Foot & Ankle Care
Dr. Chris Calcagni, a Podiatrist and Surgeon who wants to earn your trust
At Coastal Foot & Ankle Center in Naples, FL, Dr. Christopher Calcagni provides comprehensive care of foot and ankle disorders, including surgical treatment of athletic injuries and trauma to the foot and leg. Dr. Calcagni also specializes in wound care, diabetic foot disorders, and reconstructive surgery. Patients of all ages are welcome.
Dr. Calcagni offers minimally invasive surgery for foot and ankle disorders. For example, he performs flexor tenotomy, a minimally invasive procedure that involves making a small incision to correct deformities such as hammertoe, claw toe and mallet toe, as well as providing a surgical alternative for the treatment of neuropathic diabetic foot ulcers on the toe.
Preventive care is important if you want to avoid a foot or ankle condition from developing. We can help you achieve better foot health with prompt medical attention for things like ingrown toenails, warts, and heel pain.
Dr. Calcagni will design a custom treatment plan based on a thorough evaluation of your condition. We have the technology and skills to conduct a biomechanical analysis of your foot and create custom-fit orthotics for you.
We also offer PRP therapy (platelet-rich plasma therapy) – a minimally invasive way to promote natural healing after an injury. For more serious problems, Dr. Calcagni may recommend surgical treatment.

When conservative treatments for plantar fasciitis and other foot and ankle problems are not successful, low-level laser therapy (LLLT) provides a swift, painless, noninvasive alternative to surgery – and relieves debilitating pain with no side effects.
Hot laser therapy is an effective, noninvasive treatment option for patients suffering from stubborn toenail fungus, unsightly varicose veins, or painful warts. The procedure has minimal side effects and is performed right here in our Costal Foot & Ankle center.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. In this type of therapy, your own blood is extracted, and it is then processed via a centrifuge to collect the platelets. The rich solution of concentrated platelets is then injected into the area that needs healing. Platelet-rich plasma contains necessary healing and growth factors, and a PRP injection delivers effective pain relief and faster healing exactly where you need it.
Athletes with soft tissue injuries, like a torn Achilles tendon, may choose PRP therapy as an alternative to surgery. It can also be administered after surgery to jump-start the regeneration of healthy tissue.
Similarly, stem cell therapy is a cutting-edge procedure used to treat foot and ankle injuries and conditions that cause pain by regenerating healthy tissue at the site of an injury or wound.
One's own adult stem cells can be harvested without causing any harm or ethical issues associated with embryonic stem cells. The best stem cell source is one's own bone marrow. Once harvested, stem cekks are processed in a lab, then reinjected as close to the source of pain or injury as possible.
By delivering additional stem cells to the affected area than your body would normally deliver, there is a greater likelihood that new, healthy tissue will regenerate.
