Dr. James Clough

James Clough, DPM, is a podiatric surgeon and brings his expert foot care to Lake County patients. Dr. Clough’s philosophy of practice is to employ the best technology and the latest procedures to achieve optimal outcomes for his patients. He prefers a conservative approach to most foot problems initially, is able to treat complex foot deformities surgically, and has a special interest in foot biomechanics and sports injuries.

Dr. Clough received his medical degree in podiatry from the California College of Podiatric Medicine in San Francisco, followed by a surgical residency at Metropolitan Hospital – Parkview Division in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Dr. Clough is a Board-Certified diplomate with the American Board of Foot & Ankle Surgery and a Board-Certified fellow with the American College of Foot & Ankle Surgeons.

Dr. Clough’s podiatric services include:

  • ingrown toenail removal
  • bunionectomy
  • rear-foot reconstructions

His diabetic limb salvage techniques can help diabetic patients preserve their foot function and avoid amputation. Using biologic grafts, Dr. Clough can help heal wounds more quickly, reduce infection rates, and reduce protein loss (which can impact blood sugar levels).

Dr. Clough urges those with diabetes to stay on top of their foot care needs:

  • schedule annual foot exams
  • seek proper nail care
  • treat neuropathies and callouses
  • perform at-home foot inspections regularly

When he’s not caring for patients, Dr. Clough enjoys spending his time outside snow skiing, hunting, and tending to his garden.

Dr. Clough will be in our Southshore clinics on Thursdays and Fridays.
