Expert Care for Feet and Ankles

For expertise and compassion when it comes to treating foot and ankle conditions, look to Terence Pedersen, DPM, a podiatrist and board-certified foot surgeon at Avera Medical Group Podiatry in Yankton, SD.

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:

  • Arthritis
  • Broken bones
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Hammertoes
  • Heel pain
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Ruptured tendons and ligaments
  • Sprains
  • Tendinitis
  • Warts
  • Wound care, including diabetic limb-saving procedures

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.

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Pedersen likes to spend time with his family and enjoy the outdoors together with activities such as golfing, biking, camping, fishing and hunting. He stays active by completing one in-line skating marathon each year and coaching his children’s sports teams, mostly hockey.
