Foot and Ankle Conditions We Treat
Your podiatrist will try nonsurgical treatments before referring you to a surgeon. We offer surgery for many common foot problems, including:
- Bunions: Bunions are bony lumps at the base of the big toe and side of your foot. Doctors may recommend bunion surgery (osteotomy) to straighten your toe and foot.
- Hammertoes: In this condition, the toe bends at the middle joint (second, third or fourth toe). Your surgeon may reposition tendons or remove part of ligaments or bone.
- Ankle arthritis: People with arthritis have pain and stiffness from normal wear and tear or immune system illness. Surgical treatments include fusing bones together, replacing the ankle joint or removing damaged tissue.
- Plantar fasciitis: This condition causes pain on the bottom of your heel caused by irritation or inflammation in the band of tissue that supports your arch. Your doctor may recommend surgery to lengthen your calf muscles or release ligaments in your foot.
