NOTICE 3/16/2020

Dear Patient,

We appreciate the trust you place in us and want to inform you about how we are addressing the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

We are closely monitoring events in our local community and continuously updating our policies and protocols as a result of new information.

Please know that our office is following all recommended guidance from public health authorities, including best practices for hygiene, infection control and medical professional team health. We feel confident in our ability to continue seeing patients and providing care according to the Tradition of Quality Care that you have come to expect and deserve.

Our highest priority is to keep all of our patients and staff as safe as possible.

Therefore, at the recommendation of CDC, we will be asking these questions prior to your appointment:

Have you traveled to a COVID-19 affected geographic area within 14 days of symptom onset? (China, Iran, S. Korea, Europe, cruise ship or any high risk sites in U.S.)

Have you had close contact with a person who traveled to high risk sites or has COVID-19?

Have you been in contact with someone that tested positive for COVID-19?

Do you have fever and respiratory symptoms such as cough or shortness of breath?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, please call the Health Department. Contact our office to reschedule your appointment 618-277-5700. If you are not a patient, but are providing transportation for a patient, and you answered yes to any of the above questions we ask you to follow the same guidelines.


Conditions We Treat

From routine checkups to treatments for surgery, Associated Foot Surgeons is equipped to handle all your podiatric needs.

Achilles Tendon

A tendon is a band of tissue that connects a muscle to a bone.

Ankle Instability

Chronic ankle instability is a condition characterized by a recurring “giving way” of the outer (lateral) side of the ankle.

Ankle Sprains

An ankle sprain is an injury to one or more ligaments in the ankle, usually on the outside of the ankle.

Arthritis

Osteoarthritis is a condition characterized by the breakdown and eventual loss of cartilage in one or more joints.

Bunions

Even though bunions are a common foot deformity, there are misconceptions about them. Many people may unnecessarily suffer the pain of bunions for years before seeking treatment.

Toe & Metatarsal Fractures

The structure of your foot is complex, consisting of bones, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues.

Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetes can be dangerous to your feet—even a small cut could have serious consequences. Diabetes may cause nerve damage that takes away the feeling in your feet.

Taylor’s Bunion

Tailor’s bunion, also called a bunionette, is an enlargement of the fifth metatarsal bone at the base of the little toe.

Common Fungal Problems

Fungal problems seen most often are athlete’s foot and fungal nails.

Ganglion Cyst

A ganglion cyst is a mass of tissue that is filled with a jellylike fluid.

Hammertoes

Hammertoe is a contracture— or bending—of one or both joints of the second, third, fourth, or fifth (little) toes.

Heel Spurs

Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis—a condition that is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome when a spur is present.

Ingrown Toenails

When a toenail is ingrown, the nail is curved downward and grows into the skin, usually at the nail borders (the sides of the nail).

Injuries

Puncture wounds and cuts are not the same. A puncture wound has a small entry hole caused by a pointed object while a cut is an open wound that doesn't produce a "hole" but rather a long tear in the skin.

Neuromas

A neuroma is a thickening of nerve tissue that may develop in various parts of the body.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the band of tissue (the plantar fascia) that extends from the heel to the toes.

Poor Circulation

Commonly referred to as "poor circulation", Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D.) is the restriction of blood flow in the arteries of the leg.

Warts

A wart is a small growth on the skin that develops when the skin is infected by a virus.

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

The tarsal tunnel is a narrow space that lies on the inside of the ankle next to the ankle bones.
