The team at the Foot and Ankle Center of Nebraska will no longer be offering laser therapy. This service has become cost prohibitive to continue. We are recomending that anyone interested in this therapy contact Dr John Wermey if interested in this therapy. His contact information and more information on laser therapy can be found at http://heartlandfoot.com/.
The Third Annual American Society of Podiatric Surgeons (ASPS) Surgical Conference was recently held in Baltimore, September 11-12, 2015. Dr. Robert Greenhagen lectured on predislocation syndrome also known as lesser metatarsophalangeal instability. He covered a variety of topics on the condition including proper diagnosis/clinical examination, non-surgical treatment and surgical options. He also introduced a new surgical technique that both he and Dr. Nelson have been developing to correct the condition. This technique and outcome data will be published in the near future in hopes of advancing the treatment of this difficult condition.
We are pleased to announce that Dr David Rettedal will be joining the Foot and Ankle Center of Nebraska team. He will complete his residency training at the prestigious University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in June of 2016. He will begin seeing patients at our offices in July of 2016. More information will follow as that date approaches
