Comprehensive Care at Schottenstein Center: A Holistic Approach to Foot and Ankle Health

In-Depth Evaluation: Beyond the Basics

At the Schottenstein Center, an evaluation is more than just a cursory look at a patient’s foot or ankle. It involves a thorough examination that encompasses a wide array of factors. This comprehensive assessment includes an analysis of the lower limb’s bones, joints, connective tissue, circulation, nerve function, as well as skin and nails. But the evaluation doesn’t stop there. We delve into the patient’s gait and footwear, crucial aspects often overlooked in standard examinations.

The Importance of Medical History in Diagnosis

A key component of our approach is the consideration of the patient’s full medical history. This holistic view ensures that no stone is left unturned. By understanding the broader context of a patient’s health, we can pinpoint the root causes of foot and ankle issues more accurately. This detailed history-taking is instrumental in crafting a diagnosis that truly reflects the patient’s health status.

Creating Customized Treatment Plans

Once a diagnosis is made, the journey towards recovery begins with a treatment plan that’s as unique as the patient. At the Schottenstein Center, we understand that each patient has a unique lifestyle and specific goals for treatment. These factors are integral in formulating a customized, evidence-based treatment plan. Whether it’s returning to sports, managing chronic conditions, or simply walking without pain, our plans are tailored to meet these individual objectives.

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Care

Our commitment to comprehensive care extends to a multidisciplinary approach. We collaborate with specialists across various fields to ensure that our patients receive the most effective and holistic treatment possible. This collaboration is vital in handling complex cases that require expertise beyond the scope of foot and ankle care.

Empowering Patients Through Education

We believe in empowering our patients with knowledge. Educating them about their conditions, the treatment options available, and preventive measures plays a crucial role in their journey to recovery. This patient-centric approach not only aids in the current treatment but also equips patients with the knowledge to prevent future issues.

Commitment to Evidence-Based Practices

At the Schottenstein Center, our treatments are grounded in the latest scientific research and best practices. We continually update our methods to reflect the most current findings in the field of podiatry and related medical disciplines. This commitment to evidence-based practices ensures that our patients receive the best care possible.
