Whether you’re kicking your feet up or putting them to the pavement, Midwest Orthopaedic Center is here to provide the support you need to move without pain.

Here, your podiatrist, Dr. El Chami, specializes in comprehensive foot care –– treating internal and external conditions from your ankles to your toes. Dr. El Chami works closely with the foot and ankle surgeon, Dr. D’Souza, to coordinate a treatment plan that has you standing comfortably and moving about at your own speed.

Whether you need a bunionectomy, laser treatment for toenail fungus or injections to combat pain, your podiatrist is on-hand to give you a comprehensive assessment –– at your home for orthopaedics.

    • Arthritis and other degenerative conditions
    • Bunions

If your foot problems require deeper care, your podiatrist will recommend surgery at Midwest Orthopaedic Hospital at UnityPoint Health – Proctor. In our state-of-the-art facility, your board-certified surgeon has the latest tools and technologies available to reduce pain and restore mobility.

Following your surgery, your podiatrist may recommend physical therapy at Midwest Orthopaedic Center, where our licensed therapists guide you through a routine of stretches and exercises with a variety of treatments –– including massage, electrotherapy and aquatic therapy –– to put you on a road to wellness.
