Helping you put your best foot forward

Our specialized Tri-City podiatrists are specifically trained in a variety of medical and surgical techniques to help minimize pain and to prevent loss of function of any part of the foot or ankle.

Many foot and ankle conditions can be treated in our office under the care of our podiatric physicians and surgeons. We believe in doing what is best for your personal situation, which rarely starts with surgery. However, when all conservative treatment options have been exhausted, your condition may need surgery, in which case we offer a high level of foot and ankle surgical solutions in Richland, Pasco, Kennewick, and the greater Tri-City area.

Feet are the part of the body most prone to injury; however, they're often ignored. Many people consider foot pain to be normal, but foot conditions can become serious very quickly, and home remedies may not be enough to relieve your pain. Do your feet a favor and schedule an appointment. We'll do our best to help you put your best foot forward.

As skilled podiatrists in the greater Tri-Cites, including Richland, Pasco, and Kennewick, we are committed to providing you with the best care possible. Whatever treatment is needed, we will make sure that your care is completely personalized. After all, no two feet are alike! Contact us today or come visit us at Tri-City Foot & Ankle Center, where we will be honored to serve you
