Dr. Cichelli specializes in treating patients with foot, ankle, leg and lower extremity issues. This is increasingly important as people become more active and spend more time on their feet. Misalignment of the foot, which is the compensation caused by all of these other challenges in lower extremities will result in issues in the feet. There are a total of 52 bones in both feet, and this makes up one-fourth of all bones in the body. He can diagnose and treat disorders, diseases and various injuries sustained on the foot and lower extremities. The conditions that he treats are ankle and foot injuries, knee pain, lower back pain, infections, deformities, diabetes-related complaints, ingrown toenails, bunions, heel spurs, calluses, and acute foot and ankle injuries such as broken or severely sprained ankles, orthotics, etc. He uses x-rays and lab tests to detect serious conditions like arthritis and diabetes, since patients with diabetes are likely to get foot ulcers and infections due to poor circulation.
