The board-certified podiatric surgeons at Novant Health Foot & Ankle – Westgate have dedicated their careers to delivering the most advanced foot and ankle care available. They will work to accurately diagnose your concern and begin treatment quickly so you can maintain or regain as much mobility as possible. You can begin your journey to recovery now by scheduling your first appointment online using MyChart or open scheduling through our providers page.

At your first visit, your care team will listen to your concerns and assess your current medical condition. Together, you will consider both nonsurgical and surgical treatment options and choose the right plan for you. Should you require surgery, Novant Health’s ongoing commitment to training and new technology means you will have access to advanced minimally invasive surgery methods, which can reduce your recovery time.

Your care team understands that your successful recovery is often tied to your overall health. Before your treatment begins, your providers will work with you to identify and address any underlying health issues – smoking, abnormal blood sugar levels, excess weight or mental health conditions – that could negatively impact your recovery. After treatment, your care team will continue to be there for you, offering access to rehabilitation services, including physical therapy, when needed.
