Foot and Ankle Service
What Sets Us Apart?
We know that comprehensive care is the best way to treat the entire range of foot pain, ankle pain and related injuries and disorders. That’s why our center has become a destination for those with foot and ankle fractures, tendon and ligament problems, arthritis, deformities, and sports trauma. Our teams integrate foot and ankle specialists and therapists, all dedicated to eliminating the pain and limitations such disorders can cause. And because we believe in compassionate, focused care, we emphasize minimally invasive and arthroscopic procedures so patients have options for a faster recovery, a reduced risk of infection, and a quicker return to full function.
Our foot and ankle fellowship-trained MDs provide minimally invasive and arthroscopic reconstructions along with innovative treatments to preserve joint motion and function when possible. We specialize in total ankle replacement and ankle joint cartilage resurfacing procedures. We also provide orthotics and prosthetics on site. From the common to the complex, our specialists provide insight and effective solutions.
Our fellowship-trained surgeons have invented new ankle implants, and are conducting innovative research in orthobiologics.
