Foot and Ankle Care
If you’ve got a problem with your feet or ankles, we’ve got you covered. At Meli Orthopedic Centers of Excellence (formerly Orthopedix MD), podiatrist and surgeon Dr. Arthur Segall Jr. treats a variety of foot and ankle issues in adults and children.
Problems with your foot or ankle can truly disrupt your life. If you’re noticing pain, make sure you get checked out by the expert at Meli Orthopedic who can accurately diagnose the problem as well as provide the necessary treatment.

In addition to the very common blisters, warts, corns, and calluses, Dr. Segall at Meli Orthopedic treats the following foot and ankle conditions:
- Achilles tendon tear or rupture
- Ankle sprain and instability
- Arch pain
- Athlete’s foot

Diabetic patients have an increased risk of foot problems, so they should pay close attention to the health of their feet. These patients should regularly see their podiatrist and come in immediately at the first sign of injury. Nonhealing wounds, life-threatening gangrene, and amputation are very real threats for patients whose diabetes is insufficiently controlled.
Foot & Ankle Pain Treatments
Your treatment options will depend on your diagnosis and may include nonsurgical treatments as well as surgery options.
Custom orthotics are used to help correct many different foot and ankle issues. These made-to-order devices can correct structural problems that can lead to knee, hip, and spine pain or degenerative arthritis. Orthotics can also help alleviate painful symptoms of plantar fasciitis, bursitis, and more.
Surgery may be required to treat fractures or malformations, or in severe cases of bunions, heel spurs, and more.
