About Performance Foot & Ankle Specialists, LLC

Performance Foot & Ankle Specialists, LLC, provides comprehensive podiatry care for children and adults in and around Waterbury and Newtown, Connecticut. Joel Segalman, DPM, FACFAS, FACFAO, and Stephen Lazaroff, DPM, FACFAS, have more than 33 years of experience treating a wide range of foot and ankle conditions.

The skilled providers use on-site X-rays, diagnostic Ultrasound, and other diagnostic technologies to assess painful foot conditions like fractures, bunions, and hammertoes. Diagnostic testing is also available for ankle issues like arthritis, tumors, and stress fractures and conditions that cause heel pain, including heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, and Achilles tendon injuries.

In addition to treating painful foot and ankle disorders, Performance Foot & Ankle Specialists, LLC, offers foot care services to treat and prevent athlete’s foot, warts, neuroma, and gout. The physicians also provide wound care services, including Epifix® dehydrated human amnion and chorion membrane allograft, to ensure diabetic ulcers and other open wounds heal fully.

Comprehensive diagnostic testing and treatment services are available for sports injuries. The physicians work with athletes at all levels, including professional athletic teams and celebrities, to treat chronic pain and common foot and ankle disorders that develop from overuse.

Performance Foot & Ankle Specialists, LLC, focuses on treating foot and ankle injuries and disorders with conservative therapies like medications, ultrasound therapy, K-Laser therapy, cortisone injections, and custom orthotics. The experienced surgeons also have extensive experience using advanced laser therapy to treat fungal toenails.

To treat fractures, bunions, and bone or soft tissue injuries, including ingrown toenails, the surgeons offer minimally invasive foot surgery. They perform minor procedures in-office and more complex surgeries at local hospitals.
