Ankle sprains. Athlete's foot. Diabetic foot care. Led by Dr. Audrey Abatemarco, a podiatrist with more than two decades of experience, the team at Mt Kisco Podiatry Associates addresses these and a host of other foot-related maladies. In treating patients, the team deploys sophisticated techniques, such as custom-made shoe inserts to alleviate pain and the PinPointe FootLaser to target toenail fungus.
Not even x-rays see all. Dr. Henry Slomowitz recognized this more than a decade ago, becoming an early adopter of diagnostic ultrasound, which can identify problems that a foot might normally hide from an x-ray. Diagnostic ultrasound is only the tip of the technological iceberg—aided by his staff of four, Dr. Slomowitz performs laser nail-fungus treatments and radio-frequency heel pain relief, among other advanced services.
Over the last 20 years, the medical experts at New Jersey Foot and Ankle Centers have seen 20,000 peoples' feet. Having worked with tens of thousands of patients, the staff has sharpened their expertise in all things related to feet, from plantar fasciitis and sprained ankles to ingrown toenails and bunions. One of their specialties is their use of lasers to help destroy unwanted fungus residing on nail beds. With fewer side effects than other treatments such as oral medication, topical creams, and magic potions, laser toenail-fungus treatments require zero downtime.
Foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Bruce Pinker helms Progressive Foot Care, where he welcomes patients in for a variety of foot-care needs. He and his team offer complete diagnostics and evaluations, utilizing x-rays, ultrasound technology, and circulation and nerve testing. Among the conditions they treat are toenail fungus, heel spurs, athletic injuries, and all surgical conditions of the foot.
Led by Dr. Hyun Joon Lee and Dr. Mariam Rahav, the staff of Scarsdale Integrative Family Medicine tend to patients in five areas: primary care, functional medicine, wellness services, nutritional services, and cosmetic services. The team, rounded out by a nutritionist, a licensed massage therapist, and a variety of fitness professionals, including a weight-lifting coach and personal trainer, works together to provide comprehensive care for patients, and encourages all visitors to speak openly with those providing them care.
Dr. Shay Markovitch, one of the three dentists at Westchester Smile Design, has spent the past 15 years straightening, whitening and otherwise beautifying teeth. Specializing in cosmetic dentistry, he conceals chips and other damage with Lumineers—an ultra-thin take on porcelain veneers—and straightens crooked smiles with transparent Invisalign aligners.
Dr. Markovitch and his fellow dentists work alongside an orthodontist and oral surgeon to ensure teeth are both healthy and pearly-white, aided by the latest technology. Video diagnosis, for example, allows patients to see live footage from inside their own mouths and computer-generated projections forecast how teeth will look post-treatment, unlike taking a bite out of a Magic 8 ball.
