Ankle Replacement Surgery

A great option for arthritis in the ankle. Usually patients with arthritis are thinking about an ankle fusion or a replacement.

Arthritis

Arthritis of a joint is when the normal cartilage has broken down and bone is rubbing on bone. This creates pain and inflammation.

Achilles Tendonitis

Acute inflammation of the achilles tendon. Pain is usually on the back of the heel or ankle.

Achilles Tendonosis

Chronic injury to the achilles tendon. This results in thickening of the tendon around the insertion.

Achilles Tendon Rupture

Basketball and soccer injuries are the most common reason to rupture the achilles. Can happen during any running or jumping activity.

Adult Flatfoot

By itself, there is no need to treat. Painful flatfoot should be treated.

Ankle Fractures

The bones inside of the ankle joint are broken. Depending on the fracture type, surgery might be needed.

Ankle Sprain

The most common sports injury. Sprains can be mild or severe.

Arthroscopy

Placement of a camera inside of a joint with small incisions. Usually in the ankle.

Bunions

Bump on the big toe joint. Mostly a genetic deformity.

Callus

Thickening of skin due to pressure or irritation.

Cavus Foot

A foot with a higher arch. Treatment needed if there is pain.

Calcaneal Apophysitis

Irritation of the growth plate at the back of the heel bone. Seen usually in kids that do lots of running.

Calcaneus Fracture

Break in the heel bone. Usually due to a fall.

Charcot Foot

Usually seen in patients with diabetes. The joints and ligaments give out and the foot collapses.

Chronic Lateral Ankle Pain

This can be due to a tendon injury or ligament injury.

Chronic Lateral Ankle Stability

Chronic ankle sprains will cause this. When physical therapy fails, surgery is a good option.

Clubfoot

A deformity seen at birth. Early stretching and casting is key.

Coalition

An abnormal growing of bones that should typically be separated.

Corn

Much like a callous. Forms from high pressure.

Diabetic Foot

Needs extra attention due to higher risk of infection. A Podiatrist is the best option to treat any diabetic foot problems.

Fifth Metatarsal Fracture

A common injury after ankle sprains. Displacement will determine the need for surgery.

Foot Fracture

There are many bones in the foot and any of them can break. A Podiatrist is best for any foot injury.

Foot Pain

So many causes of foot pain. Going to see a good Podiatrist will get you back on your feet faster.

Ganglion Cyst

A benign growth. Usually seen around joints or tendons.

Gout

When uric acid leaks out of joints and creates intense pain.

Haglund’s Deformity

Extra growth of bone on the back of the calcaneus.

Hallux Limitus Rigidus

Arthritis of the big toe joint. Can be genetic or seen decades after an injury. Most patients do not remember the injury.

Hammer Toe

Contracture of tendons of the toes. This causes toe deformities.

Heel Fracture

One of the worst injuries of the foot. Usually due to a fall.

Heel Pain

Plantar fasciitis is the most common reason for heel pain. Good shoes and stretching will be needed to cure.

Ingrown Nail

When the corners of the nails or back of nail digs in the skin. This can cause an infection. Removing the ingrown is the best treatment option.

Intoeing

Internal hip rotation is the most common reason for intoeing. Monitoring and/or PT is advised.

Laser Toe Nail Fungus

Use of a laser to get rid of fungal nails. Safe and effective.

Lisfranc’s Injury

A frequently missed injury. An MRI is needed to rule out.

Metatarsalgia

Pain on the metatarsals. Due to increased pressure on the ball of the foot.

Neuroma

Nerve enlargement. Usually due to shoes that are too narrow.

Neuropathy

Loss of normal sensation in the nerves.

Open Fracture

A fracture and an open wound together. The open wound connects to the fracture.

Orthotics

Custom orthotics are used to help with alignment and decrease pain.

Osteochondral Defects

Cartilage injury. Usually seen in the talus bone.

Pediatric Flatfoot

Monitoring is typically advised. Rarely is treatment suggested.

Peripheral Vascular Disease

Poor blood flow. Usually arterial in nature. Can sometime be venous.

Peroneal Tendonitis

The lateral ankle tendons become irritated.

Plantar Fasciitis

The most common foot injury. Good shoes and stretches is key. Early treatment is very important. We have lots of information to cure plantar fasciitis on this website.

Plantar Wart

A viral infection of the skin. Very common around swimming pools.

Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP

Scars

When tissue does not heal up as well as possible. Silicone is good to decrease scars. Cortisone injections are sometimes needed.

Sesamoiditis

A very stubborn injury. Offloading is key. Custom orthotics, walking boot, cast.

Sever’s Disease

Calcaneal apophysitis. Irritation of the growth plate on the back of the heel.

Skin Grafting

Taken from the patient and applied to a wound. Speeds up wound healing.

Smelly (Malodorous) Feet
