Foot and Ankle Conditions We Treat

Your feet and ankles work hard to meet the demands of daily life and the repetitive stress of exercise. Unfortunately, they’re vulnerable to injury. Our foot and ankle surgeons most commonly treat:

  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Ankle arthritis
  • Ankle pain, including overuse, tendinitis, and impingement.
  • Arthritis in toes and feet, including hallux rigidus and gout.
  • Bunions
  • Flatfoot
  • Foot deformities
  • Fractures and sprains, including stress fractures.
  • Heel pain, including plantar fasciitis.
  • Morton’s neuroma and other foot pain.
  • Tendinitis in feet and ankles.
  • Toe pain, including hammer toe and mallet toe.

Treatments for Foot and Ankle Injuries

When we can, we start with conservative treatments, such as:

  • Medication to reduce pain, inflammation, or swelling.
  • Injections that relieve pain, such as epidural steroid injections.
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation. Working with our physical therapists can help reduce pain and improve mobility. For many people, PT alone can help them get back to activities they enjoy.

Foot and Ankle Surgeries We Perform

Some injuries and conditions need more intervention, including surgery. Common procedures include:

  • Arthroscopy: Doctors make tiny incisions and use a tool called an arthroscope, which contains a tiny camera, to examine or repair damaged tissue. Surgeons can also use arthroscopy to repair ankle instability, relieve ankle arthritis, and treat a variety of other foot and ankle conditions.
  • Foot and ankle surgery: For conditions that affect the structure and shape of the foot, we may shorten, lengthen, or straighten the toe or other bones in the foot. We also correct foot deformities, hammer toe, neuromas, and fracture-related problems such as ankle fracture fixation.
  • Tendon and ligament repair surgery: We can repair torn or injured tendons and ligaments with surgery, such as Achilles tendon reconstruction or repair and lateral ligamentous reconstruction. These types of surgeries can relieve pain, improve range of motion, and strengthen the foot and ankle.
  • Total ankle replacement: Patients with severe arthritis in their ankle(s) may benefit from a total ankle replacement, also known as ankle arthroplasty. In this procedure, surgeons remove damaged ankle cartilage and replace it with an artificial implant to restore mobility.
