Dr. Nemitz's bio

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nemitz "We believe in early treatment with nonsurgical, conservative therapies. Acute pain tends to indicate a fracture and requires immediate medical care. Chronic pain requires an investigation into the cause, and should be addressed as early as possible to avoid complications. Pain and swelling should resolve within a week of a sprain or strain.

Our foot and ankle specialists utilize combination therapies including medical, physical and rehabilitation strategies, as well as wellness-based approaches for physical activity and self-management. We treat the bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, nerves and skin of the foot and ankle. Reconstructive ankle surgery or replacement, fractures, sports injuries and trauma are all conditions treated."
