What We Treat
When treating patient’s we always use conservative treatment before ever considering any type of surgical correction of the problem.
Nail fungus has been difficult to successfully treat. Until recently the only options were topical or oral medication, each with limited benefit and potential side effects, such as liver damage.
When pain is located in the center of the heel into the arch when you first get up in the morning or after sitting for a period of time you likely have heel pain with associated plantar fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common problem’s we see, successful conservative treatment occur’s in over 98% of the cases.
Custom-made orthotic devices are used to treat heel pain, plantar fasciitis, ball of foot pain, ankle type pain and lower leg and knee pain by controlling abnormal foot function.
A bunion is an enlargement of bone at the base of the big toe. It can occur on one or both feet. The big toe becomes deviated towards the second toe—this is called “Hallux Valgus.”
Lapiplasty 3D bunion surgery is a recently developed type of surgery for the most severe of all bunion deformities.
Ingrown toenails are very common. They are generally heredity and can also be caused by incorrect cutting of the nail itself.
Plantar warts which are also called Verruca occur on the sole of the foot.
Hammer toe deformities are commonly caused by bunions, flatfeet, heredity factors along with improper fitting shoes.
Morton’s Neuroma is an enlarged nerve that usually occurs between the third and fourth toes, but a neuroma can also occur between the second and third toes.
Corns & Calluses
Corns and calluses are thick, hardened layers of skin that develop when your skin tries to protect itself against friction and pressure. The pain you have is normally causes by a bone enlargement under the skin which is really causing the pain.
A Tailor’s Bunion is a painful enlargement of the bone on the outside edge of the foot, behind the small toe.
Fat Pad Restoration
Leneva is an FDA cleared injection to restore the natural cushion of fat to pressure points on the foot.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), is blood taken from a patient and spun in a centrifuge, concentrating the number of platelets. This plasma is re-injected into the site of injury or damage, inducing the body to repair damage.

Dr. Bembynista performed bunion surgery on me and it couldn’t have gone better. He explains the condition and treatment thoroughly, and is concerned about your comfort pre and post surgery. He even calls you the evening after surgery to check on you. All the office staff are great and I was always seen on time. I highly recommend Dr. Bembynista.

Foot care is never pleasant but Dr. B is so great you forget you are there for care. He is so knowledgeable and explains everything He is gentle and is concerned about your comfort and making sure you are comfortable. I will never see another podiatrist for care. If you need his service, once you meet him, you will know you have made the right choice. I went to him for bunion removal almost 25 years ago and have never had another problem with bunions. He is absolutely the GREATEST!!!!
