Foot and ankle specialists at the Advanced Orthopaedic Center provide diagnosis and treatment for the foot and ankle. This includes bones, muscles, tendons, nerves, joints, and skin. Our specialists are experts in reconstructive foot and ankle procedures. We also treat sports injuries and trauma.
Our team approach fosters collaboration with specialists, including surgeons, physicians, PAs and physical therapists to diagnosis and provide treatment options for our patients. Treatment may include physical therapy, rehabilitative therapy or surgery. If conservative treatment such as medications, shoe appliances and physical therapy don’t help, surgery to replace or fuse the joint may be done.
Ankle fusion, also known as ankle arthrodesis, is a type of surgery to fuse the bones of your ankle into one piece. The surgery is usually done to treat arthritis in the ankle.
Total ankle arthroplasty, also known as total ankle replacement, is a surgical procedure that orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeons use to treat ankle arthritis. Like total knee and hip replacements, the bone is replaced with a metal prothesis.
A fracture is a partial or complete break in a bone. Fractures of the ankle can range from avulsion injuries (small pieces of bone that have been pulled off) to severe shattering-type breaks of the tibia, fibula or both. If the fracture is out of place or your ankle is unstable, your physician may treat it with surgery to align the bones, and add screws and metal plates to hold it in place.
Ankle arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery that uses a tiny, fiber-optic viewing camera and small surgical tools to operate on the ankle joint through small incisions. It is performed to evaluate and treat a variety of ankle conditions.
With state-of-the-art orthotics, advanced bracing techniques and customized treatment, our physicians will take care of you every step of the way.
