About All South Bay Footcare
All South Bay Footcare was founded in 1983 in Torrance, CA by Dr. Gregory Teles, D.P.M. They have served the South Bay area since then, correcting foot problems quickly and comfortably. They specialize in minimal incision surgery, allowing you to get back on your feet more quickly.
It has now been over forty years since the original pioneers began the development of minimal incision surgery. Doctors sought the means of ending discomfort and suffering for a wider cross section of the population. They reasoned that if the necessity for hospitalization and prolonged disability were eliminated, more people could afford to avail themselves of podiatric services. As development of this art progressed, they found that it was rarely necessary to incapacitate their patients. Painful bunions, recurring corns, heel spurs, contracted toes and hammer toes were corrected by this new technique and the patients remained ambulatory. Through the years, other interested physicians and surgeons made worthwhile contribution until we have reached today's state of the art surgery techniques. Cost effective, minimal incision foot surgery is a reality and is being practiced in this office.
Ambulatory foot surgery (minimal incision foot surgery), in most instances, is performed in our office or an outpatient surgical center. A small incision is made in the patient's skin and a specially designed instrument is inserted into this opening. The entire procedure is performed through this tiny opening. At the conclusion of the surgery, a few stitches may be used to close the opening and a small bandage protects the area. The patient generally leaves the office walking, and in many instances in his own shoes! The condition has been corrected, the patient remains ambulatory, and discomfort and prolonged disability have been avoided.
At South Bay Footcare, treatments include ingrown toenails, diabetic foot care, bunion, bone spurs and corn correction, as well as minimally invasive treatment for Morton’s neuroma and other painful foot conditions. We also provide testing of foot gait and the making of specially built orthotic shoes, using the Footmaxx system.

Sixteen years ago, I had surgery on both bunions and had one toe shortened by Dr. Teles, who is an awesome podiatrist. Before that, I never felt comfortable wearing sandals and taking off my shoes ‘n socks around men. After the surgery, it was like a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Within 2 months, I met the best man in the world, we got married and are extremely happy still today. I attribute much of my success then to regaining my confidence thanks to Dr. Teles. He is so caring and is extremely honest on how you can resolve your foot issues the easiest way and at the most reasonable price as possible. He’s not the type to rush to an excessive diagnosis that you don’t need. I recommend him to all of my family, even the ones out of state.

Dr. Teles is absolutely amazing! He dubbed himself the King of Ingrowns, I can definitely verify this to be true. I was able to run three days after my surgery. I told him about my apprehension about foot surgery because of my previous horrible encounter. Dr. Teles was quick to say, "that was the past"... definitely a great podiatrist! I intend on doing my other foot once i am fully healed. The staff was very approachable and friendly!
