Foot and ankle services we provide

Using targeted orthotics, non-opioid medication and minimally invasive surgery, we are prepared for the complexities of foot and ankle care with a variety of treatment options.

Foot and ankle care team

If you have experienced an acute, overuse or sports injury, or have developed persistent pain in your bones, tendons or gait-affecting muscles, it is critical to receive prompt orthopedic treatment to restore function. At our facility, you will be cared for by a multidisciplinary team of physicians, imaging specialists, physical therapists and foot and ankle orthopedic surgeons. These experienced professionals work together to accurately diagnose, treat and manage musculoskeletal foot and ankle disorders, getting to know your specific needs before moving forward with treatment.

Nonsurgical treatments

We prioritize using nonsurgical treatments before moving forward with surgery. Our comprehensive sports medicine, inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient physical therapy programs specialize in positive outcomes, particularly when combined with conservative measures, such as joint injections and bracing. If these types of options don't resolve your issue, we may consider surgery.

Reconstructive foot and ankle surgery

Our orthopedic surgeons are skilled in minimally invasive arthroscopy and reconstructive foot and ankle surgery. These methods work to reduce your pain and return you to your desired level of activity as soon as possible.

We are also able to replace damaged bone and tissue in your ankle through a total ankle replacement procedure. As part of our commitment to offering advanced surgical methods, we use computerized tomography (CT)-guided technology, which allows your surgeon to place an implant into your ankle with extreme precision. Modeled to your anatomy's specifications, a CT-guided implant placement results in a more natural feeling ankle and range of movement. This enables you to move forward and maybe even forget that you had surgery.
