Practice

Orthotics are custom made foot supports designed to support and balance the foot. They may be prescribed to treat a number of foot problems related to excessive rolling in and collapsing of the foot during walking and standing. Orthotics are fabricated from precise casts of the feet, which undergo numerous modifications and adjustments depending on the foot type. They are removable devices functioning in a variety of shoes.

During his clinical training Dr. Bell became very interested in the biomechanics of the foot, and spent many hours in the lab learning to fabricate orthotic devices. Since opening his practice in 1983, he has personally made hundreds of orthotics in his own on site lab.

Foot Care

Many elderly or diabetic patients are in need of routine foot care. Being seen on a regular basis keeps them more comfortable and allows the doctor to identify any potential problems. Patients with circulatory problems, fungal toenails, diabetes, or painful corns and calluses should be seen every 2 to 3 months.

Surgery

Dr. Bell operates at both the Logan Regional Hospital and the Cache Valley Specialty Hospital. Many minor procedures can be be performed at his office under local anesthisia. Dr. Bell is Board Certified by the American Board of Podiatric Orthopedics and Primary Podiatric Medicine.
