Foot and Ankle

Foot and ankle problems are extremely common due to the complex network of bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments found within these vital body parts. If any of these structures becomes weakened from injury, chronic overuse, deformity, or disease, it’s important to see a qualified foot and ankle specialist to evaluate and treat the condition.

Dr. Bowen

Dr. Michael Bowen is a fellowship-trained podiatric surgeon who specializes in injuries and conditions of the foot and ankle. He offers a comprehensive approach to prevention, treatment and management of foot and ankle problems. This includes minimally invasive options such as custom-made orthotics, bracing, and physical therapy, as well as highly complex surgical procedures, including minimally invasive techniques. His goal in every case is to help patients get back to the life they want – from doing everyday activities without pain to participating in sports and exercise.

Dr. Bowen earned his degree in podiatric medicine from Kent State College of Podiatric Medicine in Ohio. Treatment for foot and ankle conditions is decided on a case-by-case basis and depends on how much pain a patient is in, the source of that pain, and how their foot or ankle is functioning. Nonsurgical treatments may include lifestyle modifications, injections, medication, orthotics, physical therapy, and splinting.
