If being on your feet is more painful than usual, trust Brandon Tucker, DPM, a podiatrist at Avera Orthopedics in Marshall, MN, for your care.
A Foundation of Health for Your Lower Extremities
As a physician of podiatry, Dr. Tucker enjoys the hands-on nature of caring for the body part often overlooked by people — their feet and ankles.
When we continually ignore the “foundation” of our body, health problems may very well arise. Dr.Tucker has a special interest in treating:
- Sports injuries
- Deformity correction
- Bunions, hammertoes, ingrown toenails
- Diabetic foot conditions
- Foot, heel or ankle pain
Each person’s situation is unique. Some require physical therapy, injections, medications or just rest to achieve healing and better function. “The best part of my work is when people come into my office for a follow-up appointment and they feel much better than they did and their pain is gone.”
Dr. Tucker believes a positive clinical environment is just the start of treating the patient. “I’m a natural smiler who likes to laugh, which helps folks to relax during their appointment.”
In his free time, Dr. Tucker enjoys taking his dog — a Boston terrier named Piper — on hikes, fixing computers and exploring glasswork.
