We Are Here To Help!Dr. Lauren Grossman & Dr. Jill Hagen, PODIATRISTS363 Grand Ave, Englewood, NJ201-568-6977It’s time to talk about ways to prevent foot and ankle running injuries. Here’s how to improve your performance and keep your feet in top condition. The feet and ankles are vulnerable...
I would try injections, orthotics, paddings and if that doesn't work, then surgery can definitely help. READ MORE
Yes, you could have a nerve impingement since there are vessels that run along the inside of the bunion area and just like in the back, it may be compressed and cause pain. A good exam, X-rays, and possible injection, padding custom insert, or surgery will alleviate all pain. Stop walking around in pain. There are so many conservative and surgical options for painful bunions. And if there's a family history, chances are the bunion pain will get worse. Lots of luck. READ MORE
You may need an MRI to evaluate the tendon. There are other conservative treatments besides cortisone (which I don't recommend in the Achilles area because it can weaken the tendon even more). You can try compression over the area, non-cortisone injection, physical therapy, or a custom insert with a possible heel lift. There are lots of options and even non-invasive treatments such as PRP or TENEX. READ MORE
I recommend excision and biopsy of the growth because until a pathologist sees the specimen under the microscope, you can never with 100% certainty r/o a malignancy. READ MORE
Maybe it's a microfracture or an exostosis (extra bone). Could be the bones have subluxed. Please make an appointment to take X-rays and identify the cause of pain. READ MORE
Most likely, you probably have one and there’re ways to make sure it never comes back. Have an X-ray to make sure there is no underlying bone spur. Until your appointment, soak in epsom salt and apply bacitracin. READ MORE
You must check his circulation because, without adequate circulation, no wound will heal even with all the antibiotics. It should be cleaned properly and debrided. Since he was put on antibiotics, I hope a culture was taken. Circulation is most important for proper wound healing. READ MORE
Make an appointment. Most people with flat feet aren’t in the proper running shoes with the right orthotics/inserts. The doc would need to look at your foot and do a proper exam, watch you walk/run, and get you on the right path before any injuries. Having a flat foot predisposes you to a lot of injuries in the foot, ankles, knees, and back. Remember, the foot is connected to the rest of your body and if you have flat feet, it could be putting extra pressure on many other body parts. READ MORE
You should have an X-ray to make sure there is no bony prominence causing the growth, which is usually the case. Make sure to wear wide shoes. READ MORE
You might have injured the nerve, which can take a long time to heal. Make sure there are no remaining shards of glass in the foot. READ MORE
Custom orthotics; padding and strappings; wider shoes. Please make an appointment to evaluate your foot deformities. READ MORE
Yes. Make an appointment for an evaluation and possibly a custom foot orthotic so you are balancing out the pressure when running. With flat feet, the pressure is not divided evenly amongst all the muscles/bones. READ MORE
Once you suffer from an ankle injury, you are very susceptible to having another one and another one, especially if the area wasn’t treated 100%. You may need an MRI and X-rays to see extent damage in the ankle. Laser therapy, injections, bracing, casting, and PRP can all help the ankle. Why are you falling to begin with? That needs to be addressed first. READ MORE
I would make an appointment because there may be other things going on with the ankle. There could be arthritis and bone spurs that were unable to be removed arthroscopicaly or nerve impingement. Maybe you are having pain from a different joint. Without the proper physical exam and imaging modalities it’s hard to say. But you shouldn’t be walking around in pain. There’s always a reason and solution. READ MORE
You need to come in for a consult and let’s see the degree of the hammertoes. Without seeing them it’s hard to give you an exact answer. You want room in the toe box area. And can try pads that are specially made for hammertoes. We have lots of products to prevent the hammertoes from getting worse READ MORE
Make an appointment so we can discuss options. There are many and you shouldn’t have to be in any pain from your nails. The procedures we do are simple and effective and hopefully ingrown toenails won’t be in your vocabulary. READ MORE
Definitely. Make an appointment and we will figure out the reason why these calluses are forming in the first place? Is the pressure not even when you are walking? Maybe a bone is longer than the rest causing increased pressure. Always happy to help and get to the root of the problem. READ MORE
Further imaging may be helpful and a biopsy would definitely tell what the growth is. Don’t wait to seek help. Growths, although not common, can become or are malignant. Cancers are found all over the body, including the feet and ankles. READ MORE
Of course! Conservative treatment is a must, including change of shoe gear, custom molded orthotics, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications including oral and topicals, manipulation, and injections. You don’t have to suffer with pain. READ MORE
Seeing a foot and ankle specialist is the first step to proper diabetic foot care. We examine the foot and ankle for any signs of potential skin breakdown. There are nerve biopsies and specific nerve conduction tests that can look at potential or exsistinf neuropathy (burning and tingling) so many diabetic complications start in your feet. Don’t wait. Schedule an appointment as soon as possible for a diabetic foot check up. READ MORE

Patient Experience with Dr. Grossman
I saw Dr. Grossman for pain in my left foot. I've been to other podiatrists before and the problem came back. Dr. Grossman was attentive, asked a lot of questions, and ran tests to find out what was wrong with my foot. She then provided treatment that day. I didn't feel rushed; Dr. Grossman and her staff worked until my pain was alleviated. Anyone who has a foot problem should see Dr. Grossman. You'll be in the best possible hands.
