Ambulatory Surgical Center ~ ASC
The Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) is attached to our Wenatchee Clinic, saving you time and money. It is Washington state and Medicare approved. This podiatry-specific surgical suite provides anesthetic services from local anesthesiologists. We also employ a certified registered nurses.
Procedures at our surgical suite cost less than in a hospital setting, and infections rates are lower because we do not have the same exposure of chronic and acutely-ill patients in our facility. The ASC is used only by our doctors.
Clear digital diagnostic x-rays are only a step away from your exam room. This on-site service allows instant results to guide your treatment the day of your appointment. Our doctors at Foot & Ankle Center of Wenatchee read your films, saving you time and cost.
Hospital-based surgical treatment and reconstructive surgery
Sometimes more complex and extended foot surgery is necessary, and we perform these procedures in the hospital setting. Common hospital procedures include:
- Surgeries that require an overnight stay
- Advance bunion correction
- Reconstruction procedures for forefoot, midfoot and rear foot conditions
- Tendon reconstruction procedures
- Ankle arthroscopic surgery
- Treatment of persistent arthritis
- Treatment of old injuries or trauma to your foot and ankle.
Orthotic lab and shoe modifications
- Orthotic repair
- Orthotic evaluation, shoe evaluation and over-the-counter devices
- Shoe stretching
Our on-site lab and materials allow us to reposition your foot and give you a “test drive” (temporary adjustment such as a heel lift, accommodative pad or angular wedge for symptomatic relief).
We take a digital scan of your foot in most cases or make a casting to create a replica of your foot in its most functional position for custom orthotic fabrication. The goal of orthotic treatment depends on your specific needs:
- Generalized foot function
- Foot pain prevention
- Improved performance in activities like running, hiking, soccer, basketball, football, tennis, golf and balance positioning
The doctors at Foot & Ankle Center of Wenatchee are specifically trained to evaluate your gait and troubleshoot for problems such as:
- Knee pain
- Hip pain
- Back pain
- Short / long legged gait
A specialized functional pressure map device can be used to isolate painful regions of your forefoot and heel to help with diagnostic and therapeutic treatments.
