The Podiatry service provides state-of-the-art emergent, urgent, and elective Podiatric care to active duty, dependent and retiree patients served by General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital. This includes operative, non-operative, and casting/bracing services.
The goal of the GLWACH Podiatry clinic is to diagnose and treat patients with non-surgical and surgical musculoskeletal problems; peripheral neurological issues; sports injuries; biomechanical/postural/foot and ankle problems; and, bracing and/or prosthetic requirements generated from amputations after a surgical procedure. The practice of Podiatry provides surgical and medical care focused on restoring the disabled patient to a state of optimal physical, cognitive, social, and vocational effectiveness. When disability exists, our role is both preventive and restorative. Services are directed toward improvement and maintenance of maximal physical, functional, and emotional balance during the course of treatment. We render care to all age groups from pediatric to geriatric, and to patients who are healthy as well as to those who are medically compromised.
- Fracture management.
- Foot/ankle surgery (sports injuries, ligament tears, bunions, hammertoes).
- Can also treat foot pain and nail deformities.
GLWACH Podiatry Services has the right of first refusal for all MTF referrals. Beneficiaries are referred by their Primary Care Manager(PCM).
Beneficiary appointments are booked and managed as necessary. Patients are assigned to the first available appointment--unless a specific provider is indicated. Additional imaging may be necessary before the exam, in which case we work with the Department of Radiology’s scheduling asset to determine an imaging time for the Orthopedic patient.
Patients check-in at the Orthopedic and Podiatry Clinics reception desk.
