GREATER AKRON — Ohio Foot and Ankle Center is a podiatric surgical practice, with its newest office located at 2660 W. Market St., No. 101, in Fairlawn.

The business also has locations at 1700 Boettler Road, Suite 150, in Green; 4642 Hills and Dales Ave. N.W. in Canton; and 3226 Kent Road in Stow.

Dr. Aaron Chokan, DPM (doctor of podiatric medicine), president of the 10-year-old business, explained the Ohio Foot and Ankle Centers specialize in reconstructive, diabetic and traumatic surgery of the foot and ankle, and also treat common and uncommon lower extremity ailments.

“Podiatry is often misunderstood,” said Chokan. “The specialty is not just about problems with toenails. We are a full-service physician’s office, dealing with everything from ingrown toenails to ankle joint replacements to limb lengthening procedures for those in severe accidents. We offer conservative options and surgery.”

Chokan added that he and Drs. Tejinder Sahota and Andrew Diller — all DPMs — also see patients with problems such as wounds, athletic injuries, heel pain, bunions and hammer toes, biomechanical (walking) issues and problems related to diabetes.

“No one should have to suffer with pain,” he said. “We can offer immediate relief with an injection, a brace or an orthopedic. We can also investigate the problem to determine what is causing the pain. We are technologically advanced and take the time to explain and help patients understand the problem.”

Chokan said patients have the convenience of visiting any of the offices, as all medical records are in electronic formats and can be transferred among locations.

“Our offices have a friendly staff and offer great care, and we also care about the communities we are in,” said Chokan. “We are involved in local chamber events and participate in local functions.”

Chokan is a fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and a fellow of the American College of Clinical Wound Specialists. Sahota and Diller are associate members of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgery. 

All Ohio Foot and Ankle Center offices are open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and can be reached at: 330-867-9303 in Fairlawn; 330-899-0988 in Green; 330-477-4400 in Canton; and 330-929-3331 in Stow. For more information, visit www.ohiofac.com.
