 Advanced Ankle & Foot Clinics

Welcome to the Advanced Ankle and Foot Clinics Website!  In our practice we provide a combination of advanced medical technologies with a conservative approach that may allow us to avoid surgery altogether, using the deep expertise of  Dr. W. Joseph Barrett. We keep up with the latest developments in ankle and foot conservative techniques and the most advanced surgical procedures; however, just because it's new, or it's advertised heavily, it may not be ADVANCED!

At Advanced Ankle and Foot Clinics every patient is treated with the greatest respect. Conservative methods are always employed when appropriate prior to considering surgical options.  We also take pride in our "on time" scheduling. 

We make a special effort to thoroughly explain your ankle of foot pain and treatment options. Our primary concern is the quickest resolution of your pain and ankle/foot problems. Treatment plans are carefully tailored to each individual's needs.



The latest in a long line of our firsts is the introduction of the new powerful Class IV Medical Laser, the K-Laser.  Dr. Barrett is the 1st ankle and foot specialist to make the K-Laser available in the State of Washington. The K-Laser has been scientifically proven to promote much quicker healing of acute and chronic musculo/skeletal problems (like plantar fasciitis, achilles tendiniitis, sprains, etc.) while providing pain relief.  Dr. Barrett was also the 1st physician to use AirCasts in all of Pierce and Thurston Counties.  He was the surgeon in Pierce/Thurston Counties that introduce the very 1st Knee Rollers instead of wheel chairs or crutches for injured or post operative patients.  Dr. Barrett was the 1st surgeon recorded to use screw fixation bunionectomies.  Dr Barrett had the 1st in office ultrasound imaging technology in a podiatry office in the South Puget Sound.  He also was a pioneer in surgical lasers providing the 1st in office CO2 laser, in a podiatry office in the State of Washington.  Dr. Barrett makes every effort to obtain new, proven technology as soon as possible and provide it for his patients, usually making his practice the first to have these most advanced techniques available.
