In step with your need or specialized expertise.
Your comfortable recovery and speedy, long-lasting results are Dr. Brown’s and Dr. Saffer's most important concerns. Along with attentive, personalized care, Dr. Brown’s and Dr. Saffer's specialties include:
Sports medicine and treating running injuries
Nobody understands the grit and determination of a competitive athlete better than a fellow athlete. And nobody knows a runner’s preventive and corrective foot-care needs better than Dr. Brown. As a collegiate baseball player, lifelong sports enthusiast and former marathoner, he’s fully attuned to the rigors and challenges of the competitive lifestyle. Dr. Saffer also has a special interest in sports medicine and works with patients that have athletic foot injuries. As an athlete competing in Tae Kwon Do, 5K/10K races, and golf, he is committed to seeing athletes return to their passion for sports. Custom foot inserts, aggressive physical therapy, and proper foot gear are just a few tools used to correct foot pain.
They both strive to keep your feet “race-ready” by educating and protecting you with:
• Personalized injury prevention programs
• Private, pre-competition evaluations
• Custom orthotic shoe inserts
• Aggressive pre- and post-race physical therapy
Treatment for heel pain
Plantar fasciitis or heel spurs can afflict anyone, from the weekend athlete and competitive runner to active kids and busy soccer moms. As a heel-pain specialist,
Dr. Brown and Dr. Saffer offer you a variety of non- and minimally invasive treatment options, all designed to get you comfortably walking again and back to your normal activities.
Treatment for bunions
Women suffer with bunions more frequently than men because of tight, pointed, high-heeled shoes that confine and restrict the foot. Dr. Brown and Dr. Saffer accurately diagnose and treat bunions by recommending steps to slow their progress or to repair the joint. If more conservative measures don’t bring relief, Dr. Brown or Dr. Saffer may suggest surgery.
Treatment for pediatric foot problems
Because kids are naturally active, they’re constantly on their feet. Seeing them hobbled, limping and unable to play is enough to break a parent’s heart. A loving father himself, Dr. Brown has genuine affection for children. They adore kids and know exactly how to put them at ease during exams and treatments.
If your foot problem can be corrected with a conservative, nonsurgical approach, that’s what Dr. Brown and Dr. Saffer will do. But if you require surgery, they will carefully explain all your treatment options. Besides being experts in diagnostics, they are skilled surgeons with a breadth of experience that gives you the utmost confidence in positive results.
Diabetic Foot Care
Dr. Saffer helps manage foot problems that can occur as a result of diabetes. Patients should be evaluated for diabeties-related foot complications every 3-6 months. Dr. Saffer believes that educating patients about diabetic foot care is essential and lectures on the topic frequently.
