Doctors of podiatric medicine Daniel Pero and Karl Michel have teamed up at Integrative Foot & Ankle to keep feet biomechanically sound and aesthetically pristine. In their medical office, both doctors breathe new life into ailing ankles and joints with a repertoire of curative techniques that ranges from ankle fusion and tendon repair to bunion exorcisms.
The office also incorporates a spa-like center entirely devoted to aesthetic concerns and pampering treatments. Foot peels, laser spider-vein and fungus removal, and even Botox injections help refine the skin's appearance, while more aggressive treatments such as stiletto-heel recovery therapy and fat-pad restoration keep the strut in clients' steps. The specialists even perform neuromuscular massage, paraffin treatments, and a nail service they have dubbed the medi-pedi, which infuses a salon treatment with medical expertise like the best of genetic hair-color modifications.
Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The dentist and his/her fellow toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for take-off, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
