That’s right! We are the first podiatry office in the great state of Texas to receive national certification to perform on site surgery. This means that for a number of out-patient surgical procedures, that we will outline later, you need travel no farther than our office. The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, or JCAHO, is a nationally recognized organization holding healthcare offices and providers to the highest standard. We here at Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists are proud to have our Three Lakes SurgiCare join the approximately 19,000 other institutions and programs that are recognized as having the highest quality of care by this organization. While there are seven other JCAHO certified office-based surgical centers in the Austin area, we are the only one solely devoted to your feet.
If you have visited our site or the Austin Foot & Ankle injury blog before, you know that there are a variety of non-surgical treatments we can offer your ailing feet. There are, unfortunately, some problems that fail conservative care or are better resolved with a surgical solution. While there are still some procedures that may require an overnight hospitalization or best are done at a more advanced surgical site, this accreditation allows us to provide many minimally invasive procedures right here in our office. Soft tissue procedures such as neuroma or other soft tissue excisions, hammer digit corrections, partial fasciotomies, and PRP injections are just a few of the many procedures we can offer you. We always strive to offer you; our patients, the most convenient and cost effective means to heal your foot and ankle problems. With this accreditation, we are now able to offer you the best surgical care in the calm and comfort of our office. As we continue to expand our ability to care for your feet, make sure check back with us over the next few months to see what other new and exciting therapies and treatments we can bring your right from our Bee Cave Road location!
Until next time, keep those feet happy and healthy Austin!
