Foot and Ankle Pain
The foot and ankle are highly specialized structures that are integral to human locomotion. The combination of mobile and stable joints allows us to adapt to any surface form. By supporting the weight of your body, the feet undergo a lot of wear and tear in the course of a normal lifetime and the complex interaction of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and bones make this area highly susceptible to injuries. When an injury occurs or these structures become weakened from chronic overuse or disease, it’s important to see a qualified orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon promptly to evaluate and treat the condition.
Our orthopedic physicians are experienced in all facets of foot and ankle injuries and degenerative conditions.

Treatments for foot and ankle problems can range from a simple change of footwear to surgical repair of damaged bones or tendons.
