Runners. Dancers. High school athletes. Weekend warriors.

Sports injuries can keep you from enjoying your favorite activities. Dr. Brodine and Dr. McCalla can help you get back on the field – or the court – or the stage – by treating common athletic injuries.

  • plantar fasciatis
  • capsulitis
  • stress fractures
  • ankle sprains
  • blisters
  • ingrown toenails
  • and more

Whatever your athletic activity and level, the doctors at Advanced Foot Care Center are capable of keeping you at the top of your game.


Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that shows a continuous X-ray image on a monitor, much like an X-ray movie. The image is transmitted to a monitor so the movement of the foot and ankle can be seen in detail. Fluoroscopy is used in a wide variety of examinations and procedures to diagnose or treat patients.

Fluoroscopy provides “moving pictures” of foot and ankle joints, allowing the podiatrist to see a complete picture of the issues that may be causing pain.

Advanced Foot Care Center has on-site fluoroscan equipment, so patients do not have to make appointments at outside medical facilities to utilize this diagnostic tool.

Ask Dr. McCalla and Dr. Brodine for more information during your appointment.

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) can lead to pain in the extremities, difficulty when walking, slower healing and even loss of limb. Advanced Foot Care Center uses Smart-ABI to test and clinically diagnose patients who may be at risk for Peripheral Arterial Disease. The American Heart Association recommends testing all patients at risk for PAD, and the American Diabetes Association recommends annual foot examinations that include PAD testing.

The Smart-ABI equipment performs a one-minute test that measures a patient’s Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) – the blood pressure in the ankle area, blood pressure, body mass index and more. When the test is complete, a report is generated that provides graphic scores indicating Normal, Borderline or Severe. The data provided by the test can help your doctor determine a course of treatment.

Ask Dr. Brodine and Dr. McCalla for more information during your appointment.
