If you are looking for a Board Certified, well-qualified Podiatrist in a friendly, family oriented office setting, we welcome you to our practice.
THE CHERRYWOOD FOOTCARE GROUP led by owner/Podiatrist Dr. Joseph S. Burke, DPM, FACFAS, FACFO was recently voted "Best Podiatrist on Long Island" by the Long Island Press for the THIRD CONSECUTIVE YEAR. Cherrywood Footcare located in Bellmore, Nassau County has been a staple of the community for more than a quarter of a century. We recently moved a short distance from Wantagh to Bellmore to open a state of the art facility with the latest advancements in the field being incorporated into the practice.
Dr. Burke and the staff of Cherrywood Footcare welcome you to our web site at www.Cherrywoodfootcare.com, where you can see a video of Dr. Burke on Fox 5 "AMERICAN HEALTH FRONT". We offer you this opportunity to browse through our site to learn not only about our office but also to take advantage of the educational materials available on these pages. If you have specific questions, and would like to schedule an appointment, we invite you to call or e-mail our office.
Unlike some practices that employ "too many" Podiatrists which deliver sometimes discontinuous or detached care, Cherrywood Footcare has only two long term associates, Dr. Erica Papathomas and Dr. Peter Smith that are Board Certified/Eligible Podiatrists. Dr. Burke and his associates render the best quality medical and surgical care while maintaining a full service practice with personalized attention.
Cherrywood Footcare features cutting edge emerging technologies such as diagnostic ultrasound, digital radiography and the latest in laser technology for treatment of fungus nails (see attached video of Dr. Burke on Fox 5 "AMERICAN HEALTH FRONT").
Cherrywood Footcare is proud to be one of only a handful of podiatrists in the country now providing Laser therapy for fungus nails using the latest in laser technology. It is the most advanced laser system currently being used for fungus nail treatments. No other laser system has a thermometer to accurately control the temperature of the nail being treated. In addition, there is a automatic cryogen spray that cools the nail when it reaches the correct temperature. This in addition to a much wider laser beam which increases the effectiveness of the Laser more than other systems being used to treat this condition. The laser is FDA cleared for general podiatry and onychomycosis. Please call to see if your toenails qualify for this exciting new treatment. Cherrywood Footcare is affiliated with 2 local hospitals and has a state of the art operating room within the office. Cherrywood Footcare has expertise in both the biomechanical problems affecting the foot as well as expertise in correcting those problems surgically if they cannot be alleviated by conservative means.
The ultra modern office has in-treatment-room television, digital dictation as well as a spacious comfortable waiting area with patented podiatric digital educational programing for patient viewing. Our staff is friendly and courteous answering any questions patients may have. Our office prides itself in on-time performance while still accepting emergencies at all times.
Dr. Burke has advanced training in the treatment of many of these problems. He utilizes many of the most advanced techniques including SHOCKWAVE THERAPY as well as a minimally invasive surgical technique in which a tiny camera is inserted through a small incision commonly called ENDOSCOPIC PLANTAR FASCIOTOMY. Cherrywood Footcare is recognized as a CENTER OF EXCELLENCE for utilization of the OSSITRON SHOCKWAVE TREATMENTS.
The latest addition to our office is our MEDI-SPA. Patients have continually told us that they have gotten fungal infections of their nails and/or feet from non-sterile tools at their salons. We have all sterilized instrumentation as well as disposable whirlpool liners, specialized antifungal nail polishes in our medcially supervised spa for men and women alike. Please call for more information.
Please don't hesitate to call or e-mail our office for an appointment to discuss any further questions you may have. Our friendly staff will make you feel welcome and relaxed.
