Board-certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery, foot surgeon Dr. Lora Yeager-Smith has treated patients at Cahaba Podiatry since 1999, assuaging issues including foot injuries, toenail fungus, and warts. A Q-Clear laser system zaps unsightly toenail fungus, allowing feet to proudly display toenails in flip-flops or koi ponds. Free parking and first-floor access make visits to the practice quick and convenient.
Almost 20 years ago, Dr. Patricia M. Antero, a board-certified podiatrist and former member of the Alabama State Board of Podiatry, opened up her private practice to help patients treat foot-related ailments. Tuscany Podiatry uses noninvasive Nexus lasers to help improve circulation, reduce pain, scare away stray toes, and decrease swelling of the feet. During toenail-fungus-removal treatments, a technician aims a Q-Clear laser at toes to zap away infections without requiring surgery. Healthy nails typically grow back in about two to four months, unless they are hooves, which typically return to form in about six minutes.
Board-certified podiatrists Drs. Glenn and Tomeko McPhillips keep customers safely putting one foot in front of the other with personalized podiatric care and custom orthotics measured in a welcoming, comfortable office. During the initial consultation, a doctor scrutinizes feet from heel to toe, then takes custom molds of paws so that orthotics will fit every curve, bridge, and toe overpass. Using the molds, shoe-lining professionals craft inserts out of rigid, soft, or semirigid materials that will arrive in about two weeks to correct abnormal gaits and relieve foot pain. Customers who choose two pairs of orthotics receive one designed to fit inside casual or athletic kicks and another for dress shoes, customized to keep up with the rigors of ballroom dancing or formal grape stomping.
