Biopsy

A biopsy is the removal and microscopic examination of a small sample of soft tissue to diagnose issues with the tissue and determine the best treatment. The Best Foot Forward providers can perform biopsies to identify:

  • Freckles, moles, or spots
  • Fungal or bacterial infections
  • Rashes
  • Lesions
  • Toenail conditions
  • Wart-like growths
  • Ganglion cysts, limpoas, or fibromas

Biopsy results usually take several days.

Compression Stockings

Compression stockings are worn to improve blood flow in the legs. They gently squeeze your legs to move blood up from your lower leg which helps prevent swelling, aching or a heavy feeling, and prevents blood clots. These are often prescribed after surgery but also if you have varicose veins or spider veins. We can advise you on what kind of compression stockings are right for you.

Treating a problem is only half the solution. Preventing future problems is the other half.
