Everyone should see a podiatrist for accurate diagnoses and effective treatment for heel pain, bunions, hammertoes, skin growths and all other foot abnormalities. Podiatrists are physicians who specialize in foot and ankle care. Holding the professional title of Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (D.P.M.), a podiatrist is qualified to examine and assess your feet and ankles to determine whether a health issue exists regarding the skin, bones, tendons and muscles associated with this part of the body. A D.P.M. is also qualified to perform surgery on feet and ankles.

Podiatrist Donna J. Hayes at Advanced Care Specialists in Racine, WI provides nonsurgical and minimally invasive foot and ankle treatment at her office, in hospitals and at outpatient surgical centers. One of the most common foot procedures performed by Dr. Hayes is minimally invasive foot surgery to correct a wide variety of painful foot conditions.
