Podiatry

Podiatrists are medical specialists who help with problems that affect your feet or lower legs. They can treat injuries as well as complications from ongoing health issues like diabetes. You might hear them called a podiatric physician or doctor of podiatric medicine. Dr. Hannah Johnk provides podiatry services at Myrtue’s Podiatry Clinic.

Podiatrists can do surgery, reset broken bones, and prescribe drugs, and order lab tests or X-rays. They often work closely with other specialists when a problem affects your feet or lower legs.

Feet are complex structures, all-in-one stabilizers and shock absorbers that are instrumental to overall health and well-being. They require expert care. The DPM means a physician has completed years of rigorous foot and ankle training in podiatric medical school and hospital-based residency training, making him or her uniquely qualified to care for this part of the body.

Treatments provided by podiatrists range from:

  • Treatment of ingrown toenails
  • Preventative diabetic foot care
  • Surgeries to improve chronic conditions such as bunions or foot pain.
  • Sports Injuries of the foot, ankle and lower leg

Myrtue’s Podiatry Clinic is available Monday – Thursday 8 am – 5 pm and surgeries on Friday Dr. Johnk provides consultation services in the Harlan Rural Health Clinic and as well as providing outpatient surgery. In addition, Dr. Johnk provides foot and dietetic care to area nursing home residents.
