Did you know at Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado we offer telemedicine appointments?

Did you know that we offer telemedicine appointments for your foot and ankle care?  We are doing everything we can to keep you safe right now and still help you with your foot or ankle problem.  We have a lot of good information about home care on our website, from heel pain (plantar fasciitis) and bumps on your feet (like bunions and bone spurs), to ways you can decrease arthritic pain and manage ingrowing toenails.

There are certainly some more emergent procedural appointments that are hard do over the phone, such as helping with an infected foot wound or ingrown toenail and helping with foot and ankle fractures.  Often times, ingrown toenails need in office procedures like nail avulsions or matrixectomies and broken bones need xrays and more hands-on treatment such as casting or surgery, but we are trying to help as much over the phone as possible.

Some appointments, such as follow-ups on MRI or CT scans and follow-ups on medication treatments for problems like peripheral neuropathy, are now being provided pretty much exclusively via telemedicine visits to try and decrease how many patients have to be seen for a face-to-face appointment.  We are also offering valet appointments if you have to be seen in our office, to keep you from being in the waiting area at all.

If you are having a foot or ankle problem, we are your Colorado Springs expert podiatry team and we're here to help.  Call Dr. Hinderland and Dr. Cameron today at 719-488-4664 so we can help you!  We offering same day and next day appointments for emergencies to treat you and get your problem resolved as quickly as possible.
