PA Podiatry

Thomas M. Rocchio, DPM
2895 Hamilton Blvd, Suite 101,  Allentown, PA 18104   |   610-432-9593

PA Podiatry – a progressive podiatric surgical practice – was started in 2006 by Dr. Thomas Rocchio. From sports medicine to trauma, fracture management to diabetic limb salvage, PA Podiatry is dedicated to providing up-to-date treatment options for various types of foot ailments. With seven  treatment and specialty rooms that offer physical therapy, surgical and laser procedures and in house digital x-ray – as well as a shoe store for diabetic-related needs – PA Podiatry’s Hamilton Boulevard location provides everything  patients need for total foot care  treatment.

To his credit, Rocchio has patented an external fixator used both nationally and internationally for the correction of severe ankle and foot deformity. He has also developed a surgical procedure used for augmentation of an atrophic foot pad at the ball of the foot.  Rocchio’s “parachute technique” has been performed by hundreds of surgeons nationwide.

Board certified in rearfoot and reconstructive surgery by the American Board of Podiatric Surgeons, Rocchio also specializes in many diverse ankle and foot procedures that include total ankle joint replacement.  He is also a pioneer in the surgical correction of a severe diabetic deformity called Charcot.  Through his surgical procedures, many patients – who initially sought a second opinion with Rocchio after being told they faced amputation – have been able to rejoin the ambulating world.

PA Podiatry also participates and supports local  charity events, the most recent being the annual Jocks and Docs golf tournament.

Please contact for address as classes are held in alternate locations.

Music Together® sets the foundation for development of basic music competence – which is the ability to sing in tune and keep a steady beat – in infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. They also provide guidance to children’s caregivers to continue developing these skills at home by providing 10-week music and movement classes. These 10-week sessions occur three times throughout the year, in the winter, spring, and fall. They also offer six-week mini-sessions in the summer.

Music Together was founded in Princeton, NJ, over 20 years ago. The program is research-based, and the classes reflect the many years of studies the founders conducted to determine the ways in which young children are best able to develop basic music skills.

Classes are mixed ages (birth-4), so families with multiple children can participate together. Music Together plans to begin Big Kids Family Music for children ages 5-7 within the next year.

Bring your child to free sample classes at The Downtown Bethlehem Association’s Veg Fest on September 10th at the Greenway Linear Park on Bethlehem’s Southside.

Using only the highest quality ingredients from FDA-inspected wholesalers and manufacturers, Catasauqua Compounding’s goal is to provide the finest compounded prescriptions to patients who don’t fit the “standard mold” for commercially available prescriptions, including children, the elderly or those who are allergic to dyes or preservatives commonly found in medications.

Compounding also allows a pharmacist to add flavors, allowing some medications to be more palatable.

The  pharmacy was created in 2003 and is a sister company to Hartzell’s Pharmacy Inc. Robert Hartzell, RPh, created the company to offer a more specialized approach to compounding.

Catasauqua Compounding follows strict quality control and quality assurance protocols to accurately fill medications to your doctor’s specifications and to meet your personal needs. They not only offer their services for you and your family, but also for your pets.
