Foot/ Ankle Conditions
Our feet and ankles bear the weight of the entire body as we take upwards of 10,000 or more steps every day. Whether due to deformity, injury or wear and tear, injury to the feet and ankles can cause a great deal of pain and disability. Further, our feet and ankles are composed of a complex network of bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves which require medical expertise to ensure the best outcomes.
Much like any joint, minor to moderate foot and ankle problems are often treated with conservative and/or medical options. This may include losing weight, rest, ice, anti-inflammatory medication and physical therapy.
However, when these conservative treatments fail to offer the patient significant improvement in their symptoms, surgical intervention may be considered. Many foot and ankle problems are addressed using a minimally invasive surgical technique known as arthroscopy. Some patients may require a complete replacement of the joint known as a total ankle replacement surgery. Click on the links below to learn more about common foot and ankle conditions we treat.
