Welcome to Our Practice.

Welcome to CT Family Foot Care and Surgery At CT Family Foot Care and Surgery, we believe that a doctor and patient become a team for treating an individual's feet. Dr. Paragas will spend most of her time listening to understand your concerns and responding with the best treatment options for you. With the help of our professional staff, she will also follow up to make sure that general pain is relieved, problems are resolved and your health improves.

In addition, we offer the most advanced treatment options for non-invasive pain relief. Our MLS laser therapy provides a painless solution to treating pain and allows our patients to avoid the pitfalls of long term NSAID or pain medication. The vast majority of our patients will feel better without the need for surgery. We also want our patients to be informed about podiatric problems and treatments because informed patients make better decisions about their health and well-being. That is why we've included an extensive section on this web site covering the full array of topics associated with podiatry and podiatric diagnoses and treatments. We offer treatments for bunions, plantar fasciitis, and foot pain. We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern about your feet.

As an additional convenience to our patients, we offer Vionic shoes - available to try on and purchase in our office. We also know that convenience in the Hamden area is important to your selection of a podiatrist. In these web pages you'll find information about CT Family Foot Care and Surgery's office, including our Hamden location, maps, directions, hours, insurance policies and appointment scheduling. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have or to request an appointment. We hope you'll find our practice offers the accessibility and personal commitment you look for from a physician.
