Brachymetatarsia Treatment

As part of the community in the Lakewood area of Dallas, Texas, Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists excel in providing expert and compassionate podiatric care. We understand how conditions like brachymetatarsia can affect your mobility, comfort, and quality of life. Our team, led by the dedicated and highly skilled podiatrist Dr. Patrick Burge, is committed to restoring your foot health using the most advanced and personalized treatments.

Understanding Brachymetatarsia

Brachymetatarsia is a condition where one of the metatarsal bones in the foot is significantly shorter than the others. This discrepancy can lead to pain, difficulty walking, and cosmetic concerns. Dr. Burge and our team of specialists thoroughly evaluate your condition to determine the most effective treatment approach.

Dr. Patrick Burge: Leading the Way in Podiatric Care

Dr. Burge brings a wealth of knowledge and a personalized approach to patient care. An alum of Southern Methodist University and Temple University, College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery, he completed his residency at John Peter Smith Hospital, gaining extensive experience in foot and ankle surgery. His deep-seated belief in customized, one-on-one care forms the foundation of our practice.

Our Protocol for Brachymetatarsia Treatment

Treatment for brachymetatarsia at Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists follows a comprehensive and patient-centric approach:

  • Assessment and Diagnosis: We thoroughly evaluate your foot, using imaging studies if necessary, to accurately diagnose brachymetatarsia and its severity.
  • Non-Surgical Treatments: For minor cases, we might recommend non-surgical treatments such as wearing special shoes or inserts to help redistribute weight and relieve discomfort.
  • Surgical Treatment: More severe cases often require surgery to lengthen the affected metatarsal. Dr. Burge is skilled in the latest surgical techniques to ensure the best possible outcomes.

Home Care Tips for Brachymetatarsia

While professional medical intervention is often needed for brachymetatarsia, there are steps you can take at home to manage your symptoms and prevent further complications:

  1. Wear Supportive Footwear: Opt for shoes with wide toe boxes that provide ample space and comfort.
  2. Use Custom Orthotics: Special shoe inserts can help redistribute pressure on the foot, easing discomfort.
  3. Engage in Foot Care Practices: Keep your feet clean, moisturize regularly, and maintain proper toenail hygiene.

At Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists, we strive to offer the highest standard of foot and ankle care. Entrust your foot health to the best in the area, and experience the difference that personalized, cutting-edge care can make. With Dr. Burge and our skilled team by your side, you can step confidently towards improved foot health.

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.
