Michigan foot doctor Anthony Weinert DPM has been seeing an alarming number of Canadian foot pain patients coming in with flat feet. Why are Canadians with flat feet suddenly crossing the border into Michigan in record numbers? The answer lies with a remarkable procedure Dr. Weinert offers in his Warren and Troy offices.
Dr. Anthony Weinert is a double board certified foot specialist located in Troy and Warren Michigan and is dedicated to relieving any foot or ankle problem. In the case of a patient with a foot imbalance or flat feet, Dr. Anthony Weinert has changed patients lives by using a lifetime solution called HyProCure®. As a master HyProCure® surgeon, Dr. Weinert offers the HyProCure® stent procedure for those patients who suffer from partial talotarsal dislocation. Dr. Weinert performs more of these procedures than anyone else in the state Michigan, and is the closest master Hyprocure surgeon to Canada, being only 34 minutes away from Windsor. With a state of the art private surgical center in Troy, Dr. Weinert is the best option for Canadians seeking to eliminate foot pain due to the quickness of surgical availability and the lack of downtime from the procedure.
Treatment and prevention of adult flatfoot can reduce the incidence of additional foot problems such as bunions, hammertoes, arthritis and calluses, and improve a person’s overall health, according to research published in the Journal of Foot & Ankle Surgery.
Overweight males in white-collar jobs are most apt to suffer from adult flatfoot disorder, a progressive condition characterized by partial or total collapse of the arch, according to the research. FootHealthFacts.org, the consumer website of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, notes that symptoms of adult flatfoot include pain, swelling, flattening of the arch and an inward rolling of the ankle. But because flatfoot is a progressive disorder by nature, the study suggests that neglecting treatment or preventive care can lead to arthritis, loss of function of the foot and other painful foot disorders.
“Flatfoot disorder may gradually worsen to the point that many of the tendons and ligaments in the foot and ankle are simply overworking, often to the point where they tear and/or rupture,” says Tri-county Michigan foot and ankle surgeon, Anthony Weinert, DPM, FACFAS.
“As in most progressive foot disorders, early treatment for flatfoot disorder is also the patient’s best route for optimal success in controlling symptoms and additional damage to the feet,” continued Weinert. “The goal is to keep patients active, healthy and as pain free as possible. With those Canadian podiatry patients who’ve been experiencing foot pain for a long time, often the Hyprocure procedure is a last ditch effort- but one that completely reverses all the pain and suffering they’ve had to endure. Most of them comment and tell me they wish they had done it sooner.”
