The podiatrists at Gabriel J. Halperin, DPM treat foot and ankle problems such as heel pain, diabetic foot care, bunions and shockwave therapy in Los Angeles, CA.


Podiatry Factoid

Records indicate that amputations and other forms of surgery due to infections of the feet, many brought about by diabetes, have been significantly reduced in recent years because of early diagnosis and treatment. Further reduction in this area is a goal of Healthy People 2010, a US Department of Health and Human Services campaign endorsed by podiatric physicians, to encourage understanding and application of preventive medical practices.
Bunion Surgery

Bunions are often painful deformities of the foot that require surgery to correct and alleviate pain.

There are many different types of bunion surgery.

In general, bunion surgery calls for an incision in the top or side of the big toe joint and removal or realignment of soft tissue bone to relieve pain and restore normal alignment to the joint.

The surgeon may insert tiny wires, stitches, or screws to stabilize a severely deformed joint.
