Feet are incredible.
They may look simple enough, and you probably don’t think about them much if they aren’t hurting. But underneath the skin, you’ll find a complex system of joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments, nerves, blood vessels—oh, and fully one quarter of all the bones you have in your body.
But all that complexity means that a lot can go wrong—especially considering the pounding that modern feet take on a daily basis!
At Silicon Valley Podiatry Group, we specialize in providing a premier level of care to any and all painful foot and ankle problems and conditions.
Here, “comprehensive” isn’t just a marketing buzzword. If your feet or ankles hurt, we can help. Read on and click the links below to learn more about many of the conditions we treat here.
Pain is always a sign that something is wrong and needs to be fixed. You should never just accept it as a normal part of playing sports or getting older. Most of the time, the longer you ignore your pain, the worse it will get—and the harder it may become to treat.
We offer advanced treatment options for these and other conditions:
Sports Injuries and Trauma
We serve an active community in Silicon Valley! Whether you’re a pro playing for the championship, a weekend warrior looking for bragging rights on the tennis court, or a recreational runner, all athletes are united by a love of the game—and an inability to sit still for long! We love caring for active people, and helping them rebound from foot and ankle injuries as quickly as possible.
Sports injuries we treat include:
- Achilles tendinitis
- Achilles tendon ruptures

Diabetic, Nerve, and Circulatory Conditions
If you have diabetes, your feet are at high risk of devastating injuries and complications—including those that can result in amputation if not treated promptly and successfully.
Thanks to advanced treatment options and our own on-site wound care center, we can help our patients with diabetes prevent, manage, and treat complications such as:
- Foot ulcers and wounds
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Peripheral artery disease
- Charcot foot
Structural deformities of the feet may be genetically inherited or developed through years of wear and tear. (Often, the true cause is a mix of both.) Unfortunately, most deformities will continue to worsen over time, and start causing significant arthritic pain and making daily activities difficult.
By seeking treatment early, though, you can stop the worst outcomes from occurring. We provide both conservative symptom management and advanced reconstructive surgical procedures for foot deformities, including:
Skin and Nail Conditions
Skin and nail heath is about more than just aesthetics. Sure, you want your feet to look great. But damaged nails and skin can be a sign of other health problems—and healthy nails and skin can help keep your body better defended against infection.
And in addition to providing medical treatment for the below conditions and others, we also provide pedicures and manicures at our medical spa—the safest, cleanest, and best place to get your nails done in San Jose!
- Athlete’s foot
- Corns and calluses
- Cracked heels
