Podiatry and foot care overview

Podiatrists on the medical staff at a Baylor Scott & White Health diagnose, evaluate and treat many conditions that affect the foot, toes and toenails. They offer a wide range of conservative (non-surgical) options for patients, and when surgery is necessary, our board-certified podiatrists are available to provide those services.

Podiatry works as part of a larger team that coordinates care with other specialties to manage complex conditions, such as diabetes.
