Put Your Feet In My Hands
Dr. Eric D. Trattner, Podiatrist - Foot Specialist
If you’re troubled by chronic foot pain and conditions like Hammertoes, but are put off by traditional surgery methods which can result in long recovery times, scary pins, pain and clumsy, uncomfortable therapeutic footwear, then a visit to Dr. Eric Trattner, podiatrist and foot specialist, can help.
Dr. Eric has literally gotten thousands of people back on their feet. Although he treats a variety of foot problems, he specializes in minimally invasive surgery to correct painful conditions like Hammertoes, heel spurs and even bunions.
“Hammertoes are one of the most common foot ailments I come across. They result from a contracture of the toe at one or all of the joints, can often lead to painful corns and sores, and can keep people from participating in the activities they love,” says Dr. Trattner.
Following traditional surgery, a patient could normally expect a six to eight week recovery period, considerable time off their feet, and surgical boots or shoes, not to mention a fair amount of pain. In Dr. Trattner’s practice, the same results can be achieved right in his office under local anesthesia with almost zero recovery time and little to no pain.
That’s because he uses a minimally-invasive procedure to straighten ugly, curled toes without the use of pins or stitches. Following this innovative process, you’ll be walking out of his office wearing your regular shoes with comfortable, straight toes, and you can return to normal activities almost immediately. Once the toe has healed, the corns usually go away.
A graduate of The Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine and Certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery, for more than 25 years Dr. Eric Trattner has built his practice around the concept of delivering the very best foot care in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
“I’ve made it my goal to utilize state-of-the-art technology and equipment so that all of my patients receive gentle care and fast relief from foot pain,” says Dr Trattner. He also specializes in Laser Treatment and offers Orthotics. “Orthotics are custom-made inserts designed to help re-balance your feet and allow them to function in a more efficient manner. The materials used today make them very well tolerated and easier to wear than in the past,” says Dr Trattner. “They are ideal for athletes or anyone who spends a lot of time on their feet.”
