- Published: November 28, 2018
The Family Health Clinic of Barnes-Kasson Hospital is pleased to announce the return of Podiatrist, Dr. Patrick MacConnell to its provider staff. He works with patients of all ages who suffer from various lower extremity problems, specifically below the knees. Many patients develop lower extremity issues caused by circulatory problems or neuropathy issues. Some suffer from problems associated with deformities or partial amputations. Whether it’s simpler things like ingrown toenails or more complex issues such as foot problems caused by diabetes, Dr. MacConnell treats a wide variety of foot and ankle problems.
Dr. MacConnell has been a great addition to the Family Health Clinic provider staff. With his help the Family Health Clinic is now able to offer a new diabetic shoe program. This program allows some diabetic patients to qualify for a free pair of shoes that prevent and address foot problems associated with diabetes. Many diabetic foot problems originate due to the loss of sensation or decreased ability to feel pressure in the feet. The doctor uses an IPad with a special optical scanner to scan the foot and create a shoe that ensures a perfect fit for each patient.
