Dr. Kazmer's practice model is to allow the body to heal naturally with conservative therapy and using surgical intervention only as the last treatment option. This philosophy is based on his extensive experience with all types of patients young and old. This method is conservative, yet innovative and effective for all foot & ankle disorders.
