Podiatry or podiatric medicine is a branch of medicine devoted to the study of diagnosis, medical, and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower extremity.
A Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM), is a medical specialist who diagnoses and treats conditions affecting the foot, ankle, and structures of the leg. The training of podiatric physicians includes human anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, sociological and psychological perspectives, general medicine, surgery, and pharmacology.
Within the field of podiatry, U.S.-trained podiatric physicians rotate through major areas of medicine gaining exposure and practice to areas including but not limited to: surgery, sports medicine, biomechanics, geriatrics, internal medicine, diabetes, vascular, neurological, pediatrics, dermatological, orthopedics, or primary care.
Glenoaks Podiatry Group, featuring two long-time partners, Dr. Gulbenk Shirvanian and Dr. Nubar Ornekian, has been providing ankle and foot care and pain relief to Glendale, CA and surrounding communities for over 27 years. We use the latest laser equipment and are pioneering the way for minimally invasive surgery. When needed, minimally invasive surgery leaves smaller scars and accelerates recovery of patients. Our experienced doctors accurately find the cause of your foot and ankle pain and help you by using the most effective treatment options.
Drs. Shirvanian and Ornekian both attend continuing medical education courses to keep their training up to date. They both also teach minimally invasive surgery to other doctors. They have surgical privileges at a surgery center in nearby Studio City, CA.
