Carolina Foot Clinic
I was referred to Dr. Lanza, Carolina Foot Clinic for several foot problems I was having. After x-raying my feet, Dr. Lanza saw how bad they really were. I had broken toes, degentative arthritis, a hammertoe and numerous other problems with my feet. He prescribed a surgical shoe and set me to the hospital to have a bone scan of my feet. My feet were so bad they ended up doing a complete body bone scan.The bone scan resulted in recommending an MRI. After all the test were done, I had a collasped broken vertibre in my lower back and degentative arthritis in my total spine, shoulders, knees, hips, wrists, legs and both feet. I had 3 breakes in my right foot and ankle. I had back surgery about 4 weeks from when this all started. I now wear a total back brace for the arthritis and a foot brace for my right foot. If Dr. Lanza had not been as quick and professional as he was, I do not know what condition I would be in now. Because he did in excess of his regular job I can get around and funtion to a hlgh level for my age. It is my understanding that you do not get well from this problem, but with the right doctors and sound advice you can have a pretty normal life. I will probably have more fractures and brakes as time goes on but I have an excellent doctor to help me through all of these problems. Thank you Dr. Lanza for being there for me and I will recommend you to anyone I know with foot problems.. Grace Haley-Aspnes

Tips & Advices
Examples of podiatric specialties include orthopedics, primary care, sports medicine, surgery, podopediatrics​, and wound care and management.
Podiatrists can perform surgery on the foot, ankle, and related lower extremity structures. These procedures can range from noninvasive to reconstructive.
Podiatrists can provide stem cell therapy, custom orthotics, foot and ankle surgery, and treatment for toenail fungus, common foot issues, and ingrown nails, among many other services.
Every visit with a podiatrist varies depending on the condition and the amount of discussion and treatment necessary. Initial appointments can last up to 45 minutes, while subsequent routine meetings take at least 30 minutes.
In most cases, foot and ankle services that podiatrists provide are covered by health insurance. Not all podiatrists participate in all health insurance plans, however. Consult your specific coverage to better understand its podiatry offerings.
