Podiatrists are medical specialists who help with problems that affect the feet, ankles or lower legs. They can treat injuries as well as complications from ongoing health issues like diabetes and obesity.
Podiatry services help to improve the overall health and well-being of patients by focusing on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of conditions associated with the feet and ankles.
Podiatrists may also diagnose foot problems like skin and nail diseases, irritations and ulcers, and treat conditions like corns, arch problems and heel spurs, shortened tendons.
Whitney Young Health Podiatry Services are available at our Albany Health Center and our Watervliet Health Center.
