Podiatry

At United Medical, our New Jersey podiatrist, Dr. Robert Briganti, can diagnose and treat just about any problem that affects the foot or ankle. He sees a lot of athletic injuries involving the ankle, as well as plantar fasciitis, one of the most common causes of heel pain.

Dr. Briganti will help minimize and manage your pain so you can return to work or play quickly. He can provide non-surgical care as well as perform foot and ankle surgery to repair tendon or ligament tears; correct deformities; or treat toe, foot, or ankle fractures.

Podiatry services at United Medical include custom-fit orthotics, diabetic foot care, and treatment of many common causes of foot and ankle pain or instability:

Most foot and ankle problems usually go away with time, using ice, heat, and anti-inflammatory drugs. However, if you experience any of the following symptoms, you should see a podiatrist:

  • Abnormal growth of a lump or bump that hurts
  • A mole that changed in color and/or size
  • Foot discoloration
  • Numbness, burning, or tingling
  • Pain and swelling of one foot
  • Prolonged open sores
  • Severe pain that lasts over 24 hours
  • Sudden, unexplained pain

Dr. Briganti will examine your foot and provide the most accurate diagnosis and effective treatment based on his expertise. It is important to see a podiatrist to treat any problems before they become worse. Trying to wait it out may make the symptoms worse and create more problems that could have been prevented.

To schedule an appointment with an experienced podiatrist in New Jersey, call the United Medical location where you’d like to be seen. Dr. Briganti sees patients in all three offices: Lyndhurst, Clifton, or Bayonne, New Jersey.
