FL Podiatrist Creates Scholorship Program for Student Athletes


Seniors student athletes from each of Collier County’s public high schools were awarded certificates and sports medals and have become eligible for one of three $2,500 scholarships awarded in late spring.












Dr. Mickey E. Gordon


Mickey E. Gordon, DPM, a Naples podiatrist with Gulfcoast Foot & Ankle Center, created the program after hearing of the difficult times his patients’ children and grandchildren were having with increased expenses of a college education. During his 31-year career as a podiatric physician and surgeon, Dr. Gordon has treated many athletic and sports injuries and has become well aware that lower extremity injuries are all too common in high school sports.


Gordon recruited his bank, Bank of Florida - Southwest and hospital Physicians Regional Medical Center to jointly pledge three $2,500 scholarships for student athletes. “It is a pleasure to recognize these student athletes for their hard work and accomplishments both in the classroom and on the field, court, pool or track,” said Dr. Gordon.

VA Podiatrist Enjoys Being a Mobile Specialist 


 


Joseph G. Smith, DPM, is a mobile podiatrist who travels across Hampton Roads, Virginia for house calls. He runs All American Podiatry and Wound Care with his wife Sondra, a former nurse. They met when she was working at a nursing home where he was treating patients. The Chesapeake resident spent two years as an Army medic and then went to nursing school at Old Dominion University before going to medical school. He was later in the Army reserves. At ODU, he studied biochemistry and did research on diabetic neuropathy, which got him interested in foot and leg care. He has been a podiatrist for about 20 years and specializes in wound care.


 













Dr. Joseph G. Smith



 


Dr. Smith said he earns more than $100,000 a year, keeping costs lower by not having to pay rent for an office. He likes being on the road too, loading up his brown minivan with supplies. “It’s kind of being in the trenches,” he said. “I kinda gotta used to what I have at hand to treat what’s there.” If he can’t, he’ll come back for another visit, or refer patients to another doctor.

FL Podiatrist Recommends Falls Prevention Steps


 


The Times-Union is honored to have large numbers of smart and talented readers. Through its Email Interactive Group, it offers them a chance to participate. A great example came with a letter from Earl Horowitz, DPM, a specialist in geriatric and general podiatry. He wrote a letter about seniors and the dangers of walking. He first noted that senior citizen years can be divided into three categories: 60-75, 76-85, and 86 and up. As seniors age, they become prone to falls, which are the leading cause of injury-related hospitalizations for seniors and tend to lead to a lower quality of life.


 













Dr. Earl Horowitz



 


Dr. Horowitz offers several great low-cost ideas: • All public and exposed staircases painted yellow, a caution indicator. • Curbs at the corners of sidewalks also should be painted yellow. • All corner sidewalks should be depressed so wheelchairs and seniors walking with canes can easily move from sidewalks to streets.

ACFAP and MA Podiatrist Sponsor Down Syndrome Buddy Walk



On September 30th, the DeCaro Total Footcare Center joined with the American College of Pediatric Foot & Ankle Pediatrics (ACFAP) to sponsor the 2017 Western Massachusetts annual Down Syndrome Buddy walk. ACFAP President Louis DeCaro, DPM was present to screen the participants for biomechanical issues associated with Down syndrome. "The combination of ligamentous laxity and low muscle tone in a majority of those diagnosed with Down syndrome contribute to a lifetime of orthopedic problems. Screening the feet as early as possible is imperative for successful prevention of these issues," said DeCaro.

 MI Podiatrist Discusses Podiatry's Radical Evolution


 


Podiatry has changed radically since its inception. "Nowadays, podiatric physicians routinely perform ankle replacement surgery, foot and ankle reconstruction, and a whole host of procedures, simple to complex. Then again, many conservative measures are utilized by the average podiatrist. That is one of the best aspects of this specialty. Generally speaking, a patient walks out of the office with significant relief of the pain they walked in with," says Conway McLean, DPM.


 













Dr. Conway McLean



 


"These days, podiatric physicians are able to provide a whole host of amazing, new treatments and techniques. Wound care is one field I find fascinating. The use of placental tissue as a source of stem cells has proven quite effective at helping to close chronic wounds. Cold lasers provide obvious relief of muscle and tendon pain, but are proving to also aid in healing these problematic wounds. Also, new forms of electrical stimulation have allowed us to improve blood flow into tissues that won’t heal. And that’s just wound care," says Dr. McLean.
