A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. These form when your big toe pushes against your next toe, forcing the joint of your big toe to get bigger and stick out. Bunions often form from wearing narrow or tight shoes. Bunions can also form because of an inherited structural defect. Smaller bunions, known as “bunionettes,” can also develop on the joint of the little toes. These bunions can be unsightly but more importantly, painful. Contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Barbaro for bunion surgery to relieve your pain once and for all.
Laser Foot Surgery
Lasers have been used in surgery for 20 years by eye surgeons and other physicians, however, it was not until the early 1980’s that laser surgery was used to treat foot ailments. The laser beam is used in place of the scalpel to remove ingrown nails, infected toenails, warts, and deep calluses. With its minimal side effects, such as minimal scarring, and little-to-no pain, it’s no wonder more people are considering laser surgery.
Diabetic Nerve Testing
Here at our office, we also specialize in diabetic nerve testing. Individuals with diabetes sometimes suffer from foot problems that can often be attributed to neuropathy, or nerve damage. Dr. Barbaro, and his team will take the time to thoroughly examine your feet, checking your muscle strength and tone, tendon reflexes, and sensitivity to touch, temperature and vibration.

Heel Pain & Heel Spur
A heel spur is a calcium deposit which causes a bony protrusion on the underside of the heel bone. A heel spur is usually painless; however, there are times when they can cause extensive heel pain. This heel pain is frequently associated with plantar fasciitis, a painful inflammation of the tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. Dr. Barbaro provides custom made orthotics, and anti-inflammatory medications, as well as cortisone injections for these conditions. If you are experiencing heel pain, it is time to take action! Stop in to our office and let us treat your heel pain!
Wearing improper footwear, injuries, genetic disorders, disease, infection, and the effects of aging can all cause ankle and foot problems. Let us help you!

We look forward to hearing from you! Let Dr. Barbaro be your new, favorite foot doctor!
Though more common among athletes and runners, stress fractures occur when there is a crack in the bone, or severe bruising within a bone. A stress fracture is usually caused by overuse and repetitive activity, but they also occur when people change their activities, or the surfaces in which they practice these activities. If you’re suffering from foot pain and think you may have a stress fracture, visit Dr. Barbaro’s team right away.
Orthotics involves the use of specialized mechanical devices to control, guide, and limit or immobilize an extremity, joint, or body segment. They also allow you to restrict movement in a given direction, assist with general movement, reduce pressure, and help in rehabilitation from any fractures after a cast is removed.
Our foot surgeons ensure that relief is on the way!
