Podiatric Foot and Ankle Surgery

Although Dr. Schoene and Dr. Smielewski stress quality conservative care for foot and ankle conditions, they do recommend surgery when it will provide the best resolution for your individual condition. Surgery will correct the abnormal alignment of the toe for bunion deformities or can remove an unknown mole or lesion. Our office staff and doctors will discuss the process in order to schedule surgery. Conservative care will be discussed and attempted, and if surgery is the solution then our office staff will check insurance benefits and help you with all scheduling procedures.
