As a foot specialist, Dr. Weinert understands how important the feet are. They are the foundation of the whole musculoskeletal system so when problem exists in the feet, a problem will also appear in the, back, hip, knee and even neck. For this reason Dr. Anthony chose to be a foot specialist. By practicing podiatry, Anthony hopes to educate his patient’s proper foot and ankle health, so that they can help people who are not only having foot problems, but also problems in the rest of the body.
Advanced technology and techniques to provide the most comprehensive treatment!
There are several advancements that occur on a weekly basis for podiatrists. We keep up on all the new state of the art advanced technology so that we can provide the best care for our patients.
Fluoroscopy – This unit allows Dr. Weinert to see your radiographs in a dynamic way. This means that he can view your foot as you apply weight. As forces are applied Dr. Weinert will view your bones and joints as they move. This is also used to teach the patients about their diagnosis and how their foot works.
Stent ProcedureÂ – We offer an effective stent procedure for talotarsal dislocation. This stent is placed between the ankle and foot to realign it. This serves similar to a custom orthotic and is a permanent fix. The procedure requires a minimal incision and takes only 15 to 20 minutes to implement. A lot of times, just a local anesthetic is required.
We are also able to perform a minimal incision bunion procedure that allows a quick recovery. Additionally we offer several effective nonsurgical heel treatments.
Commonly Treated Condtions

Ankle sprains are caused by an unnatural twisting or force on the ankle bones of the foot, often resulting in one or more ligaments on the outside of the ankle to be stretched or torn. If not properly treated, ankle sprains could develop into long-term problems. Read More...
