The Podiatrist’s Role

Podiatrists are highly trained medical professionals specializing in the intricate anatomy and functionality of the feet and ankles. Beyond routine care and pain management, these “foot doctors” play a pivotal role in addressing wounds, ranging from minor cuts and abrasions to more complex issues like diabetic ulcers. Here's a closer look at the multifaceted aspects of wound care at Mid Penn Foot & Ankle Specialists:

  • Expert Diagnosis: Our experienced podiatrists have the expertise to accurately diagnose the nature and severity of foot and ankle wounds. Whether the injury is a result of trauma, infection, or an underlying medical condition is used to determine the most effective course of action.
  • Targeted Treatment: Wound care is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and podiatrists understand this complexity. Our professionals develop personalized treatment plans tailored to the specific needs of each patient. This may involve cleaning and dressing the wound, prescribing antibiotics, or recommending surgical interventions when necessary.
  • Diabetic Ulcer Management: Diabetic foot ulcers represent a significant concern due to the complications associated with diabetes. Podiatrists excel in managing diabetic foot ulcers, focusing on preventing infection, promoting healing, and mitigating the risk of complications.

Why Wound Care is Paramount

Seeking professional wound care from a podiatrist offers many of benefits that extend far beyond mere injury resolution. Here are some compelling reasons to schedule an appointment:

  • Preventing Complications: Unattended foot wounds can quickly escalate, especially in individuals with diabetes or compromised circulation. Podiatrists play a crucial role in preventing complications such as infections, cellulitis, and, in severe cases, amputation.
  • Specialized Care: Podiatrists possess in-depth knowledge of lower extremity anatomy, allowing them to address wounds with precision and expertise. This specialized focus ensures that underlying issues contributing to the wound are identified and treated effectively.
  • Minimize Pain & Discomfort: Wounds, even seemingly minor ones, can cause significant pain and discomfort. Podiatrists prioritize not only the physical healing of wounds but also the alleviation of associated pain, promoting a quicker return to daily activities.
  • Holistic Approach to Healing: Our podiatrists take a holistic approach to wound care, considering factors such as circulation, nerve function, and overall foot health. This comprehensive perspective enhances the likelihood of successful wound healing and reduces the risk of recurrence.

What Our Happy Patiens Say

Susan Knippenberg

Dr. Zeno helped me to walk again without pain after years. He was very polite and experienced. I had really bad pain in my right foot that was giving me a hard time while walking. The treatment he recommended and I chose to go with cured my pains. Thank you, Dr. Zeno and Mid Penn Foot & Ankle Specialists.

Rachel Edwards

I came across this clinic when I was searching for a podiatrist in my area. The person who scheduled my appointment with the doctor was polite and was able to locate a time that best fit my schedule. The doctor was knowledgeable and was very helpful and understanding my concerns. He was able to locate the root cause of the pain I was having. Since the treatment, I feel much better. Thank you for taking care of me. Will use the clinic for sure If I need a foot doctor.

Donna Williams

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Zeno. I was a little bit nervous because I hadn't been to a Podiatrist in a long time. I had a big/ugly wart growing under my foot. The provider seemed to care about my issue. He removed it and wants to see me again to monitor the growth of my issue. And even stated to help it not keep reoccurring in the future. Thank you again. I was very pleased with the staff too. I will use this podiatric clinic If I need a foot doctor in the future.

He was a skilled and honest doctor. He treated the patient with sincerity and gave a detailed explanation of the pain. He was very patient with me and listened to all my concerns to find out what was best for me. The treatment he recommended helped my pain and now I can walk and run without pain. I recommend Dr. Zeno and Mid Penn Foot & Ankle Specialists to anyone in the York area. Thanks again for being patient and kind during my visit and treatment sessions.

Jessica Harris

Dr. Zeno was great! As soon as I walked in he made me feel comfortable with some friendly conversation while I filled out my paperwork. He was patient but direct with his questioning about my injury, and most importantly, explained exactly what was wrong and why. Doctors don't always get into the why, so I appreciated that he did so I could understand my injury and future prevention. He was also very clear about what I needed to do as far as recovery and helped me plan out the right steps to take, which helped me feel reassured immediately. I would recommend Mid Penn Foot & Ankle Specialists to anyone!

Rebecca Lewis

I have finally found a good foot doctor! The office was nice and clean, the nurse was kind and helpful in getting me ready. I didn't have to wait to be called to a room and nor for the doctor to come in. Dr. Zeno was awesome! He explained everything to me and I felt confident about what was going on with my toe, the treatment, and when it will heal. I will refer other people to him:):) Thank you guys so much!

Tony Rosas

Dr. Zeno was very knowledgeable and helpful, I had to visit while I was here for work. I would fly back out to him if I ever had foot problems. He is so kind and great at his work. Affordable as well if you don't have insurance. I would recommend this foot care & treatment clinic to anyone! Keep up the good work Mid Penn Foot & Ankle Specialists. 

John Cunningham

I came in for an ingrown toenail and Dr. Zeno did an amazing job. I have had this procedure done in the past but Dr.Zeno is hands down the best! And the clinic doesn’t overcharge while giving you a detailed overview of what you are paying for. Look no further this is the clinic you have been looking for! I would use this podiatry clinic if I need foot treatment. I will keep their contact information to use in the future if I need a foot doctor again.

Dr. Zeno is a doctor who, through his combination of personability and professional approach, is easy to trust. I leave my visits confident that Dr. Zeno is on top of my issues and has a well-thought-out plan of action. However, what is most satisfying to me is knowing that he is very straightforward and assures that you know the entire picture.
