Dr. Pedersen provides both surgical and non-surgical care of the skin, tendons, ligaments, joints and bones in the feet and ankles. He also specializes in providing expert wound care, including diabetic limb-saving procedures.

No matter your age, count on Dr. Pedersen to treat conditions such as:

To enhance the care he provides, Dr. Pedersen enjoys learning more about each patient. “I like getting to know my patients because we don’t just treat feet. We treat the whole person,” he says.
