“I like being able to help people feel better and regain function.
Sometimes there are really simple solutions that make a big difference.”
"As a podiatrist, I take care of a wide spectrum of conditions involving the foot and ankle," explains Dr. Dernbach. "Within the foot and ankle there are numerous injuries and complex diseases that I am uniquely qualified to detect and manage to help improve your lifestyle."
Dr. Dernbach provides care to patients by providing both surgical and non-surgical treatments to her patients. "My main goal is to form a treatment plan that is unique to each person so they get the care that is right for them — whether that be surgical or non-surgical options."
There are numerous non-surgical treatment options available to patients for their foot and ankle aches and pains. Treatments can sometimes include medications, immobilization, orthotics, injections and physical therapy. Those patients needing surgery receive the most advanced surgical care to treat their specific condition.
