Gout of the Foot and Ankle
Dr. Jason Knox of Neuhaus Foot and Ankle, a podiatry practice with four locations in Middle Tennessee: Smyrna, Brentwood, Lebanon, and Hermitage, explains how gout, or gouty arthritis, is diagnosed and what forms of treatment are available for the painful condition. If you are experiencing intense pain, redness, or swelling of the foot, you may be diagnosed with gout. Gout most often occurs in the big toe joint. It is important to treat gout, so if you suspect you have the condition, make an appointment with your local podiatrist or with us (615) 220-8788 or at our toll-free number 888-713-0906.
