COLUMBIA, TN – After two decades away from her hometown, Dr. Danielle Malin knew it was time to get back to her roots. She recently returned to Columbia and opened up her office, Premier Foot & Ankle Care. She’s also commissioned a redesign of the practice’s website as an informative service to her valued clients.
According to Dr. Malin, the new website provides in-depth information about common conditions including plantar warts, bunion treatment, hammertoe treatment, and foot and ankle pain. Visitors to the site can also learn about surgical options, book an appointment, follow on social media, complete new patient forms, and find additional contact information.

- Bunion surgery. Bunions are a painful condition typified by the enlargement of tissue or bone, often at the base of the big or little toe. Most common in women, bunion surgery is a last-resort treatment used to correct bunions that wearing properly-fitted footwear doesn’t help.
- Plantar fasciitis surgery. Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain and is the result of stress on the long ligament at the bottom of the foot. While most patients can be treated conservatively in the office, some will require surgery particularly with chronic heel pain.
- Achilles tendon treatment. Runners and many older individuals are susceptible to Achilles tendinitis. This condition results in symptoms, which include pain at the back of the heel and tenderness. While Achilles tendinitis can often be resolved with conservative treatment, some cases may need surgical intervention. Dr. Malin reminds her clients that the Achilles tendon is the strongest tendon in the body and can result in extreme pain and discomfort when injured or inflamed.
- Flat feet treatment. When a person experiences flat feet, they are missing the arch that provides balance and support. Dr. Malin explains that flat feet are common in people of all ages, including young children, and may be treated with bracing or orthotics. Surgery is rarely needed. As a pediatric podiatrist, Dr. Malin recommends children are treated for flat feet as soon as issues are noticed.
