Dr. Richard M. Cowin, DPM of Laser Foot Surgery Specialist is delighted to be working with Natural Awakenings Magazine. Born,raised, and medically trained in Chicago, Dr. Cowin is one of this country’s leading pioneers and practitioners of minimally invasive and laser foot surgery. Minimally invasive foot surgery (MIFS) comprises a number of foot surgery procedures which are performed through incisions as small as 1/8 inch which generally require only a 1-stitch closure and which allow for immediate ambulation. Some of the common foot problems that are treatable with a laser are bunions, tailors bunions, hammertoes and heel spurs. The procedures are performed in his office

under local anesthesia and do not require the insertion of pins, screws, or implants.

Dr. Cowin also performs laser surgery for ingrown and fungal toenails, warts, porokeratomas (painful clogged sweat ducts) and neuromas. Lasers are a very precise surgical tool that can seal blood vessels and sterilize germs as they operate. This may result in less pain, less scarring, and reduced chances of infection and recurrence.

Dr. Cowin is board-certified in Minimally Invasive Foot & Ankle Surgery by The American Board of Multiple Specialties in Podiatry and he is a recipient of the Hall of Fame Award from The Academy of Minimally Invasive Foot & Ankle Surgery. During the month of November and for our Natural Awakenings readers, he is offering a Free download of his book “The Agony of Da-
Feet…How to Walk Away From a Foot Operation On Your Own Two Feet.” This valuable and informative resource can be found at For more info or for an appointment, call him at 407-722-8750.
