Our goal is restorative function, with reduced pain and shortened recovery time.


Our practice offers minimally invasive options for some surgeries. This option can dramatically decrease recovery time to get you back to your activities faster than traditional surgical approaches.

It is important to discuss any foot and ankle fracture with your surgeon. Although not all fractures require surgery, surgery may be recommended for your injury. Surgical treatment is often recommended to prevent long term deformity, pain and to decrease recovery time.

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method approved by the FDA. This office based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.

What a Podiatrist Does

A podiatrist is a foot doctor who can diagnose a variety of foot and ankle conditions and initiate effective treatments. The treatments might include foot or ankle surgery that repairs broken bones, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissue injuries.

Dr. Baca is a specialist in foot and ankle ailments. Dr. Baca and the rest of our professional staff at Total Foot and Ankle are the best source for relief from various conditions that commonly afflict feet and ankles. If you suffer a broken bone in your foot or ankle, we can treat it and make it better.

Conditions Commonly Treated

Your foot doctor at Total Foot and Ankle can provide effective treatment for a variety of foot and ankle conditions. Dr. Baca and our other professional foot and ankle specialists commonly diagnose and treat:

  • Bunions
  • Achilles pain
  • Nerve problems
  • Heel pain
  • Broken ankles and feet

We also can help with corns, warts, and bone spurs that could cause you to feel extreme discomfort. Ingrown toenails, arthritis, and foot conditions caused by diabetes are among the wide range of conditions for which patients at Total Foot and Ankle often find effective relief.

Some foot and ankle conditions require surgical solutions. Dr. Baca can perform arthroscopic surgery to repair damaged tendons and other soft tissue and help to speed up the recovery. Broken ankles or bones in the foot also might benefit from arthroscopic procedures that focus the surgical effort where it is needed the most.

EPAT Therapy Enhances Natural Healing

Among the many effective and innovative foot and ankle treatments at Total Foot and Ankle is the revolutionary Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) therapy. EPAT therapy uses pressure waves to enhance your body’s natural healing. It focuses the pressure waves on the afflicted areas in your ankle or foot. That increases the blood flow while helping to reduce the inflammation and swelling that make your foot or ankle especially painful.

If your foot or ankle is causing you pain and limiting your mobility, Dr. Baca and our professional staff at Total Foot and Ankle can help. Just call us toll-free or contact us online to schedule effective treatment that delivers real relief.

Diabetic Feet


Are you one of the millions of Americans managing diabetes? If so, Total Foot and Ankle wants to partner with you in managing the care of your feet.

Over time, diabetes can cause nerve damage that might impact your feet. The nerve damage, known as diabetic neuropathy, can result in a loss of feeling in the feet. With neuropathy present, even a small cut can go unnoticed and lead to serious complications.

Achilles Pain


Are you suffering from pain near the back of your heel? If so, you might be experiencing Achilles Tendonitis.

Achilles Tendonitis is typically caused by repetitive stress or strain on your Achilles Tendon. In most cases, Achilles Tendonitis can be treated with conservative non-surgical care. However, if your Achilles Tendon has ruptured, surgical repair might be recommended.

Heel Pain


Are you experiencing significant pain on the underside and back of your foot? If so, you might be experiencing heel pain.

Heel pain is most often caused by a condition called plantar fasciitis. Heel pain may also be caused by stress fractures, tendonitis, arthritis or nerve irritation. There are both conservative and minimally invasive treatment options that provide heel pain relief.
