      Dr. Buratti is compassionate, professional, and extremely informative on the details of my procedure. Her willingness to explain the process of the procedure, prior to surgery and after, helped to ease my pre-operative "jitters". In addition, her calming and empathetic personality was comforting to my son, Chris. Immediately after the surgery she came to the waiting room to debrief. The procedure was a complete success. I would recommend Dr. Buratti for any Podiatric procedure.

      Dr. Buratti is the BEST! She takes the time to thoroughly evaluate your problems, listens to you and then carefully explains your treatment options. Results count - she was spot on in diagnosing my problems and creating effective remedies. Wow! What a treat. On top of all this, she is friendly, pleasant and truly interested in the welfare of her patients. I would give her ten stars if I could. Andrea Kobliner

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Buratti says...

      As a podiatric physician, board certified in foot surgery,  I specialize in both non-surgical and surgical treatment of a variety of conditions that affect people of all ages.  I believe that patient education is very important, because when the patient understands their problem they will have a more active role in their treatment plan and better recovery.

      Dr. Buratti's Care Philosophy

      Every patient is different and many conditions have more than one treatment option. For this reason, it is important to listen and to evaluate each patient individually, then include the patient when determining which course of treatment is best. Customized treatment plans take into consideration many factors and only after a thorough examination and consultation can a patient be fully informed about his/her condition and treatment options available.

      Dr. Buratti says...

      17 years in private practice, preceded by 10 years of education and training, I have seen almost every condition that can occur in the foot. As a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, I treat not only the foot and ankle, but structures that contribute to the function of the foot and ankle. Podiatric physicians are actually a combination of multiple specialties, focused on the lower extremities. We treat DERMATOLOGIC conditions (skin & nail problems, infections, wounds), NEUROLOGIC conditions (neuropathy, nerve entrapments, neuromas), ORTHOPEDIC conditions (deformities, bunions/hammertoes, trauma) and VASCULAR conditions (edema, arterial and venous diseases, circulation problems).

      In addition, we are experts in BIOMECHANICS and the evaluation and treatment of abnormal form and function.  I treat adults, children, elderly, diabetics, athletes... each with their own unique circumstances which contribute to their problem and to the treatment options available.  I believe in evaluating the patient as a whole, incorporating their unique circumstances (health, age, activity level, job duties, etc) into the diagnosis and into the treatment plan. 

      Patients sometimes ask me why I limited myself to the foot and ankle. But as you can see, there is more complexity and variety in the foot than perhaps any other specialty in the body. I enjoy the challenges that walk (or limp) through the door. Every patient is different and every patient deserves a thorough assessment of their unique problem.

      Dr. Buratti says...

      Conservative treatment is always one option. But when a more definitive or surgical treatment is being considered, patients should feel comfortable knowing they will be offered the most up-to-date treatment options available. This is when the combination of physician experience and utilization of modern techniques is most advantageous.
