Dr. Markantone opened his office in North Versailles in 1988 and now treats patients in his Delmont office as well. “ I like to treat patients like family that is how I built my practice.” I find it important to treat the person and not just the condition. It’s going the extra distance but it is well worth it, and that’s the way I like to be treated.
Born and raised in the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh Dr. Markantone graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia before doing a surgical residency at Beth Israel Hospital in New Jersey.
A podiatrist is a doctor who concentrates on foot and ankle care. Foot problems, whether they arise from an injury, poorly fitting shoes, or a genetic defect present from birth are among the most widespread and neglected health problems. Dr. Markantone treats sprains, fractures, bunions, heel pain, hammertoes, neuromas, ingrown nails, warts, corns and calluses, among other difficulties of the foot and ankle.
I treat the entire foot from both a medical and surgical standpoint. When seeing a patient for the first time I will perform a biomechanical examination observing the patient’s gait. Taking a medical history; as well as completing a physical examination. Radiographs are taken if necessary. Based on my clinical, diagnostic and radiographic findings I will develop a treatment protocol specific for each patient.
