Experienced Podiatrist Practicing Near New Albany, IN

Do you have nagging foot or ankle pain? Even though it might seem like a minor inconvenience, persistent discomfort is not normal. Whether your pain stems from a recent injury or has developed seemingly out of the blue, a skilled podiatrist can determine the cause and provide the specialized services you need.

At Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic near New Albany, Indiana, you can see Dr. Dawn M. Michels, a board-certified doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM). Dr. Michels is an accomplished podiatric physician with more than two decades of experience in private practice in the Louisville area. Her approach is centered on establishing positive, long-term relationships with her patients and colleagues.

Prioritize Your Foot and Ankle Health

According to the American Podiatric Medical Association, foot and ankle conditions are highly prevalent—and often ignored. Many people simply try to endure the pain with the hope that it will resolve on its own. However, delaying treatment can lead to worsening discomfort that may require more complex, time-consuming, and costly interventions in the future. Therefore, it is crucial to seek professional help from a podiatrist sooner rather than later.

As a podiatrist, Dr. Michels focuses on providing personalized, conservative care for many common foot and ankle conditions, including:

  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Flatfoot
  • General foot pain
  • Hammertoes
  • Heel pain
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Neuromas
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Plantar warts
  • Ankle fractures
  • Toenail injuries

Once she identifies the root cause of your foot or ankle pain, Dr. Michels will suggest a non-surgical treatment plan to address your specific needs. This may include a combination of:

  • Medications
  • Custom orthotics
  • Bracing
  • Injections
  • Physical therapy

Take Your First Step Toward Relief

Don’t allow foot or ankle pain to limit your daily activities or diminish your overall well-being. 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 diabetes or another health condition that makes you prone to foot issues, Dr. Michels can help.

Contact Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic today to schedule an appointment at our state-of-the-art podiatry clinic near New Albany, IN, where Dr. Michels will provide you with expert podiatric care.

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!
