Foot and Ankle
Take Your Best Step Forward
Think about all that your feet do for you each day. So when your feet aren't feeling well, you aren't either. The foot and ankle specialists at NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital carefully evaluate how you're feeling and moving, and put together a plan of care just for you that helps you take that first step toward recovery. We find that we can treat many people effectively without an operation. Our care features:
Exceptional Experience: Our foot and ankle specialists treat people with all types of disorders and injuries, from the most common and easily treated to the most complex and challenging.
Conservative Care Before Surgery: First, we try nonsurgical treatments to relieve your pain and improve your function. We may prescribe custom shoe inserts (orthotics) to ease your discomfort and provide stability.
Extraordinary Surgical Experience: If you need surgery, you'll benefit from a team with superior experience. Our surgeons regularly treat people with fractures, bunions, arthritis, and other musculoskeletal problems affecting the foot and ankle.
