All in all, most of Dr. Goldstein’s patients do not require surgery.

Should you require surgery, you need a proven expert.

When surgery is the best course of action, you will be glad to know that Dr. Goldstein is the educated choice of many area physicians. Dr. Goldstein has the credentials referring physicians look for. He is a Diplomate of the prestigious American Board of Podiatric Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.

Additionally, as the Associate Residency Director at St. Barnabas Hospital he teaches podiatric surgery to the podiatrists of tomorrow.

Patients like Dr. Goldstein’s gentle state-of-the-art techniques that reduce pain and make surgery dramatically easier to undergo than most people expect. Many patients find themselves able to go back to work and continue their normal activities shortly after surgery.

And if you’re suffering from foot or ankle pain from a previous unsuccessful surgery, you should see Dr. Goldstein. He performs conventional and advanced corrective procedures for previously failed foot surgeries.

From the most routine foot problem to the most complex cases, both you and your doctor can trust Dr. Goldstein’s knowledgeable care.

Progressive care for bunions, hammertoes, neuromas and flatfeet.

If you suffer from any of these conditions, you may have been told that surgery is the best solution. But Dr. Goldstein takes a conservative approach to treatment, and he can often alleviate painful foot problems without surgery.

When surgery is the best option for lasting relief, it is usually performed by Dr. Goldstein at an outpatient surgery center. An anesthesiologist is always on hand to make sure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.

Bunions – If conservative, nonsurgical measures don’t bring relief from your bunion pain, Dr. Goldstein may correct the deformity with a “bunionectomy” procedure, in which he surgically realigns the bone, ligaments and tendons to restore your big toe to its proper position.

Hammertoes – Hammertoe is a term used to describe a crooked, deviated or contracted toe. Dr. Goldstein can treat hammertoes with protective foot pads or surgery, if needed.

Neuromas – Neuromas are caused by the thickening of the outer coating of a foot nerve. Dr. Goldstein may recommend custom orthotic shoe inserts, injection therapy or shoe style/size. If symptoms become severe, surgical removal of the neuroma can provide lasting relief.

Flatfeet – If your foot’s arch loses its strength, the foot’s framework begins to collapse, causing the foot to flatten. Dr. Goldstein may prescribe special custom orthotic shoe inserts, physical therapy and medication to relieve pain and inflammation.
Surgery may be considered in severe cases.
