Frequently Asked Questions

Can a podiatrist perform surgery?

Yes! Podiatrists are doctors who attend four years of podiatric medical school training followed by at least three years of residency training. They receive their Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) and are certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery, in Foot Surgery, with the ability to also certify in Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Surgery. Their training is very similar to medical doctors (MD or DO). DPMs focus on the foot and ankle much earlier in their training. Podiatrists can do surgery, treat acute injuries and broken bones, prescribe medications, admit patients to the hospital and order lab or imaging tests.

Do you perform bunion surgery?

Yes, NCMA Foot and Ankle Center's Dr. Ashleigh Korves offers traditional bunion surgery and miniBunion™ minimally invasive surgery procedures to help patients with bunion deformities.

The treatment for bunions begins with conservative measures aimed at reducing pain and slowing down the progression of the bunion. If conservative treatment doesn't ease the pain and your bunion is disrupting your lifestyle, then it may be time to look at surgical options. Usually, bunion surgery can be done as an outpatient procedure without a hospital stay, minimizing your time away from home.

For mild or moderate bunions, the miniBunion is a new surgical option that provides patients with a more rapid return to regular activity, compared to traditional bunion surgery. The miniBunion procedure is a minimally invasive technique for implanting a micro-implant. The procedure involves making a small incision less than one-inch on the side of the foot. During the procedure, the bones are realigned, the micro-implant is inserted, and the incision is closed.

What do you see a podiatrist for?

Podiatrists are foot health experts who are trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate medical and surgical conditions of the foot and ankle. If you are having any problems regarding your feet or ankles, a podiatrist can help you treat these ailments, either with conservative care or surgical intervention. Some health conditions can make you more susceptible for foot issues and a podiatrist can help you address prevention as well.

Should I see a podiatrist or orthopedist for foot pain?

Podiatrists and orthopedic surgeons treat many of the same conditions, but the training is different. A podiatrist is a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) who attends four years of podiatric medical school training followed by at least three years or residency training. Podiatrists focus on the foot and ankle much earlier in their training as opposed to orthopedists who train to treat musculoskeletal issues of the entire body.

Both specialties can treat foot and ankle ailments conservatively or surgically. Although there are more similarities than differences between the two specialties, podiatrists will also treat dermatologic and biomechnical issues of the foot and ankle. Since feet are very complex structures with 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 ligaments, tendons and muscles, it is very important to get expert care and find a doctor who is certified to treat the foot and ankle.

Do podiatrists take insurance?

As a Northern California Medical Associates practice, NCMA Foot and Ankle Center accepts most commercial health plans and Medicare. In general, foot and ankle services provided by podiatrists are usually covered by health insurance plans. However, not all podiatrists accept all insurance plans so always check with your provider first before beginning your care.
