Foot & Ankle Treatments

 

The foot and ankle are complex structures built to support our bodies and withstand the impact of walking, running, jumping, and countless other activities. The two parts are made up of 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. There are many types of surgeries used to treat foot and ankle problems when non-surgical methods are ineffective.

Total Ankle Replacement

Ankle joint replacement, also known as total ankle arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to relieve pain and immobility due to ankle arthritis. This procedure is often recommended after a patient has tried all other non-surgical treatment options and still suffers from severe ankle pain. This is a surgical procedure that will replace and resurface the damaged areas of the ankle. State of the art artificial implants are used to replace damaged areas of the ankle in order to eliminate bone-on-bone friction that is often the root cause of the pain.
