What Do the Foot and Ankle Do?
The foot plays many important roles, including:
- Shock absorber
- Lever to propel yourself
- Adapt to uneven surfaces
- Translates forces generated by the hip
The ankle plays a major role in the overall movement, allowing you to walk, run, and jump. An injury to either the foot or ankle can greatly impact your movement and quality of life.
Foot and Ankle Treatments
We routinely perform several foot and ankle treatments at The Orthopedic Clinic, including:
We make a small incision to diagnose and treat the injury. This is a minimally-invasive procedure we perform regularly. The advantages of our approach include:
- Lower chance of bleeding and infection
- Faster recovery
- On-site post-surgery physical therapy
- Physical therapists who work closely with the surgeon
Fracture care treatment depends on the injury to the foot or ankle. Visit our fracture care page to learn more about our treatment options.
Acute and Chronic Ankle Sprains
We provide both surgical and non-surgical treatment options for foot and ankle sprains. At The Orthopedic Clinic, we believe that surgery can be an effective option, but needs to be agreed upon by the physician and patient after other treatments haven’t helped.
Ankle Fusion Surgery
An ankle fusion is a surgical procedure that is usually done when an ankle joint becomes worn out and painful. We remove the surfaces of the ankle joint and allow the tibia to grow together, or fuse, with the talus. A fusion keeps the ankle joint from moving during walking and other activities, so the other foot joints will need good mobility.
Achilles Tendon Repair
There are several techniques to repair an injured Achilles tendon. We’ll individualize our approach to your needs. We typically perform this procedure in an outpatient setting so you spend minimal time in the hospital.
Achilles Tendinosis Surgery
A condition common in athletes, the procedure to repair this involves making a small incision to remove the injured tendon, repairing it, and re-inserting it through the incision.
We perform both surgical and non-surgical procedures to repair injured peroneal tendons. The best treatment depends on your needs. We’ll individualize the treatment plan to you.
