Award-Winning Podiatry Care In Bethesda, MD & Springfield, VA

Having cutting-edge equipment and technology in both of our Bethesda, MD and Springfield, VA podiatry offices explains why our practice enjoys such a high success rate and an unsurpassed reputation in the area. Our leading technologies allow us to correctly diagnose and treat even very rare foot and ankle problems. Additionally, these technologies fulfill healthcare’s most recent demand – applying non or minimally invasive procedures to get our patients up and running fast.

If you would like to put an end to foot or ankle pain with the least amount of trauma and down time, we suggest giving one of our offices a call at 301.656.6055 (Bethesda) or 703-451-2977 (Springfield). Feel free to also reach out to our offices using the following contact form and one of our team members will reach back out to you shortly.

Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

Shockwave Therapy For Treatment of Achilles Tendinitis & Plantar FasciitisWe use Shockwave Therapy as a non-invasive treatment for chronic Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis. You can expect the treatment to last fewer than 10 minutes and not require any anesthesia. Through experience and research, we have determined that 80% of the time, Shockwave provides an effective solution that allows most patients to easily work around their normal schedule and daily activities.



MLS Laser Therapy

Our experienced team at The Podiatry Center is thrilled to be able to offer state-of-the-art MLS Laser Therapy to our patients. MLS (multi-wave locked system) Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment that uses focused light to treat a wide range of foot and ankle conditions. This revolutionary treatment allows deeper penetration without heat, incisions, or negative side effects. You will feel little to no sensation during this pain-free treatment. In fact, some people even fall asleep during their treatment sessions!

Since it was cleared by the FDA in 2009, MLS Laser Therapy has been helping patients by:

  1. Relieving Pain
  2. Reducing Inflammation
  3. Promoting wound healing and soft tissue repair

Swift Microwave Therapy

If you suffer from plantar warts and are looking for relief, Dr. Ross and Dr. Matthews at The Podiatry Center have you covered!

Swift is a cutting-edge, FDA-approved technology that is highly effective for removing plantar warts. Plantar warts form on the heels or balls of your feet and are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). These types of warts grow into the foot, making them difficult to treat from the surface.

Swift addresses this by delivering low-dose microwave energy through a probe that targets the root of the problem — the underlying HPV virus. By stimulating a natural immune response in the body, the microwave energy prompts the immune system to attack the HPV virus, therefore eliminating the wart. We like to say that we’re addressing the root cause; NOT the symptoms.

Is Swift Painful?

There is minor discomfort associated with this treatment. Pain varies between patients, but most people feel some discomfort for 2-3 seconds as tissue temperatures are elevated. No anesthesia is needed and any pain immediately subsides after the probe is removed. There is very little post-procedural pain and no need for at-home care!

When you should come to see us!

It’s important to visit The Podiatry Center if you suspect or feel that you have a plantar wart and are seeking removal. The longer you wait to seek treatment, the more likely the wart is to persist.

Here are some common symptoms to look out for:

  • You may get the feeling of “painful pebbles” in your shoes.
  • You may experience pain when you compress the sides of the wart.
  • You may see a circular flat spot on the skin with a depressed area in the middle.
  • They may appear “yellowed” with a crust; small black dots can be an easy give away.
  • The lesion on your foot is painful, bleeding, or has changed color.
  • Treatments you have tried do not work, and the wart reoccurs or multiplies.
  • Discomfort that prevents you from doing regular activities.
  • Poor sensation in your feet.
  • You are unsure if the lesion is a wart.




Diagnostic Ultrasound


Diagnostic Ultrasound For Treatment Of Achilles Tendinitis, Plantar Fasciitis, Tumors and Torn TendonsMany people know about Diagnostic Ultrasound because OB/GYN physicians use it with their expectant patients on a daily basis. We use it to properly diagnose foot conditions and identify exactly where the problem is – eliminating trial and error treatment and continued pain for the patient. With our Diagnostic Ultrasound machine, we can locate and begin to effectively treat soft tissue conditions like Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, tumors, foreign bodies, torn tendons, and stress fractures. It also helps us guide injections of cortisone to the precise place that is in pain due to inflammation. You’ll also find insurance companies love it, as it only costs about one tenth the amount of the typical MRI.


Digital X-Rays


Digital X-Rays For Foot & Ankle PainDigital radiology has revolutionized podiatric care over the past decade. Digital x-rays allow Dr. Ross to take and magnify an image of your foot with crystal clear details that enable him to tell stress fractures apart from other abnormalities. It ensures a proper diagnosis of painful foot and ankle conditions with the ability to view this immediately in the office. He also uses digital x-rays to monitor your foot’s structure on an ongoing basis in order to evaluate and treat any chronic foot conditions. In some cases, Dr. Ross may use digital x-rays to guide him during surgical procedures and to share results with other doctors, as you wish.


Stem Cell Therapy


Stem Cell Therapy For Foot & Ankle PainDo you know that we can use stem cells from your body to help cure many classic foot and ankle injuries? In stem cell therapy we take stem cells from your bone marrow and use them to speed up the natural healing process of damaged joints, ligaments, muscles and/or tendons. Top athletes and trainers prefer this noninvasive treatment because it decreases foot and ankle injury recovery time.

If you’re tired of suffering from Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, or other chronic foot injuries, we can use stem cell therapy to promote healing in the area that’s damaged. The simple injections we use provide you with a focused flow of concentrated stem cells that naturally and gently enhance the healing process.
