Podiatrists specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions of the foot, ankle and related structures of the leg. They may also perform surgery.
According to some orthopedic surgeons, however, some podiatrists may overstep their bounds. They may perform complex surgeries involving bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves for which they have not been medically trained.
In severe cases, individuals have had their lower legs amputated. Still others are now bound to a wheelchair because of unsuccessful surgeries.
Complaints of medical malpractice also include infection, persistent pain and misdiagnosis. All of these can lead to debilitating consequences.
If you or a loved one has suffered complications following surgeries or procedures that have made your condition worse rather than better, you may have cause for action.

The loss of my husband Albert in 2009 was magnitudes of grief and tragedy. Gone was the love of my life. But also gone was the adored grandfather of a mentally and physically disabled child who had lost her own father -- Albert's and my son -- just two years before. If not for Weitz & Luxenberg, what's left of my family would never have had the opportunity to see justice done. I really believe that.
