Y our feet have a lot to put up with every day. They're walked on, stepped on, stumbled over, pinched, bruised, blistered, kicked and all too often forgotten. The physicians in Bridgeport Hospital's section of Podiatric Surgery are dedicated to taking care of foot problems.

Podiatrists, are specialists also known as podiatric surgeons, who are specifically trained and licensed to perform surgery on the foot, ankle and sometimes lower leg. Foot problems that may require the care of a podiatrist include heel spurs, corns, bunions and hammertoes.
