Dr Kahen was very informative. He gave me a lot of information that I didn't know about my foot. I'm dealing with plantar fibroma, which is very painful. He took very good care of me and also gave me a lot of options of what needs to be done instead of going the surgical route.

Foot and Ankle Treatments Offered

Limb Preservation / Amputation Prevention/Wound Care

Why is limb preservation & amputation prevention so Important?

Limb salvage helps patients live longer and happier lives by preventing the need for amputation. After amputation—the complete or partial removal of foot or a limb—many patients begin to deteriorate rapidly. Statistics show that the mortality rate post amputation is:

  • 44% after 1 year
  • 66% after 3 years
  • 85% after 5 years


Many foot and lower limb amputations are due to foot ulcers resulting from diabetes complications including:

  • Poor circulation
  • Neuropathy – loss of feeling in your feet
  • Charcot foot – a deformity that forms in some patients with diabetes
  • Infections
  • Gangrene
  • Repetitive trauma – from ill-fitting shoes that cause redness, blisters and eventually sores

How do we prevent amputations?

Early diagnosis and treatment are important when it comes to limb preservation and amputation prevention. 

Our goal is to always save toes, feet, and limbs by any means necessary. We provide a wide range of diagnostics and therapies all conveniently located within our own practice to diagnose Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and other vascular conditions in order to prevent a leg or foot amputation including:

  • Diagnostics and evaluation: to gauge arterial / blood flow
  • Medical therapy: to promote your overall good health including counseling for tobacco cessation and guidance on nutrition and exercise
  • Minimally invasive prophylactic surgical procedures: to reduce deformities that can potentially lead to wounds, infection, and amputation
  • Surgical revascularization: make the referral to vascular surgeons to restore blood flow as soon as possible
  • Wound care: Use the most advanced treatment modalities to promote healing such as using Protein Rich Plasma (PRP) or Stem Cell.

Complete Foot and Ankle Care

At Legacy Foot and Ankle Center, we implement the latest evidence-based medicine to get you back on your feet. We offer conservative and surgical interventions in treating your foot and ankle condition.  

What are some examples of conditions that we treat?

  • Ingrown and fungal toenails
  • Bunions and hammertoes
  • Corns and calluses
  • Foot arthritis for osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis
  • Foot and ankle tendon condition
  • Fractures of toes, foot and ankle
  • Foot and ankle trauma
  • Inflammatory conditions (i.e Gout) 
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Diabetic foot exam
  • Poor circulation complications

and more…

Pediatric Foot Conditions

Children are affected by many of the same foot conditions that adults are, including plantar warts, flat feet, heel pain, and ingrown toenails. Some of these conditions take on different characteristics or may occur more frequently in children due to the nature of their developing bodies and their active lifestyle

What are some common pediatric foot conditions?

  • Flat feet
  • In-Toeing
  • Toe Walking
  • Knocked-Knees
  • Heel Pain
  • Bow Legs

Diabetic Foot Conditions

Foot problems are common in people with diabetes. They can happen over time when high blood sugar damages the nerves and blood vessels in the feet, causing numb feet (diabetic neuropathy) or poor circulation (peripheral arterial disease).  Common signs of diabetic neuropathy are numbness, tingling, pain, or a loss of feeling in your feet.

If you can’t feel pain, you may not know when you have a cut, blister, or ulcer (open sore) on your foot. A wound like that could get infected. The infection may not heal well because of the damaged blood vessels, leading to gangrene and amputations.

What should diabetics look out for?

Check your feet every day for cuts, abrasions, redness, swelling, sores, blisters, corns, calluses, or any other change to the skin or nails. Use a mirror if you can’t see the bottom of your feet, or ask a family member to help. Wash your feet every day in warm (not hot) water.

How to prevent diabetic foot complications?

  • Keep your diabetes under control
  • Don’t smoke
  • Inspect your feet daily
  • Wash your feet in warm water
  • Wear clean and dry socks
  • Shake out your shoes and inspect the inside before wearing
  • Never walk barefoot
  • Get a periodic foot exam
  • Cut nails straight across
  • Never trim corns and calluses  yourself
  • Moisturize your feet but not between your toes

Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are some of the more common causes of foot and ankle trauma. Podiatrists are exceptionally qualified to diagnose and treat the following sports-related injuries – foot sprains, foot fractures, heel pain, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, heel spurs, and more. They can also treat the inflammation that causes foot arthritis, which is often aggravated when participating in certain types of physical activity, i.e. running, tennis, baseball, basketball, and football.

Orthotics and Biomechanics

In the lower extremity, Biomechanics refers to the way bones, muscles, and joints of your feet and lower limbs interact and move. They will look specifically at Pronation – how the impact is absorbed and Supination – how you are propelled.

what are orthotics? 

Orthotics (also known as insoles, shoe inserts, or orthoses) are devices placed inside the shoes with the purpose of restoring the natural foot function. This is necessary when the natural biomechanical balance of our lower body has been disrupted by over-pronation or support is needed in general in high arched feet. 

Are all orthotics the same?

Foot orthotics can be made from different materials, and may be rigid, semirigid, semiflexible, or accommodative, depending on your diagnosis and your specific needs.

Minor Procedures

Minor surgical procedures are those that are minimally invasive. In most cases, these are performed through small incisions.  This allows the doctor to perform the procedure without damaging extensive amounts of tissue. The risk of infection is greatly reduced and the patient’s recovery time is much shorter. There are also surgical procedures that are superficial, only affecting the outermost portions of the body.  

What are some examples of minor procedures we perform?

Some examples include ingrown toenails, wart excision, punch, or excisional biopsies of the nailbed or the skin to rule out possible skin cancers.

Is Anesthesia Involved?

Yes, but minor procedures are performed under local anesthesia.

Most PPO Insurance Plans Accepted
