As everyone knows, feet are everywhere—especially at the neighborhood pool! As I was “swimming” with my kids, (“swimming” means getting squirted on by squirt guns, throwing them around until my rotator cuffs are on fire, and playing “Ariel” on my stomach on the pool steps), one of the neighborhood moms said to me, “Do you do kids?”
“Do you do kids?”
Why, yes, we do; big kids, little kids, tiny baby kids, and teenage/college kids. We do kids all day long. Turns out, kids have feet, too! We love treating kids at our medical practice. All of our doctors have kids, so we are used to the quiet ones, the loud ones, the hungry ones, and even the scared ones. For me, there is nothing better than working to get a high-five from a little kid who is not excited to be at the doctor. That’s my goal every time I meet one!!
Happy to Help
At Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center, we see kids from newborns with congenital deformities to college athletes with major injuries. We see warts, ingrown toenails, flatfeet, and injuries suffered in the home. All of our doctors are board certified foot surgeons happy to help—usually without surgery. So, the next time you or a friend is wondering about a foot or ankle problem, remember this blog—yep, we do kids. And we love it!
