Watch out for foreign bodies and your feet!

As the weather starts to get warmer, more of us will be going barefoot. It's very important that we protect our feet from sharp objects. This afternoon, I removed 3 pieces of a broken earring out of a patient's foot that was also getting infected.  If you step on something that punctures your skin, it's important to see a podiatrist right away to avoid more problems.  You would be amazed at the different things we have to take out of feet.  We have removed several sowing needles and even debri left over from a sting ray bite.

At Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado, Dr. Hinderland and Dr. Cameron are highly trained in both surgical and nonsurgical treatments to keep you active.  They love to help patients get their feet and ankles feeling as good as possible, so that they can live active and healthy lifestyles.  If there is anything we can do to help you, call our Colorado Springs office at 719-488-4664, so we can help you!
