Experienced Podiatrist Practicing in Louisville, KY

Dawn M. Michels, DPMPersistent foot pain is common, but it is not normal. Whether you recently injured your foot or ankle, or your discomfort developed for no apparent reason, you can receive the specialized care you need from a podiatrist. Dr. Dawn M. Michels is a board-certified podiatrist who practices at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic in Louisville, Kentucky, where she focuses on providing comprehensive, conservative care for a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions.

According to the American Podiatric Medical Association, foot and ankle conditions are among the most widespread and neglected health issues affecting people in the United States. Although it can be tempting to try to “power through” the pain, it is important to see a podiatrist sooner rather than later. If left untreated, many foot and ankle issues can worsen and require more complex, time-consuming, and costly treatment down the road.

Foot and Ankle Conditions We Diagnose and Treat

As a podiatrist, Dr. Michels provides the latest in-office treatments for:

  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Flatfoot
  • Foot pain
  • Heel pain
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Neuromas
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Stress fractures
  • Toenail injuries
  • Warts

After pinpointing the cause of your foot or ankle pain, Dr. Michels can suggest a non-surgical treatment plan to address it. This may include a combination of medication, custom orthotics, bracing, injections, and/or physical therapy.

Stop Ignoring Your Pain

An accomplished podiatric physician with more than two decades of experience in private practice in the Louisville area, Dr. Michels aims to establish positive, long-term relationships with her patients and peers. Whether you have sustained a sports-related ankle injury, are limping through the pain of an ingrown toenail, or need preventive care because you have a health condition that makes you prone to foot issues, she can help.

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!
