Consultations

Dr. Dixon invites patients to schedule an appointment for a consultation, during which your feet and ankles will be thoroughly examined for any potential abnormalities, while medical and family histories will be reviewed as well. Patients who experience pain or those just concerned about their foot health can benefit from a consultation with Dr. Dixon.

Foot Surgery

Foot Wound Care | Custom Orthotics | Shockwave Therapy for Heel Pain | Upper West Side Foot surgery is performed to treat certain foot and/or ankle conditions that have not responded to more conservative treatments, allowing patients to effectively relieve pain and reduce the risk of complications. Dr. Dixon specializes in a side range of surgical procedures, including for the treatment of bunions, hammertoes and other painful conditions.

IV Sedation with Board Certified Anesthesiologist

Many patients experience feelings of fear or anxiety before undergoing any kind of procedure, and can often benefit from intravenous (IV) sedation. Sedation is usually administered with local anesthetic to relieve pain in the treated area while the patient is in a deeply relaxed state.

Permanent Correction of Ingrown Toenail

An ingrown toenail is a common condition involving the corner of the toenail growing into the skin of the toe. Severe or recurrent cases may require removal of the nail and underlying tissue in order to permanently remove the infection. This can be done through a chemical or laser procedure, depending on each patient’s individual condition.

Cryosurgery for Warts

Plantar warts are non-cancerous growths that develop on the soles of the feet as a result of the human papillomavirus (HPV), appearing as a small, hard bump that may cause pain or tenderness when walking. These warts can be removed through several different noninvasive procedures, including cryosurgery, which uses freezing cold temperatures to destroy abnormal tissue cells on the skin.

PinPointe Foot Laser for Nail Fungus

 PathoLase PinPointe FootLaser Treatment | Toenail fungus Treatment  | Upper West SideNew technology has made treatment of toenail infections easy and long-lasting. Using the PathoLase PinPointe FootLaser, patients can experience immediate results from a simple procedure with no pain and no side effects. The PathoLase laser kills the pathogens that cause toenail fungus, which not only treats existing infections, but also helps to prevent them in the future. The results are faster and more effective than any other treatment for toenail infections currently available.

Foot Wound Care

Patients with diabetes often experience wounds or skin ulcers on the bottom of the feet as a result of nerve or blood vessel damage, with patients often unaware that anything is wrong. These wounds can become infected or lead to serious complications, and should be treated promptly and thoroughly. We provide comprehensive wound care, including cleaning, debridement and proper healing techniques.

Routine Foot Care

Healthy feet can be maintained through routine foot care with an experienced professional and by following basic preventive measures. Dr. Dixon specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of all foot conditions, using the most advanced, state-of-the-art technology and minimally invasive treatments. Patients are encouraged to see Dr. Dixon on a regular basis to reduce the risk of serious problems.

Custom Orthotics

Orthotics are devices worn in the shoe to alter or modify abnormal foot behavior. They aim to treat, adjust and support different disorders of the foot. While orthotics are available over-the-counter to correct general problems, the most effective orthotics are those that are custom made. Custom orthotics can be created to specifically fit the size and shape of the foot using an impression made from a cast.

Shockwave Therapy for Heel Pain

Shockwave therapy delivers intense waves of energy through the skin to stimulate the healing process in patients suffering from pain caused by heel spurs and other conditions. This is done by inducing microtrauma to the area that will then initiate a healing response. The shockwave therapy procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and only takes minutes. Improvement may be noticed within a few days, while full results take just a few weeks.

Foot and Ankle X-Rays

Foot and Ankle X-Rays | Upper West Side X-ray imaging allows for convenient, accurate diagnosis of bone injuries and disorders such as arthritis, fractures, osteoporosis and other conditions affecting the foot and ankle. The entire procedure takes just a few minutes to perform in the office. Patients are only exposed to minimal amounts of radiation during this procedure, an amount too small to pose any major risks.

Diagnostic Ultrasound

Dr. Dixon uses ultrasound as a primary diagnostic and visualization exam for soft tissue conditions of the foot and ankle because of its convenience, safety and effectiveness. This test can be performed to determine the cause of chronic or acute pain caused by Achilles tendonitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, arthritis and more. The images produced during this test can be viewed in real time for fast, accurate results.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy involves the rehabilitation of an injured bone, muscle, tendon, ligament or joint in order to relieve pain and restore maximum function to the affected area. Dr. Dixon utilizes customized stretching and strengthening exercises, while also aiming to enhance flexibility, coordination, posture, balance and gait. Treatment modalities such as massage, ultrasound, electrical stimulation and other therapies may be used, depending on each patient’s individual condition.
