Dr. Oliver Zong and Dr. Dina Tsentserensky opened NYC Footcare with a simple mission: treat the ailments that plague the feet. While they specialize in enhancing health and function, addressing such issues as hammer toes, bunions, and heel pain, the team also considers the foot's aesthetic appearance. Dr. Zong has coined terms such as foot makeover and foot face-lift as a means of describing their emphasis on the cosmetics of one of the body's more underappreciated parts.
In order to diagnose conditions afflicting that hardworking appendage, the staff utilizes advanced diagnostic equipment. MRIs, CAT scans, and diagnostic ultrasounds delves deep into the recesses of heels and toes to seek out the source of discomfort and the uncontrollable urge to jitterbug.

Laser nail-fungus treatments require no ointments or anesthetic, and shock-wave therapy can help alleviate heel pain without the need for surgery.
Your feet's vital stats might seem simple—two feet, ten toes—but there's a lot more to them than meets the eye. Beneath the surface, each one is made up of 26 bones, 30 joints, 19 muscles, and more than 100 ligaments, enough moving parts that treating a foot ailment can be unexpectedly complicated. Luckily, the three doctors at Podiatry Foot and Ankle Institute – Dr. Edward Harris, Dr. Antonella Cella, and Dr. Naomie St. Pierre – specialize in ferreting out and treating the root cause of discomfort in the foot area. Both Dr. Harris and Dr. Cella are Fellows at the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and board-certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, and Dr. St. Pierre received her D.P.M. degree from New York College of Podiatric Medicine. Together this team of three tackles a variety of ailments, from athlete's foot, bunions, hammertoe, and ingrown nails, to sports and other injuries like sprained ankles and turf toe.
