What should you do with foot and ankle pain during the coronavirus outbreak?

This is a really unprecedented time in our country.  It has left many people, included us in healthcare, asking questions about the best way to help and protect people with COVID-19 still spreading around our country and the world.

At Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado, we are very concerned about the safety and well-being of our patients.  We do remain open for business to help with all the urgent issues that arise with your feet and ankles.  We are still seeing patients for fractures, sprains, infections, tumors, and all other urgent foot and ankle pain and problems that you need help with.  

We are following all the CDC guidelines regarding cleaning procedures and social distancing as much as possible to ensure you can have your podiatric concerns met and improved in the safest environment possible.  We think one of the ways we can really help, is to still meet the urgent needs of our patients and Colorado Springs community during this time, so they don't end up having to go to the emergency department and potentially be exposed to the coronavirus there.

To try and stop the spread of the coronavirus, we have cancelled all elective surgeries until further notice.  We appreciate how inconvient this is for our patients, but we do think it's our responsibility to try and protect our community from the COVID-19 spread as much as possible.  We are still performing emergency surgeries for foot and ankle fractures, severe infections like diabetic foot infections that can be limb and life threatening, and other foot and ankle emergency surgeries as necessary.

If you have any questions, please call us at 719-488-4664.  Dr. Hinderland and Dr. Cameron are both expertly trained to help you with any foot and ankle problem that you may have.  Please stay safe, and remember that we are here to help you.
