Company Philosophy

"I'll spend as much time with a patient as necessary to ensure I've addressed all their concerns and we both understand our treatment goals. I never sacrifice quality care to fit more patients into my schedule, which often results in spending more time with patients than was allotted. Every patient receives exactly the same consideration and time as the one before them."

Comparative Summary

Podiatrists are always looking for ways to differentiate themselves from their competition, and those that have earned the prestigious Diamond Certified award are already several steps ahead. In addition to its Diamond Certified status, Cupertino Podiatry Inc. sets itself apart by focusing on providing long-term relief that not only helps patients’ feet and ankles, but also positively affects their lifestyles. “I’m one of the most comprehensively trained podiatrists in the Bay Area, but I also have an in-depth knowledge of biomechanics, which I use to closely evaluate my patients and determine if non-surgical treatments would be best for their specific situations,” says owner Dr. Michael Cornelison. “Instead of offering short-term relief, I address and treat the underlying cause of the problem.”

Cupertino Podiatry has been performing advanced reconstructive foot surgery and providing preventive foot care for Santa Clara County patients since 2003. The practice treats a wide range of foot conditions, including Achilles tendonitis, bunions, heel spurs, arch strains and more. Dr. Cornelison can also create specialized injury treatment programs for athletes who need to recover quickly.

Unlike podiatrists that take a generalized approach to diagnosing and treating foot and ankle problems, Cupertino Podiatry customizes its treatment plans for each patient according to their specific foot and ankle ailments–a comprehensive approach that’s resulted in a loyal clientele base that’s eager to refer the practice to others. “We depend on referrals, so it’s important to ensure each patient has a positive experience, both in terms of their treatment/therapy and their interaction with our staff,” says Dr. Cornelison. “By being upfront with our patients and asking them for their honest opinions, we’re able to maintain a consistently high level of quality.”

To further differentiate his practice from its competition, Dr. Cornelison emphasizes the importance of staying up-to-date on the latest medical technology and foot/ankle care standards. “From a professional standpoint, continuous medical and specialty education is very important,” he explains. “Even though I’m involved with many professional associations and recognized as an expert in my field, I still make sure to complete as much continuing education as possible. Staying on top of industry changes allows me to offer my patients the best possible care.”

Industry Info

When your feet hurt or develop problems, it’s your body’s way of sending you a message about your lifestyle choices. “People are conditioned to expect their feet to hurt at the end of a long day, and that’s certainly normal, but if it’s a recurring problem that affects your ability to engage in normal activities or increase your activity level, you should definitely be evaluated by a podiatrist,” says Dr. Michael Cornelison, owner of Cupertino Podiatry Inc. To determine if you have a foot problem and learn ways to effectively deal with it, consider the following tips:

Plantar fasciitis (heel pain)
Perhaps the most common foot problem, plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of a band of tissue that helps support the arch of the foot. It’s caused by a number of factors, including weight gain, worn-out shoes, walking barefoot, increasing exercise and walking on hard surfaces without proper support. “People typically associate plantar fasciitis with having a flat foot, but it actually affects people with both low and high arches,” says Dr. Cornelison. To avoid developing heel pain, stretch your feet every day and wear supportive shoes that don’t put undue stress on the ball of your foot. A podiatrist can also conduct an examination and determine if medications or orthotics are necessary.

Ingrown toenails
One of the most common non-skeletal foot problems, ingrown toenails can be caused by improper trimming, tight-fitting shoes, poor foot structure, heredity or general trauma. Visit a podiatrist at the first sign of a problem to determine which treatments may be necessary. Avoid tight-fitting shoes and socks, inspect your toenails daily, and trim nails straight across (no round edges).

Plantar warts Plantar warts occur on the bottom of the feet. They’re most commonly found on young children, although middle-aged and older people can get them as well. Treatments for these warts vary quite a bit, as what works for one patient may not work for another. “Some people try to get rid of plantar warts with over-the-counter products and treatments, but those are often ineffective,” says Dr. Cornelison. “It takes a long time to treat a wart, and there are many things you have to do to prepare your foot for treatment.” To help prevent plantar warts from occurring on your feet, practice good foot hygiene (keep them clean and dry), change your shoes regularly, and protect your feet from skin injuries like scratches and abrasions.

Fungal nail
Trauma or infection to a toenail can make it thick, discolored, loose or deformed. This is often caused by the spread of athlete’s foot, but it can also be an indication of conditions such as diabetes or arthritis. Consult a podiatrist and ask for a medication or treatment that will safely and effectively treat the problem.

Tendinitis
Foot tendinitis is caused by overuse, usually due to an increase in physical activity. It can also be caused by wearing worn-out or improperly fitted shoes. Rest and ice provide the best relief, but if the pain persists, you should look into over-the-counter supports and prescription anti-inflammation medications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can you cure my foot problem?

A: That depends on your particular problem. Even if we find a problem that isn’t necessarily curable, we can manage your discomfort so it doesn’t affect your daily activity. And it’s not just a matter of prescribing medication to make you feel better—we’ll literally change how your foot and ankle function so they behave normally for extended periods of time. We’ll work closely with you and come up with a plan that fits your particular situation.

Q: What should I expect from my initial visit?

A: Your initial visit will include a complete history and physical examination, with specific attention paid to your individual foot or ankle problem. We may do a brief evaluation to learn more about the way you walk and how it affects your problem. We’ll also provide you with information about your problem and discuss possible treatment alternatives.

Q: What paperwork should I bring to my appointment?

A: Please bring your medical and patient registration forms, insurance card, referral (if required by your insurance company) and workers’ compensation authorization (if necessary).

Q: Are your physicians well-trained?

A: All our physicians have received conventional medical training plus special training on the foot, ankle and lower leg. In addition to being well-trained in foot and ankle surgery, they’re experts in delivering care for complex foot disorders suffered by diabetic patients and common foot problems such as bunions, hammertoes, heel spurs, ingrown toenails, plantar fasciitis (heel pain) and shin splints.

Q: How much will my foot procedure cost?

A: Generally, our patients come to us because they’ve confirmed we’re an accepted provider under their insurance policies. Even so, we always work within each patient’s insurance coverage to minimize their out-of-pocket expenses without sacrificing the quality of care we provide.

Q: Do you provide alternatives to foot surgery?

A: Yes. We’ll even explain all your options upfront and do a side-by-side comparison of therapy and surgery so you can determine what course of action you’d like to take.

Q: What’s your financial policy?

A: Payment is expected in full at the time of service, unless other arrangements are made.
