Foot and ankle injuries are a common cause of musculoskeletal pain, and can result in decreased function, disability, and chronic pain if not properly treated. If your foot or ankle stops functioning properly, it can prevent you from participating in sport or even limit your daily activities, such as walking or prolonged standing. In addition to sports-related injuries and fracture care of the foot and ankle, our specialists perform minimally-invasive ankle arthroscopy and cartilage restoration procedures.
For some types of foot and ankle problems, conservative treatments including physical therapy, steroid injections, or anti-inflammatory medications can result in resolution of your symptoms. For other types of problems, or those that have failed conservative management, surgical treatment may be required. We also offer TENEX minimally-invasive procedures for Achilles and Plantar Fascia.
Fractures of the Foot & Ankle
Fractures of the foot and ankle are one of the most common musculoskeletal injuries. They can occur from minor trauma, chronic overuse, or high-energy accidents. Prompt diagnosis and proper treatment are necessary in order to ensure the best outcomes following an injury. We offer specialized fracture care utilizing the latest techniques in diagnosis, imaging, and treatment of these injuries.
Ankle arthroscopy allows the diagnosis and treatment of many common conditions that can cause ankle pain with the use of fiber optics and a small camera placed into the ankle joint through very small incisions. This advanced procedure offers the benefits of no trauma to the surrounding soft tissues, a thorough evaluation of the joint from multiple angles, and a faster recovery following the procedure compared to traditional open techniques. The goals of surgery are to reduce ankle pain and improve function.
