Eighty percent of Americans will suffer from some form of foot or ankle pain during their lives. This pain can be caused by an injury, ill-fitting shoes, diseases such as arthritis and diabetes, poor circulation, genetic abnormalities or simply wear and tear over time. No matter what the cause, the result can be the same: discomfort and limited mobility.
At the Cooper Bone & Joint Institute, our podiatrists strive to improve the overall health and well-being of patients by focusing on preventing, diagnosing and treating conditions associated with the foot and ankle. Our team consists of physicians and surgeons who practice on the lower extremities, primarily on feet and ankles.
