Bunions can be uncomfortable and look unsightly, which is why so many of our patients choose to visit our podiatry office to undergo a bunion removal surgery.
As a foot surgeon, we can provide you with treatment options for a fractured foot, foot pain, ankle sprains, ankle instability, and more. We also treat patients suffering from arthritis and the general aches and pains associated with age.
If you have strained your plantar fasciitis, the ligament connecting your heel to your toes, schedule an appointment today. Since this is what provides your arch support, straining it can cause a great deal of inflammation, irritation and pain.
Dr. Karson Howard, DPM was born here in Pocatello on a summer’s night. He grew up just outside of town with random chores like feeding the cows and mowing the lawn. Growing up was a fun time filled with many Saturdays at Pebble Creek in the winter and many summer days out on the lake. He took classical guitar lessons from 9th-12th grade, and still continues to love playing music.
In 2000, Karson graduated as the first class of Century High School. He then left that summer for Honduras to serve as a missionary for the LDS church. When he returned, he began his undergraduate training at ISU. There his wife fell in love with him, watching his crazy good racquetball skills. So he decided to fall in love with her as well. After only a few months of being married they moved together to California where he attended the California School of Podiatric Medicine for four years.
After he graduated, Dr Howard moved to Chicago, IL for his surgical residency at Mt Sinai Medical Center, a level I trauma center. He now has been practicing with his father since 2011 and joined with his brother in law Adam Matthews, DPM in 2012. He enjoys his time at home with his small young family. Karson currently serves as Vice President for the Idaho Podiatric Medical Association. Dr. Karson Howard is Board Certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle surgery.
