Foot Care

Gouverneur's Podiatry Department provides the expert medical and surgical services you need to get back on your feet, whether you seek treatment for an injury, common foot problem or require ongoing care related to a chronic illness. We treat patients of all ages and for everything from routine foot care and preventive care to surgical procedures to wound management and trauma care.

Coordinated Care

The foot has often been called a "mirror of the body" because many health problems often show up through foot symptoms. Foot pain is not normal and can sometimes be a sign of a more serious medical problem such as arthritis, diabetes, circulatory problems and various skin conditions. Gouverneur's podiatrists work together with our primary care physicians to coordinate individual care plans for best results. Regular visits to your podiatrist may help you prevent serious conditions and complications from chronic diseases such as diabetes.

Patient-Centered Care

Our podiatrists can order laboratory tests, X-rays, bone density tests and ultrasound tests to assist with a diagnosis of your foot problem. All of these services are performed on site for your convenience and in most cases are done at the time of your appointment. Referrals to physical therapy are provided when needed. Podiatry Department staff members are often able to obtain pre-authorizations from insurance companies as an added service for our patients. Gouverneur is one of the few outpatient facilities to have a fully electronic medical record system. This allows your Podiatrist to access your patient chart, x-rays or labs quickly and easily and to include up-to-the-minute detail about your health history.
