoes, insoles and orthotics. They’re also available to help people with diabetes and others who require specialty shoes, and we have a large selection of stylish, specialty shoes right here in our in-house shoe shop.
We Welcome Your Feedback
