Dr. Andrew Glass.
Located on 42nd Street in Midtown East, Dr. Glass’ convenient office provides the utmost in podiatric care. Those who suffer from bunions in particular will receive groundbreaking treatment. Rather than an expensive, invasive surgery that will leave you recuperating for weeks, Dr. Glass treats bunions with a minimally invasive surgery that can get you back to work in no time.
As shared in this report on CBS News, Dr. Glass’ bunion surgery uses a rare technique of shaving down the protruding bone, rather than breaking bones or using pins as in traditional bunion surgery. Dr. Glass makes two tiny incisions for the surgery that require just one stitch each, in addition to local anesthetic to numb the foot. Patients can walk the day of their procedure and need just a few days to recover. Soon, they’re feeling great and wearing their favorite shoes again.
In addition to bunions, Dr. Glass also treats a variety of foot and ankle problems. He prescribes a range of treatments that might be as simple as using orthotic inserts in your shoes or changing the way you walk to prevent further damage to the foot. The NY Podiatric website lists conditions like hammer toes, heel pain, ingrown toenails, sports injuries, and corns as some of the common ailments treated by Dr. Glass. Whatever is troubling you, Dr. Glass brings over 15 years of experience to his practice and will ensure you’re back to walking like a New Yorker soon!
