I’m Dr. Nicholas Pagano, a podiatrist practicing here in lovely Bucks and Montgomery Counties. I’d like to welcome you to my blog. My wife, Alayna, and I founded Barking Dogs Foot and Ankle Care in Plymouth Meeting, PA with a vision to improve the health of as many people we possibly can, one foot at a time. We wanted to bring a bit of freshness to the typical doctors office and make our patients feel comfortable and at home with our practice. Take a look at our site to see what you think, www.barkingdogspodiatry.com
In addition to Barking Dogs Foot and Ankle Care, I work as an associate in Souderton, PA and am on staff at Chestnut Hill and Grandview Hospitals. I also teach Pediatric Podiatry at Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in the Orthopedics department. These different locations and forums give me a wide variety of patients and a wide variety of problems.
I have a collegiate background in running. This was what originally focused my studies on Podiatry. I enjoy helping athletes continue their sport at the highest possible level. But over the years I’ve learned that Podiatry allows me to positively affect so many lives from babies to the elderly, from broken bones to diabetic care and beyond.
I’m going to use my blog as a forum to discuss the many problems people encounter with their feet and their ankles. I’ll give you my opinions on how to prevent and treat these issues. Its my hope that this blog will lead you down the path of great foot health.
Stay tuned for upcoming blog topics including: Summer Injuries (Disney Injuries and the ill fated flip-flop,) sports injuries, heel pain, bunions, hammertoes, shoe selection (one of my favorites), running, training, when is surgery necessary?, and when you should call a doctor?
This will be an educational forum but also entertaining. I promise you, the life of a podiatrist is more exciting than you might think. Now, a question for you… What is one of the most common causes of summer injuries? I’d love to know what you think.
