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. Freels says...

Although Dr. Nicole Freels has extensive training in both forefoot (bunions, hammertoes, neuromas) elective surgical procedures and rearfoot reconstruction, she has a special interest in exhausting all conservative treatments before considering surgical corrections.

Because many lower extremity problems stem from underlying biomechanical issues, Dr. Freels specializes in treating these issues through detailed biomechanical and gait analysis (when indicated) during your visit in hopes to prevent surgery.

How Is She Different? She takes into account your personal needs, lifestyle, age, occupation and limitations when she designs a comprehensive treatment plan for you.

Dr. Freels has a particular fondness for her patients that have to stand on hard or concrete surfaces all day at work, such as at Toyota, Keeneland, Amazon, Schneider Electric, Tiffany's, Baptist Health, University of Kentucky Hospital, Saint Joseph Hospital, UPS, USPS and FEDex team members. She loves to work with them because she gets to see such a change in their quality of life, both at work and at home.

They often come in frustrated and debilitated; to the point that the normal work routine has become difficult or taxing for them, let alone being able to enjoy their time outside of work with their families.

In fact, because of Dr. Freels extensive work and dedication to the Toyota team at the Georgetown plant, she has become the 'go-to' Podiatrist for their foot health needs.

"It's satisfying to see patients that really follow the treatment plan and then reap the rewards when they make progress. They're so happy to feel normal again at work and in their daily activities. For example, say I have a nurse come in for chronic heel pain and over the course of treatment, she becomes noticeably happier and more vibrant on her follow up visits because she's healing. Now she's going to pay it forward and be more effective at HER position healing others because she's not being held back by the pain anymore. I love that! Let's face it. When your feet hurt, everything suffers."— Nicole Freels
