A board-certified surgeon and podiatrist, Dr. Schaengold helms Plateau Foot & Ankle Clinic, where he diagnoses and treats a host of conditions plaguing the lower extremities. Every appointment begins with a thorough inventory of the patient’s history, followed by a comprehensive consultation. This not only allows Dr. Schaengold to prescribe the best treatment, but also to ensure his patients are well informed about their condition, treatment options, and the difference between toes and fingers.
Once a course of action is agreed upon, the doctor can begin treatment, be it laser surgery for warts, a nonsurgical shockwave therapy treatment for plantar fasciitis, or gait analysis and correction to alleviate lower-back, hip, and knee pain. And though Dr. Schaengold treats patients of all ages and lifestyles, he specializes in sports medicine, encouraging athletes to take preventive measures before embarking on new challenges.
