Welcome to The Foot and Ankle Center, home of Dr. Frank Killian, DPM and Dr. Stacey Paukovitz, DPM. We have proudly providing podiatric care for Ocean and Mercer counties since 1999. We are your one and only stop for all of your foot and ankle needs, regardless of age or issues.
At The Foot & Ankle Center, our goal is to provide compassionate, convenient care for all problems associated to the foot and ankle. We are board certified in foot surgery, however, we continue to adhere to the tenants of our medical school training "Premium non nocere" - first do no harm. We desire help patients with their foot and ankle problems by treating conservatively first and only recommend surgery as a final alternative when all else has failed. We strive to educate our patients to understand the injury or problem they have and the options that they have for treatment. Helping patients to understand their problems and options for care leads to better patient compliance, increased physician confidence and improved outcomes which allow for long term patient relationships and satisfaction.
We believe no one should have to live with foot and ankle pain. Let our Board Certified Doctors and expertly trained staff help you achieve a new level of comfort in our clean, comfortable offices. We are thoroughly trained in all aspects of podiatric care. We offer the most up to date treatment for all foot and ankle problems. We treat infants, children, teens, adults, and elderly.
