Dr. Kibler's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kibler "As a recognized leader in foot and ankle healthcare in the eastern Carolinas, Dr. Kibler has experience in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery through the renowned University of Pennsylvania Health System in Philadelphia. Dr. Kibler meets all problems of the feet and ankles with a high degree of skill coupled with years of surgical experience and leading-edge technology. His focus on long-term results has earned the trust of thousands of patients and their doctors. In 2006, Dr. Kibler saw the need for complete diabetic foot care for local residents so he established THE DIABETIC FOOT CENTER. Dr. Kibler's efforts have helped save countless patients from foot or leg amputation by managing diabetic patients with periodic foot care and disease prevention all the way through wound healing and limb reconstruction when limb threatening complications arise. In 2011, Dr. Kibler brought GenesisPlus by Cutera to Brunswick County. Genesis Plus is a laser treatment for toenail fungus. With as little as two treatments, in combination of the use of topical fungus care products, patients are able to see results with clearer nails. Digital x-rays and diagnostic ultrasound imaging are used in the office to help detect conditions around the foot and ankle so that appropriate treatment can be started right away."
