Podiatry


Our podiatry program employs a wide range of the latest therapies to treat conditions related to foot structure and function more effectively, painlessly and efficiently.

Podiatry or podiatric medicine is a branch of medicine devoted to the study, diagnosis, and medical and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower extremity.

We provide the following for our podiatry clients.

  • Prescribe therapies and perform diagnostic procedures such as ultrasound and lab tests.
  • we use a wide range of the latest therapies to treat conditions related to foot structure and function more effectively, painlessly and efficiently.
  • Prescribe or fit patients with inserts called orthotics that correct walking patterns.
  • Diabetic foot care/diabetic shoes.
  • Treatment of conditions like bone disorders, bunions, corns, calluses, cysts, heel spurs, infections, ingrown nails and plantar fasciitis.

As a board certified podiatric physician and surgeon for over 28 years in Houghton, MI, Dr. Reminga believes that patients deserve to have the information needed to make good choices about their foot and ankle care. Our goal is to educate each patient and begin a relevant treatment program with the highest quality of care available. Whatever your foot and ankle trouble, we’ll work together to find the answers that will comfort you and bring you relief.

 

“In podiatric medicine there are many ways to treat common foot and ankle problems. As a board certified podiatric physician and surgeon, I utilize current, state-of-the-art practices and technologies. Most of our methods are non-surgical and minimally invasive.”

“I only recommend surgery when the patient has no other viable treatment options remaining. That’s why those who have diabetes should see me when they are diagnosed. I am dedicated to helping my patients avoid unnecessary procedures such as foot amputations; just as I am dedicated to helping all patients avoid unnecessary surgeries.”
