A foot and ankle specialist takes care of bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, nerves, skin and nails in the leg, ankle and foot. As surgeons, We often provide operative treatment for these problem areas. However, surgery is rarely the only treatment, and often is not the best treatment for your problem. A Foot and Ankle surgeon is qualified to evaluate your particular problem, and decide with you what the most appropriate treatment for that problem should be.
Our goal is to help you understand your problem, and advise you about the treatment options. There are often different ways to treat foot and ankle injuries and conditions.
Our job is to determine what is bothering you the most, define what your problem is, and explain to you the benefits and consequences of the different treatment options. Together, we can decide what will be the best treatment plan, and then proceed with that.
