Nashville-Davidson, Tennessee -

Nashville, Tennessee - CE Foot and Ankle Clinic, a leading provider of comprehensive podiatry care, is thrilled to announce its partnership with The Lois M. DeBerry Special Needs Prison Facility (DSNF) in Nashville, Tennessee. This collaboration aims to offer specialized podiatric services to offenders with complex medical conditions within a secure and dedicated healthcare environment.

DSNF is a unique corrections system hospital that provides inpatient and outpatient care to the offender population with complex medical needs. By partnering with CE Foot and Ankle Clinic, DSNF can now offer a range of services specifically designed to address foot and ankle health concern. Some of the services include foot and ankle exams, foot injury care, management of foot care for chronic conditions, foot pain management, preventive education, and even surgical procedures when necessary.

Access to podiatric care within correctional facilities is crucial for maintaining the health and well-being of inmates. Untreated foot issues can lead to discomfort, immobility, and lead to more severe conditions and reduced quality of life. Through the expertise of Dr. Lanier and Dr. Farnen and their team at CE Foot and Ankle Clinic, inmates at DSNF will receive top-quality podiatry care, ensuring their overall health and facilitating their rehabilitation journey.

Dr. Yerusalem Lanier, co-founder at CE Foot and Ankle Clinic, is known for her dedication to improving the lives of her community through compassionate care and innovative initiatives. Growing up witnessing her parents struggle with various foot-related ailments, including gout and diabetes, Dr. Lanier developed a profound passion for helping others in need. A graduate of Kent State Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine and a former resident of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery at St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester, MA, Dr. Lanier has become a leader in her field.

Dr. David Farnen, co-founder of CE Foot and Ankle Clinic, brings a wealth of expertise and a passion for research to the partnership. With a strong background in foot and ankle surgery and a focus on dermatological pathologies, diabetic foot care, wound care, and cutting-edge technologies, Dr. Farnen is committed to delivering comprehensive and advanced foot and ankle care to patients. He holds board qualifications from the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery and is certified by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine with a subspecialty in limb salvage, wound care, and hyperbaric oxygen therapies.

The team believes in early intervention and emphasizes the importance of regular podiatric care, particularly for individuals with diabetes who are at a higher risk of complications. Dr. Lanier reassures potential patients, saying, "Not everyone needs to see a podiatrist, but if you are noticing any foot problems, we love to catch things early."

The partnership between CE Foot and Ankle Clinic and The Lois M. DeBerry Special Needs Prison Facility represents a significant step forward in providing specialized healthcare to the prison population. Through this collaborative community initiative, both organizations aim to contribute to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of offenders and improve their overall quality of life.

There are five locations of CE Foot and Ankle Clinic in the Greater Nashville Tennessee area, ensuring easier access to care for patients. The team also provides virtual health visits. For more information about CE Foot and Ankle Clinic please visit cefootandankle.com.
