About Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists

Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists provides innovative, comprehensive foot and ankle care at offices in Elgin, Schaumburg, Huntley, and the Montclare neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. A team of board-certified podiatrists works directly with patients to maintain, improve, and restore their foot and ankle health.

Dedication to state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and technology is one of the practice’s highlights. Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists is home to in-office diagnostic X-rays and ultrasound technology to treat soft tissue conditions, like plantar fasciitis and other foot injuries. Advanced equipment allows the podiatrists to provide the best care in a relaxing environment.

At Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists, the podiatrists emphasize the importance of preventive care to help their patients avoid injuries and degenerative conditions, such as heel pain, arthritis, and infections, like athlete’s foot. 

The practice also specializes in diabetic foot care. Proper foot care for those with diabetic feet is critical to prevent complications, such as nonhealing wounds and chronic pain. Custom-made orthotics can help diabetics and others who need additional support in their footwear.

While the board-certified podiatrists practice a conservative, integrative approach to foot and ankle care, they offer numerous arthroscopic procedures for patients who need surgical intervention. Bunion surgery, Achilles tendon repair, and ankle joint replacement are just a few types of ankle and foot surgery the practice offers.

Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists has multiple locations open six days a week for patient convenience. Call the nearest location or schedule an appointment online today to learn more.

Dr Halihan was able to see me on short notice after I had stepped on a sea urchin while on vacation in Fiji. I had just returned home after several long flights. I knew the in house doctor at the resort was only able to remove a couple of the 13 sea urchin spines in my foot and my foot felt very tender as a result. Dr Halihan was able to quickly and painlessly remove 11 small pieces of sea urchin spine from my foot. He also prescribed two antibacterial ointments to assist in the healing. I appreciate the fast and professional treatment for my unusual problem. Thank you Dr Halihan!
