Foot & Ankle

The human body relies on the strength of 26 bones, 33 joints, 20 muscles, and 100 ligaments in the feet to sufficiently support its weight.

We specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of pathologies of the foot and ankle. This includes injuries, malformations, conditions and diseases in adults, children and seniors, as well as rehabilitation following trauma or surgery.

Some of the most common foot & ankle conditions include:

  • Fractures
  • Toe & metatarsal injury
  • Arthritis
  • Flat feet or fallen arches
  • Bunions
  • Ligament damage & sprain
  • Ankle dislocation & sprain

Possible Treatments and Procedures


Cheilectomy:

A procedure to shave off extra bone growth on the top of the big toe’s main joint. It is used to relieve the symptoms of hallux rigidus and many of the patients who have the procedure done go home the same day.

Debridement of Achilles Tear:

The Achilles tendon connects the calf muscle to the heel. Small tears can develop in the tendon through overuse. Since the tendon doesn’t repair easily a debridement of the Achilles tear can alleviate pain.

Medial Calcaneal Sliding Osteotomy:

This surgery is used to correct flat foot or fallen arch. One in four adults in the U.S. has flat feet or fallen arches. Some people are born with flat feet, while others acquire it as they get older. The foot may be flat all the time or it may lose its arch when the person stands (“flexible flatfoot”). Many people with flat feet don’t experience any symptoms. Others, however, suffer from heel or ankle pain, tired feet, bunions, arthritis in the foot or ankle, foot or ankle deformity, knee or back pain, or other problems that need professional treatment.
