Podiatric Medicine and Surgery
The practice of podiatric medicine and surgery involves all aspects of foot and ankle care. This encompasses the treatments of skin conditions of the foot and toenail disorders, traumatic injuries of the foot and ankle, congenital deformities, diabetic complications, and sports related problems.
Our doctors are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of muscle, bones, joints and tendons of the foot and ankle. Our physicians have completed four years of medical training concentrating on the lower extremity and have also completed advanced surgical residency training for those patients requiring surgical correction of their foot and/or ankle problems.
Our physicians continue to stay on top of the latest advances in foot and ankle care. Each year our physicians attend conferences and meetings dealing with advancements and updates in podiatric medicine. This way they are able to provide you with the most modern treatments and latest surgical techniques.
Shoreline Foot and Ankle Associates is the only practice in the Muskegon area to offer three podiatrists board certified in foot surgery by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. All of our physicians are Fellows of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. Dr. Piper is additionally board certified in rearfoot and ankle surgery.
