Ankle & Foot Arthritis Treatment

At Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists, we understand the profound impact that foot and ankle arthritis can have on your everyday life. As the leading podiatric care provider in Dallas, our treatment approach is guided by Dr. Patrick Burge’s deep commitment to personalized care and the latest medical advancements.

Dr. Patrick Burge: A Commitment to Excellence

A renowned podiatrist with an impressive academic background, Dr. Burge has demonstrated a lifelong commitment to the field of podiatric health. After earning his undergraduate degree in electrical engineering with a biomedical specialization from Southern Methodist University, he went on to complete his medical degree at Temple University’s College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery.

Dr. Burge further honed his skills during a residency at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, where he served as the master chief resident for foot and ankle surgery. His dedication to clinical research and patient education led him to win first place for a podium presentation at the JPS Research Symposium, and he has published several research posters at the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons Scientific Conference.

Comprehensive Approach to Foot and Ankle Arthritis

Our treatment protocol for foot and ankle arthritis, guided by Dr. Burge’s expert approach, involves:

  • Evaluation and Diagnosis: Dr. Burge and his team conduct comprehensive examinations, utilizing advanced diagnostic technologies to identify arthritis accurately.
  • Non-Invasive Treatments: Initial treatment plans often include physical therapy, weight management, assistive devices, and NSAIDs. Regular gentle exercise can help to improve symptoms and prevent further joint damage.
  • Minimally Invasive Procedures: Should conservative measures prove insufficient, corticosteroid injections may be considered. These injections can provide temporary relief from joint pain and swelling.
  • Advanced Surgical Options: In severe or persistent cases, surgical interventions, such as joint fusion or replacement, may be necessary.

Patient Education and Home Care Tips

Dr. Burge places a strong emphasis on patient education, empowering patients to play an active role in their health management. Home care tips for arthritis include maintaining a healthy weight, performing low-impact exercises, and using heat or cold therapy for symptom relief.

At Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists, our ultimate goal is to help you regain comfort and mobility. Trust your foot and ankle health to Dr. Burge and his team – your wellness journey starts here.

I love Dr. McClurkin and Dr. Burge! Everyone is so helpful and they really know what they're doing. I will definitely see them again!
I have plantar fasciitis in both feet and suffered with pain on and off for many years. After trying another round of steroids with little improvement (this time the left foot was the culprit of my pain), Dr. Burge suggested I try their Lunula Laser. I must say I was skeptical at something for which I didn't see or feel anything during treatment. After completing the 6th round I realized I was not feeling the stabbing pain in my heel, that I had used my water socks and been at the pool with no pain afterwards, and I had worn my dressy sandals all weekend long and not complained of pain in my left foot at all! Now, that was a huge success for me! My right foot is acting up a bit now. I know what to do this time. No more steroids! It will be Lunula Laser for me!
Thank you for your excellent care. 🙏🏾💜

Dr. Burge has an exceptional bedside manner and is an excellent surgeon!
I was referred from a friend who had dr Burge help with his diabetic foot ulcer. My son came in for an ingrown toenail and we could not have been happier with the experience. The staff was fantastic, super friendly and very helpful. Dr burge is a younger guy related well to my teenage son and was very clear in his explanation of what was going on and how the procedure would progress.We would highly recommend him and his office as a great place to go.
UNFORTUNATELY broke my toe multiple times in the same year. FORTUNATELY I found Dr Burge. One of the kindest doctors I've ever met and such an efficient office. I never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes to be seen. I think my toe kept breaking because it liked him that much!
I can’t say enough about dr burge. His bedside manner is something I crave in every interaction I have. My foot could scare a grown man, and he made me feel like I could be a foot model. His attention to detail and gentle touch will never be forgotten.
