In three weekly visits, doctors employ ultrasound treatments to ease pain caused by plantar fasciitis or heel spurs. The treatment pulses high-pressure sound through the skin to help the soft tissue and bone heal more strongly. Each treatment takes roughly five minutes per foot, and optimal results generally occur after 12 treatments.

Dr. Howard Ortman's medical career spans more than 30 years, four hospitals, and his own private practice, where he now cares for foot and ankle maladies with both conservative and surgical treatments. He and his staff uphold prompt diagnosis, early intervention, and prevention as essential tenants for maintaining the health of feet. To this end, they use x-rays and diagnostic ultrasounds to uncover pedal woes, perform in-office surgery with safe sedation methods such as local anesthesia, and keep feet aesthetically pleasing with laser treatments for nail fungus, warts, in-grown toenails, and in-grown shoes. In his quest to stay on top of the most advanced techniques, Dr. Ortman regularly attends conferences sponsored by esteemed institutions.
