Modern Foot & Ankle Brings High-Tech, High-Quality Healthcare to Largo
Wednesday January 19, 2022
Modern Foot & Ankle opens its sixth clinic — and first in Pinellas County – on Friday. The Central Florida podiatric group has selected Kyle Haverstrom, DPM, as the podiatrist for the new Largo, Florida, location.
“I wanted to join Modern Foot & Ankle because it’s at the forefront of technology when it comes to foot and ankle care and becoming a well-known force in Tampa and Orlando,” said Dr. Haverstrom. “The technology-based approach is appealing to me because giving patients the most state-of-the-art treatments for all issues, big and small, is important.”
Underscoring the necessity of creating personalized experiences, Dr. Haverstrom also pointed to the group’s facilitation of “quick results, up-to-date treatments, and same-day appointments” as vital to achieving optimal outcomes.
“It allows patients to get better faster,” he added.
Dr. Haverstrom came to the Largo and Clearwater area by way of Family Foot Health Center in Rogers, Arkansas, where he honed his surgical skills. He noted that his postgraduate training at Jefferson Health in Philadelphia, which focused on sports medicine, arthroscopy, pediatrics, and trauma, prioritized implementing surgical advances.
“I enjoy the surgical aspect of the specialty,” said Dr. Haverstrom, “but I will try all conservative therapies before going into the operating room.”
The brand-new office, located on the third floor of the professional center at 11200 Seminole Blvd., in Largo, houses digital X-ray and ultrasound technologies. The space has been under renovation since last August to bring it into line with Modern Foot & Ankle’s signature contemporary look.
But it’s the proximity to surf and sand that speaks to the podiatrist’s background.
“The patients in this area are great! They are very active, and I love being able to help them get back on their feet to enjoy the sun, beach, and outdoors,” explained Dr. Haverstrom. “Coming from a sports family and growing up playing hockey, I had many foot and ankle injuries. I feel I can relate with my patients on a personal level and really provide the best care possible.”
