Ankle and Foot Surgery

Ankle and Foot Arthritis surgery

Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints. It can cause pain and stiffness in any joint in the body and is common in the small joints of the foot and ankle. Your doctor may recommend surgery if your pain causes disability and is not relieved with nonsurgical treatment. The type of surgery will depend on the type and location of the arthritis and the impact of the disease on your joints. In some cases, your doctor may recommend more than one type of surgery.

Arthroscopic debridement – This surgery may be helpful in the early stages of arthritis. Debridement (cleansing) is a procedure to remove loose cartilage, inflamed synovial tissue, and bone spurs from around the joint.

Arthrodesis (fusion) – Arthrodesis fuses the bones of the joint completely, making one continuous bone out of two or more bones. The goal of the procedure is to reduce pain by eliminating motion in the arthritic joint.

Ankle and foot deformity correction

Foot and ankle deformity correction is the repair of the structural abnormality of the foot and ankle by restoring the normal alignment of the bones in the foot and ankle.

Ankle and foot ligament repair/reconstruction

Ankle ligament reconstruction surgery is used to treat lateral ankle instability and sprains. The objective is to prevent the ankle from giving way and stabilizing it. Our board-certified Orthopedic Surgeons perform the latest minimally invasive techniques to repair loose and torn ligaments due to injury or overuse.

Ankle and foot tendon repair/reconstruction

Foot and ankle ligament and tendon reconstruction is surgery that repairs damaged ligaments or tendons in the lower extremity. Tendons can tear partially or completely during a joint injury. Ligaments can tear or stretch and become loose after repeated strains. Tendon and ligament reconstruction can restore joint stability and range of motion. Procedures vary depending on your diagnosis and the ligaments and tendons that need repair.

Arthroscopic Ankle Surgery

Ankle arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat problems in the ankle joint. Ankle arthroscopy uses a thin fiber-optic camera (arthroscope) that can magnify and transmit images of the ankle to a video screen. Ankle arthroscopies can reduce ankle pain and improve overall function. Arthroscopy can be used to diagnose and treat different disorders of the ankle joint. Some injuries that may require this procedure are ankle arthritis, ankle fractures, and ankle instability.

Cartilage repair surgery

Cartilage is a flexible connective tissue that provides structure and cushioning to joints like your knee, ankle and shoulder. Cartilage Repair Surgery can reattach or remove bits of loose cartilage using minimally invasive arthroscopy. During arthroscopy, our Orthopedic Surgeons insert thin, flexible surgical instruments equipped with a camera through small incisions.
