Foot Doctors Treating Patients from Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News, VA & Elsewhere on the Peninsula
Foot doctors specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders that affect the anatomical components of the foot and ankle, including the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The orthopaedic foot and ankle specialist at Tidewater Orthopaedics in Hampton Roads is experienced in utilizing a variety of innovative medical, physical, rehabilitative, and surgical approaches to manage and treat these conditions and injuries.
The foot specialist at Tidewater Orthopaedics is Dr. Paul Maloof, who completed his fellowship training in foot and ankle surgery at Duke University. As the only full-time orthopaedic surgeon on the Peninsula who specializes in comprehensive complex foot and ankle care, Dr. Maloof brings the latest treatment options and techniques to patients in Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News, and the surrounding Virginia communities.
At Tidewater Orthopaedics, our foot doctor evaluates, diagnoses, treats, and provides second opinions on a full range of foot and ankle conditions and injuries, including:
- Bone spurs
- Achilles tendonitis
- Plantar fasciitis
- Morton’s neuroma
- Equinus contracture
- Haglund deformity
- Fractures and other traumatic injuries
Unlike many other foot doctors in Hampton Roads and elsewhere, Dr. Maloof has a very conservative treatment philosophy. This means that, in all but the most severe cases, Dr. Maloof will recommend starting with one or more non-surgical therapies, such as medication, immobilization, stretching, or physical therapy, before surgical intervention is considered. At Tidewater Orthopaedics, our patients not only have access to fellowship-trained foot doctors, but also can benefit from our in-house physical therapy program. And, in the event that surgery is necessary, Dr. Maloof skillfully performs hammer toe repair, Achilles tendon repair, ankle fusion, bone spur removal, bunionectomy, and other foot and ankle procedures.
