The doctors at ‘Foot & Ankle Specialists of the Mid-Atlantic’ treat all disorders of the foot and ankle, using modern, effective technology.
From simple problems such as trouble with the skin or nails to the most complex trauma or reconstruction, FASMA treats you, using comprehensive, up-to-date methods and equipment.
Some examples are ultrasound, orthotic scanning, pulsed dye laser, extra-corporeal shockwave therapy, dehydrated alcohol injections, etc.

In the gait lab, the FScan computer software is teamed with four closed-circuit TV cameras, to provide full-body analysis of your gait from various angles. Paper-thin sensors are placed in the shoes you wear. As you walk, reactive forces between your foot and the shoe are recorded, allowing the evaluation of alignment and biomechanical position.
Customizing the fit of the shoe can often solve the foot problem. Orthopedic shoe modification by trained staff can aid in providing you with the help you need. It is a fact that the position of bones in the feet actually changes as we age. Moreover, research shows that many back problems result from foot imbalance or from one leg being longer than the other. Something as simple as a lift in or on the shoe can be an effective solution.
The first clinically proven laser device for the temporary increase of clear nail in patients with onychomycosis, or nail fungus.
Stop suffering the pain and embarrassment of unsightly nail fungus. PinPointe™ FootLaser™ is the easy and convenient treatment that helps to turn your discolored or disfigured nails into clearer, healthier-looking nails.
Safe and effective, this in-office treatment is pain-free, has no harmful side-effects, and, typically, takes only about 30 minutes to complete.
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a serious circulatory condition where clogged or narrowed arteries cause poor circulation to the arms, legs, brain or kidneys. It occurs most often in the lower extremities, causing decreased blood flow to the legs and feet. Just like build-up in the heart, clogged arteries in the lower extremities can cause a stroke or a heart attack. Eight to twelve million Americans have PAD and, left untreated, it can be fatal.
Fortunately, today there is a non-invasive technology that can determine the presence of PAD. PAD-net™ is a PAD test that can be completed in 15 to 20 minutes during a regular office visit.
For patients with increased risk factors, including those of 65 years of age or older with a history of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or smoking, being informed about this arterial disease is essential. Leg pain and discoloration of the toes or feet are possible symptoms of PAD. It is important to note, however, that many people with PAD do not experience any symptoms. Testing can help to determine whether you have PAD, and whether medical or surgical treatment is necessary.
FASMA doctors are well trained and highly skilled in pediatric foot and ankle surgery.
There are several types of children’s foot and ankle problems, both congenital and acquired, that FASMA doctors are highly qualified to diagnose and treat.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which an examination and, sometimes, treatment of damage to the interior of a joint is performed, using an arthroscope, a type of endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision.
Arthroscopic procedures can be performed either to evaluate or to treat many orthopedic conditions, including torn floating cartilage, torn surface cartilage, ACL reconstruction, and to trim damaged cartilage.
The surgical instruments used are smaller than traditional instruments. Surgeons view the joint area on a video monitor, and can diagnose and repair torn joint tissue, such as ligaments and menisci or cartilage.
For most people, cuts and scratches heal within days or weeks, but for those whose natural healing process is hampered, such as in the case of diabetes, a simple sore can become a complex medical problem, requiring specialized care.
'Foot & Ankle Specialists of the Mid-Atlantic' specialize in the care of lower extremity wounds. Using state-of-the-art wound care therapies, and surgery when necessary, FASMA doctors can help you to heal your wound.
Ultrasound imaging allows FASMA doctors to confirm a diagnosis in real time, and therefore prescribe a treatment plan faster than by traditional methods.
Ultrasound diagnostic imaging can be used in the diagnosis of soft tissue problems, such as plantar fasciitis, soft tissue masses, foreign bodies, and neuromas, to name a few common conditions. Ultrasound can also be used to guide injections.
We employ plastic surgical techniques to correct unsightly foot deformities, such as bunions and hammer-toes. In addition, FASMA doctors are adept at revising unsightly scars caused by previous surgery.
Most importantly, feet should be functional and pain-free. 'Foot & Ankle Specialists of the Mid-Atlantic' truly understand patients' desire for a healthy balance between form and function. Feet can be beautiful, and FASMA doctors help patients to achieve their goals.
The Baltimore office is affiliated with Chesapeake Research Group LLC. Dr. Gottlieb was the founder of this clinical trial site. They perform clinical trials, helping pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers to develop the latest medications and devices.
FASMA doctors consult with CRG, and assist in the completion of these clinical trials.
