Professional Care • Great Courteous Staff • Valet Parking • Parking Lot • Office Care • Hospital Consults

Foxhall Podiatry Associates is celebrating its 20th year in Washington DC. M. Joel Morse, DPM and MA Khalid, DPM will continue to take care of your patients with our caring approach. We approach all patients from a conservative point of view as many foot problems can and should be handled conservatively before surgery is entertained. If surgery is needed, we are more than qualified to perform both in office and hospital-based surgery. We are both Boarded with the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. We are on staff at Washington Hospital Center, Sibley JHM, and Providence Hospital.

Dr. Morse has a special interest in dermatology of the foot and ankle – and continues to run the American Society of Foot and Ankle Dermatology as well as the Dermfoot seminar (www.dermfoot.com) Foot and ankle skin conditions do not look like they do elsewhere on the body. If you currently suffer from skin or nail issues of the foot or ankle,  we will gladly have you as a patient.

We are involved in cutting edge treatments including:

  • Regenerative medicine for sport injuries: Amniotic cell injection for tendon and ligaments
  • Regenerative medicine for diabetic and venous ulcers: Amniotic cell application for ulcers
  • Dermal fillers for plantar foot pain.
  • Shockwave Treatment for heel pain
  • Laser treatment for Fungal nails and Warts

We have a long history of diabetic foot care from CDFE – comprehensive diabetic foot evaluations- to complex diabetic foot surgery. We approach this with the help of vascular specialists, ID specialists, and pedorthotists. Please call our staff ( Jodi , Susan , Katie, Joyce, Yodi, and Lou) to schedule a consultation. We keep several appointments open everyday for emergent patients and doctor referred patients.

Sincerely,

– M. Joel Morse, DPM
