Dr. Ashley Bowles, a board-certified reconstructive foot and ankle surgeon and certified wound specialist, treats all ailments, big or small, below the knee. “As a lifelong dancer, I was inspired to improve people’s quality of life through optimizing foot health,” explains Dr. Bowles.

“The most rewarding part of my practice is saving patients’ feet after others have recommended amputation. One of the newest advancements for wound care and painful, inflammatory conditions utilizes amniotic fluid from donated placentas. This amazing treatment accelerates healing and reduces pain,” she says. “My patients can avoid the hospital and affiliated wound centers. I use the latest technology in our comprehensive practice so patients don’t need to look all over town for answers. We have the only stand-up CT scanner in the area and a dedicated foot and ankle MRI which provide a faster, more accurate diagnosis than plain x-ray.”

Dr. Bowles performs nerve surgery to alleviate painful neuropathy and offers a new, minimally invasive treatment for peripheral nerves with “Stimwave”

“This is ideal for people who wish to stop taking heavy pain medicine or have been previously told there are no options to address their pain,” she explains.

“Another condition I often see is thinning of the fat pad which has people feeling like they’re walking on rocks. We offer a collagen injection similar to what’s used in the face. This provides immediate relief, acting as an internal pillow where you’ve lost the natural cushioning.” says Dr. Bowles. “I stay current with the latest treatment options to provide the best outcomes and keep my patients active.”
