Dr. Christian Robertozzi, DPM's Expert Contributions
  • How can I treat swollen ankle?

    The treatment is based on the diagnosis. Is the problem caused by venous insufficiency (bad valves in veins), some type of fracture or sprain, arthritis, lymphedema, etc.? Once I know that, I can provide you with some treatment tips. READ MORE

  • What should I do for ankle pain after running?

    In order to answer that, I would have to know the cause of the ankle pain. Is it a muscle problem, a nerve issue or excessive pronation. READ MORE

  • What can I do for ankle pain?

    There are many things that can cause ankle pain including nerves, tendons, muscles, and bone. Without a diagnosis, no one can tell you how to resolve the pain. READ MORE

  • What anesthesia is used for foot surgery?

    That is a decision that is made together by you, your surgeon and the anesthesiologist based on your preference and overall health. READ MORE

  • Foot pain?

    You need to be more specific exactly where the pain is in your foot before I can begin to address your question. There are dozen of causes of foot pain when one walks. From the picture, your foot looks swollen also around the red ankles. READ MORE

  • Is an ankle brace good for a sprained ankle?

    Yes it provides extra support while the ligament is healing. READ MORE

  • Is local anesthesia used for ankle surgery?

    It depends on what is being done. For removal of a superficial mass it can be done. On the other hand, it would not be the best choice for an ankle replacement. READ MORE

  • Feet swelling?

    Certainly with your past medical history, it would be worth a visit to your primary care. It can be a heart or kidney problem. If you stand all day, the valves in your veins may not be working. There are tests your primary care can order to find the cause of the swelling. Without those results, you can't effectively treat it. READ MORE

  • Broken toe?

    You should see a podiatrist and have it x-rayed to confirm if there is a broken toe or if it's just a bruise. Once you have the diagnosis, then a treatment plan can be put in place as the treatment for each is different. READ MORE

  • Planters wart?

    There are literally over 100 ways to treat warts including many over the counter remedies. That tells you that it is a difficult thing to treat and frustrating for both the patient and doctor. You can start off with an over the counter treatment. If that is unsuccessful, then contact a local podiatrist. READ MORE

  • Toe infection?

    Without seeing a picture of your toe, it is impossible to tell if it is infected. If you have Raynaud's disease the toe will turn colors also. So, turning colors doesn't mean that it is infected. READ MORE

  • Foot infections?

    Based on the picture, it appears you have warts or in medical terminology plantar verrucae. READ MORE

  • What exercise is good for ankle pain?

    Before you pick an exercise, you need to know the cause of the pain. If the pain is caused by a chipped ankle bone, then exercise wouldn't be in your best interest. READ MORE

  • For a runner, what aftercare do you recommend to ensure feet health?

    There are a few reasons for heel pain. You could have bursitis or Achilles tendinitis. Both would be caused by running. The bursitis could be on the bottom of the heel or in the back by the Achilles tendon insertion. If the pain is on the bottom, then gel heel insoles will help absorb the shock which is what is causing the pain. If the pain is the back of the heel, then you need different running sneakers that don't rub on the part of your heel. Achilles tendonitis is commonly caused when the tendon is tight and is being worked beyond its limits. Achilles tendon stretching exercise will alleviate the pain in this circumstance. READ MORE

  • Toenail problems?

    From the picture, it appears you have a fungus in that section of the toenail. It weakened the toenail and caused the crack and part of the toenail to come off. READ MORE

  • Toe question?

    You need to get the toe x-rayed to see if it is bone, cartilage or a soft tissue mass. READ MORE

  • Why do I still have pain after ankle surgery?

    I don't know what surgery was performed so I can only talk in general terms. Muscles take time to be rehabilitated and function in their new position if the surgery involved muscle transfers. If bone work was done, bone can take up to a year to completely heal. During that time there may be some soreness. READ MORE

  • Big toes issues?

    There is a procedure called a matricectomy were only the side of the toenail that is causing a problem is removed. By cutting out the matrix or root you could prevent the hangnail and still have most of your normal nail. READ MORE

  • Wrong orthotics?

    If the orthotics were improperly fabricated and caused pain when you were walking, then removing them would alleviate the pain. I am unaware of orthoses causing any kind of permanent damage. They function by preventing excessive motion so muscles don't fatigue and nerves don't get over stretched. READ MORE

  • What medication can I take for ankle pain?

    If you don't have any allergies to them, then an anti-inflammatory medication would be best for alleviating the pain from a sprain by decreasing the inflammation. Aleve, Advil or their generic versions would be a good place to start as far as over-the-counter medication goes. READ MORE
