Move with Ease
Problems of the foot or ankle can cause widespread pain and discomfort and inhibit your ability to live a healthy, active life. An experienced podiatrist can help you get to the root of the problem and restore functionality to these essential areas of the body. Our compassionate surgical staff is here to make your treatment as easy and painless as possible. If you are experiencing any type of pain in your foot or ankle, don’t delay getting the help you need any longer.
Rebuild a Strong Foundation
Podiatric surgery focuses on the treatment of conditions related to the ankle or foot. This includes treating issues that impair alignment and proper gait. In addition, a podiatric surgeon can treat abnormalities in your feet and lower limbs. They can also help with more common complaints related to the feet, including diabetic ulcers, ingrown nails, calluses, corns, and plantar fasciitis.
The Achilles tendon is the thick tissue band between your calf muscles and heels. Damage to this tendon can impair walking and cause pain. In Achilles tendon repair, the tissue is repaired and reconnected so you can walk with ease again.
If you've noticed a bony bump at the base of your toe, you may have a bunion. This bony growth forces the joints in your toes to stick out, causing pain. Bunion surgery removes the bunion, providing relief from pain and assuring proper positioning of the toes.
Reconstructive surgery treats malformations of the foot that affect your gait, balance, or appearance. This type of podiatric surgery is generally advised for severe foot injury, tumors, lesions, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Healthy Feet for an Active Life
The functioning of your legs, ankles, or feet can be affected by illness, injuries, or daily wear and tear. Whether you have a diabetic foot ulcer, sports injury, or calluses/corns, we work with your doctor to provide highly-skilled care that provides relief. Since your feet are responsible for supporting your body weight, it is crucial to keep them healthy. Podiatric surgery can help you get moving again, improving your overall health and sense of well-being.
Take the First Step
Problems related to the feet and ankles are extremely common. Leaving foot and ankle complaints untreated can not only impair your comfort and mobility but also lead to issues with your alignment and gait that can cause problems elsewhere in the body. Your surgeon will assess your medical history and any current conditions, such as diabetes, to make sure that your surgery can be safely performed and yield optimal results.
Providing a Smooth Surgical Experience
We are equipped with the latest technologies and know-how to support effective treatments that provide relief. Local and general anesthesia or sedation may be used to ensure your comfort during any surgical procedure. Most surgeries of the feet and ankles can be performed in a relatively short period of time in our modern and comfortable surgery center. After your procedure, you will be monitored by one of our caring nurses before you are released to recover at home.
Depending on your procedure, you may need to ask someone for a ride home and enlist extra help around the house until you get back on your feet. It is critical that you follow your surgeon’s aftercare instructions so as not to compromise the results of your surgery or incur additional injuries. Your recovery will be assessed at your post-op visit, and we are always available to talk with you regarding any questions or concerns you may have.
