Foot & Ankle
Due to the volume of use, magnitude of force, and distant proximity from the heart, foot and ankle pain and injuries are notoriously slow to heal and can be completely debilitating for any patient. For this reason, DISC’s team of highly trained specialists use only the most modern techniques to ensure dynamic treatment, structural stability, and maximum mobility so that patients can get back on their feet as quickly as possible.
James Wang, DPM
Foot & Ankle Specialist
Dr. James Wang is among an elite group of board certified podiatrists who have completed a four year residency, focusing on surgical and traumatological conditions of the foot and ankle. Less than one percent of all podiatrists have this type of training. Dr. Wang specializes in deformities and injuries of the foot, ankle and lower leg.
Common surgical treatments of the ankle and foot force patients to be immobilized and non-weight bearing for extended periods of time. Using modern technologies and techniques, painful deformities can be corrected with minimal incisions which facilitate immediate walking and actually allow the body to heal faster. These innovative techniques also result in less pain and swelling during the postoperative period compared to the traditional approach using screws and plates
