The goal of the Podiatry practice at Mount Sinai Doctors Brooklyn Heights is to improve the quality of life for patients suffering from foot and ankle conditions. Our specialist partners with patients to develop a personalized treatment plan that will enable them to walk without pain, wear shoes comfortably, participate in exercise and leisure activities, and prevent serious complications such as wounds or amputation.
Located in a convenient, community setting, we offer a continuum of care throughout the lifespan from childhood to adulthood.

Access to Specialty Care
Trained in Sports Medicine, our podiatrist treats traumatic injuries to the ankle and foot, including fractures and sprains. We have on-site x-ray, ultrasound, and CT scans, which allow diagnostic care to be centralized in one location and reduce the need for emergency room visits.
If orthotic inserts are recommended, we work with local vendors to measure and outfit patients. We also provide braces for pediatric patients when needed.
Our practice offers minimally invasive surgery, which reduces scarring and recovery time so patients can return to regular activity as quickly as possible. Examples of our surgical care include:
- Botox injections for the foot
- Diabetic procedures
- Foreign body removals
- Fracture relocation or manipulations
- Lacerations or puncture wound repairs
- Nail, wart, and skin procedures
- Simple incisions and drainages
- Wound debridements
A Team Approach to Diabetes Care
Many foot and ankle problems are related to comorbid diseases, such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. Our physician works closely with primary care specialists to intervene early and prevent the disease from progressing. We also partner with an on-site endocrinologist, dermatologist, vascular surgeon, and wound care specialist.
