Our Clinic

Our Clinic

Foot & Ankle Center of Middle Georgia is the premiere podiatry clinic serving Houston County and the surrounding area. We are located in Perry, Georgia, on Morningside Drive near Perry Hospital.

Your comfort and wellbeing are our top priorities. Our office is designed to make you feel at home, with private exam rooms that feature comfortable seating, and a waiting area where you can help yourself to snacks and drinks. We use the latest in diagnostic technology to better assess all of the treatment options available to you. Below are some of the diagnostic tools that we use.

C-ARM

C-Arm is a type of medical imaging machine that provides high-quality X-rays immediately. The name comes from the machine’s unique shape, which allows medical professionals to move it as needed. This machine is particularly useful in settings where a traditional X-ray machine isn’t an option, like in the field or during a surgical operation.  

Here at Foot & Ankle Center, we use C-Arm in both our podiatric center and our ambulatory surgical center. C-Arm technology uses fluoroscopic imaging, which displays the X-ray image on a screen continuously and in real time. This helps us see the anatomy of an injured foot or ankle faster during an initial exam, and lets us better visualize a surgical procedure at every step.  

Digital X-ray

Our podiatry center uses a state-of-the-art digital X-ray machine rather than traditional film X-rays so that we can diagnose your foot or ankle condition faster and more accurately. Digital X-rays allow us to view images within seconds of taking them instead of waiting for the film to be sent out, developed, and returned. And because the image is digital, we can enlarge or enhance it right then to better see the structure of your foot or ankle.  

Digital X-rays also use between 75% and 80% less radiation than traditional X-rays. This makes the diagnostic process safer for both our patients and our staff.

Our Facility

Ankle-Brachial Index Test

The ankle-brachial index test is a common test used to check for peripheral artery disease (PAD), or the narrowing of arteries in the legs, arms, and stomach. PAD occurs most frequently in the legs, so it’s important to check for this disease during your visit to your podiatrist.

The ankle-brachial index test is very simple — we measure your blood pressure at your ankle and at your arm, then compare the two measurements. If the blood pressure reading from your ankle is significantly lower than your brachial (upper arm) reading, you could be at risk for PAD, which increases your risk of heart disease, a heart attack, or a stroke.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is another type of medical imaging that we use here at Foot & Ankle Center. It uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image instead of the radiation used in X-rays and CT scans.

Unlike C-Arm and digital X-ray, which show solid bone structures, ultrasound is typically used to examine soft tissues within the body. Ultrasound is also unique because it allows us to study a foot or ankle in motion. These advantages are extremely helpful in diagnosing conditions like tendon or ligament tears, sprains, strains, plantar fasciitis, or circulatory or neurological conditions.
