Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Scheinost "Medical care for many foot and ankle conditions are often as simple as an orthotic or a brace. However, more involved complicated cases sometimes require foot or ankle surgery to correct the underlying problem or deformity. Dr. Scheinost has been in practice in Puyallup for 18 years specializing in complicated foot and ankle reconstructive and revisional surgery.  His practice philosophy has always been to treat conditions conservatively without surgery at first, unless the condition will only be resolved with surgery."
