THE SPORTS FOOT DOCTOR
Dr. Lawrence A. Czelusta is widely recognized as a leading practitioner of sports podiatry. Athletes have come to San Antonio from as far away as South Africa to seek his advice and podiatric treatment. Dr. Czelusta's foot-and-ankle care has been sought out by Olympians (including a gold medalist in modern Pentathlon), NCAA collegiate athletes, professional athletes, and numerous amateur sports participants. His treatments and diagnoses are based on his extensive experience as a physician, on his tenure as a physical therapist, on the latest sports-medicine research, and on his own experience as a National and World Champion runner and cyclist.
Dr. Czelusta adheres to the philosophy that surgery should be a last resort. Most doctors are quick to recommend surgery because they have a monetary incentive to do so. However, many problems can be treated without operation. As an athlete and doctor, Dr. Czelusta's first priority is to get you back to your sport, if possible without expensive and potentially harmful surgical procedures.
Whether you are an elite athlete or you are training for your first sprint triathlon, Dr. Czelusta's expert sports podiatry care will put you on a path to a sustainable, long-term athletic career.
