After spending several years in private practice in Chicago, Dr. Caplis is excited to return to Louisiana to help patients with their foot and ankle care. With a board certification from the American Board of Podiatric Medicine, he specializes in routine podiatric medicine, sports medicine, forefoot and rearfoot corrective surgery, diabetic wound care and limb salvage. Dr. Caplis does help his patients with all aspects of their foot and ankle care, which means he takes time to diagnose the condition, ensuring he understands the root of the problem. Once carefully diagnosed, he will help the patient figure out a treatment plan that will focus on their needs, and help them through every step of the recovery process. Call his office at Gulf South Foot & Ankle, LLC for help with your foot and ankle care.

This content was provided by Dr. Caplis "Patients should receive the best care for their feet and ankles. This involves carefully diagnosing the entire condition, especially the root of the problem. Once diagnosed, a plan that utilizes conservative treatments should be used first, followed by more aggressive treatment methods once conservative methods fail. There will be a follow up with the patient to ensure a full recovery is made."
