Metro Footcare recently joined UR Medicine’s Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation and is now known as UR Medicine Podiatry.
The podiatry practice includes Michael Gruttadauria, Ayaz Habib, David High and Pearce Sloan.
“We are excited to become part of UR Medicine and what this means for patients, who will gain access to the orthopaedic services and surgical facilities offered by UR Medicine,” Sloan said.
UR Medicine Podiatry will continue to offer outpatient podiatric care at the same locations at Westfall Park Medical Center, 2225 S. Clinton Ave., Rochester; West Ridge Road Office, 2300 W. Ridge Road, Rochester; and Empire/Webster/Penfield Office, 2000 Empire Blvd., Webster. Its Brockport location has relocated to Strong West, 156 West Ave., Brockport.
“Podiatry services are a valuable addition to UR Medicine Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation’s complement of services,” said Adolph Flemister, chief of Orthopaedics’ foot and ankle division. “This will provide patients and their referring physicians with a single source for the most advanced and comprehensive range of services concerning the foot and ankle. Patients and referring physicians who have received support from Metro Footcare in the past will see new benefits as podiatry integrates with UR Medicine’s information technology enterprise. Access to UR Medicine’s electronic medical record system and MyChart, as well as appointment scheduling and patient billing systems, will deliver enhanced efficiencies and information sharing capabilities to streamline service and improve patients’ experience of care.”
UR Medicine Podiatry will offer specialty care in diagnosis and treatment of foot disorders and provide both nonsurgical and surgical care. Its podiatrists care for bone, joint, ligament, muscle and tendon problems of the foot, including diabetic conditions; fractures; gout; heel pain; treatment of bunions, calluses and warts; and fitting patients for orthotics.
UR Medicine’s orthopaedic foot and ankle division offers services such as ankle arthroscopy and ligament reconstruction, foot reconstruction and ankle replacement. UR Medicine’s foot and ankle specialists treat arthritic conditions, sports medicine injuries, fractures and dislocations of the foot and ankle, painful flatfoot and diabetic foot and ankle problems.
