Comprehensive Podiatric Services in Louisville, KY

The human foot is an extraordinary structure consisting of 26 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This intricate assembly provides essential support, stability, and mobility to the entire body.

If you have foot pain, you are not alone. Consider this: According to the American Podiatric Medical Association, the average person takes approximately 8,000 steps each day, which is equivalent to covering several miles on foot. With every step, the feet bear significant pressure, carrying up to four times the weight of the body. For this and other reasons, foot pain is quite common, affecting up to 75% of Americans at some point during their life.

Dr. Michels: A Leader in Podiatric Excellence

When it comes to maintaining optimal foot health, working with an experienced podiatrist is paramount. Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic—your trusted source of comprehensive orthopedic care in Louisville, Kentucky—offers a full spectrum of podiatric services. Our esteemed team of orthopedic subspecialists includes Dr. Dawn M. Michels, a board-certified doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM).

Foot Pain Should Never Be Ignored

In addition to impairing your balance and mobility, foot pain can increase your risk of falling. Your feet can also provide important clues about your overall health. For instance, the early warning signs of several potentially serious underlying medical conditions—such as diabetes, heart disease, and deep vein thrombosis (DVT)—may first become apparent in your feet.

If you have foot pain, you can confidently entrust your care to Dr. Michels. At Louisville Orthopedic Clinic, she provides a comprehensive range of conservative, in-office podiatric services, including:

  • Steroid injections
  • Toenail and foot fungus treatment
  • Treatment for sports-related injuries, including ankle sprains and fractures

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
