North Stamford Podiatry Associates is a full service Podiatry Center, specializing in both the surgical and non-surgical treatment of the foot and ankle. Although both Dr. Henry S. Gross and Dr. Charles J. Gross participated in post-doctorate medical and surgical training programs, they realize that most patients are looking for alternatives to surgery. "The majority of foot problems can be treated successfully with a conservative approach that does not involve a knife" states Dr. Henry Gross. "We will first exhaust all possible non-surgical means before surgery will even be considered" adds Dr. Charles Gross. With this in mind, the office of North Stamford Podiatry Associates houses a variety of different types of medical equipment and instruments so that any and all treatment options are at their disposal.
We spend quality time with each patient in order to better understand your foot care needs, and, after presenting the options, to recommend the best course of treatment. We work closely with primary care physicians and other specialists to ensure the most effective treatment plan.
We provide services in the office, nursing home, long-term care facility and assisted living care facility, and when appropriate, in the home. We also provide in office surgery and digital x-rays on site.
We specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of the foot in adults and children.
