This content was provided by Dr. Gotkin "Our doctors and staff always consider the individual needs, best interests, comfort and convenience of our patients. Certain elective surgical procedures are not appropriate for all patients. This is predicated upon the patient's life style, vocational commitments, physiological age and health, emotional and financial status. On occasion, Doctors at Treasure Coast Podiatry have performed pro bono surgery for hospitalized members of our community suffering from life or limb threatening pathology subsequent to severe diabetic infection or vascular disease. As a Board Certified Surgeon, my fundamental tenet is based upon the premise that most elective surgery procedures are unnecessary. Many foot deformities and disorders can be managed via conservative stratagems such as change in shoe gear, medications, orthotic devices, and certain lifestyle modifications. With over thirty years of experience, it is my personal credence that surgical options are the treatment of final recourse."
