As a small private practice, the Ankle & Institute of the South Sound offers a warm, welcoming environment, but also has the diagnostic technology found in larger hospital settings.

Serge and Ilona Barlam, graduates of the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, run Advanced Foot and Ankle Clinics, a full-service center with sophisticated diagnostics, diabetic care, and laser-therapy services. Their treatments emphasize preventive care, with routine care available for those without troubling injuries and physical therapy or surgery available for those who need major changes. Laser therapy relies on GenesisPro by Cutera, Q-Clear, or CoolTouch lasers to diminish the appearance of onychomycosis, a fungus that makes the toenails yellow, thicken, and unable to show off engagement toe rings.
Dr. Mikhail Burakovskiy's expertise in podiatry has earned him not one, not two, but three certifications from the American Board of Multiple Specialties—in primary care, in podiatric surgery, and in the prevention and treatment of diabetic foot wounds and diabetic footwear. It is this expertise⎯along with his skills with laser systems, injections, and surgical tools to alleviate foot problems such as bunions, ankle pain, and toenail fungus⎯that has helped him become the footcare specialist of fellow doctors.
Dr. Burakovskiy has also been featured on King 5 News as a podiatrist who doesn't chide women for wearing high heels, instead offering foot-pillow injections that create extra padding in the ball of the foot to reduce pain more efficiently than wrapping feet in bubble wrap. He is joined by Dr. Jacqueline Buckley, a Seattle native who has trained in foot and ankle surgery, podiatric medicine, and wound care. She attended Clark Atlanta University and the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, and has researched cadaveric achilles tendon transplantation, tendon repair, and amnion.
