What is a Podiatrist ?

A Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases, disorders and injuries affecting the human foot, ankle, and lower leg. The podiatrist evaluates x-rays, administers treatment, prescribes medication, and performs foot and ankle surgery when necessary.

Dr. Savidakis is trained in the latest techniques in surgery, orthopedics, dermatology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, enabling him to prevent, control, and cure foot health problems. He treats patients of all ages: from birth to late adulthood.

If a foot, ankle or leg problem is treated early in its development, this can save the patient from years of discomfort and, at times, save the patient’s own leg from amputation.

Dr. Savidakis is also a WOUND SPECIALIST, dedicating a large portion of his practice to the treatment of open, non-healing wounds on the foot and lower leg. In addition, for eight years, he has previously treated patients at the Morton Plant Comprehensive WOUND HEALING CENTER in Clearwater.

Our office now offers the latest in footcare technology: LASER TREATMENT for unsightly toenail fungus, PedAlign custom orthotics, and The Nerve ReBuilder for advanced NEUROPATHY TREATMENT.
