Dr Joe Bozek, Podiatrist Beaver Pa Retires…Goodbye old friend!

Foot Doctor near Beaver Pa

Wishing a happy retirement to one of my favorite mentors, Dr Joe Bozek DPM 336 College Ave, Beaver Pa.

28 years ago during my surgical residency at Heritage Valley, I had the honor and privilege of training under Dr Bosek. He was the kind of old school Podiatrist who knew every one of his patients by name and after who’s practice I wished to model mine. He trained me in the surgical correction of hammertoes, and patients have been happy for 28 years!

During my training I spent every bit of extra time I had in his office, mastering the fine art of old time podiatrists who still have time to cut toenails for our older and diabetic patients, and provide diabetic foot checks. Corns and callouses? No problem. If it’s on your foot, we can take care of it.

What problem a foot doctor treats?

A foot doctor, also known as a podiatrist, is a medical professional who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of various conditions affecting the feet, ankles, and lower extremities. Some common problems that a foot doctor treats include:

  1. Foot Pain: Podiatrists address various causes of foot pain, including plantar fasciitis, bunions, neuromas, and arthritis.
  2. Ingrown Toenails: Podiatrists can provide treatment for ingrown toenails, including removal of the ingrown portion and addressing any infection.
  3. Foot and Ankle Injuries: They diagnose and treat injuries such as sprains, fractures, and ligament damage in the feet and ankles.

What to do if your foot doctor recommends surgery for some foot problems?

If a foot doctor recommends surgery for foot problems, it’s important to approach the situation with careful consideration and take the following steps:

1. Seek a Second Opinion:

   – Before proceeding with surgery, consider seeking a second opinion from another qualified foot specialist. This can provide additional perspectives and insights into the recommended treatment.

2. Ask Questions:

   – Discuss the details of the proposed surgery with your foot doctor. Ask about the specific procedure, expected outcomes, potential risks, and the recovery process. Understanding the full scope of the recommendation is crucial.

3. Understand Alternatives:

   – Inquire about non-surgical alternatives or conservative treatments that might be effective for your condition. Some foot problems can be managed without surgery, and it’s important to explore all options.

4. Consider Risks and Benefits:

   – Assess the potential risks and benefits of the recommended surgery. Understanding the possible outcomes and any associated complications is vital for making an informed decision.

5. Evaluate Impact on Daily Life:

   – Consider how the surgery and recovery process may impact your daily life, including work, family responsibilities, and activities. This evaluation helps you gauge the practicality of the recommended intervention.
