Foot & Ankle Treatment at Mercy Orthopedic Associates

The Mercy Orthopedic Associates Foot and Ankle Center is unique because it leverages the expertise of providers from three disciplines: podiatry, physical therapy, and orthopedic surgery. Working as a team, we are committed to helping others live the active lifestyle for which this area is known. Our first objective is to prevent injuries to the foot and ankle, which we do through a variety of measures such as 3D-scanned custom orthotics, bracing, home exercises and formal therapy. When patients sustain acute or chronic injuries, we use a variety of non-operative tools and techniques including state of the art Laser Therapy. Surgery is our last option, but when it is necessary, patients can trust they are in good hands with our foot and ankle experts.

Dr. Daniel Stilwell, DPM, discusses conservative treatment options for podiatry conditions.

A conservative approach to treatments for podiatry conditions

Dr. Daniel Stilwell spent a lot of time performing surgeries, surgeries he felt unnecessary to his patients. This feeling and belief, developed into his goal of providing better outcomes for patients through conservative treatments.

Conservative treatment options include changing shoes, custom orthotics and physical therapy.
