Foot & Ankle

Introduction

Foot and ankle surgeons are responsible for managing the problems that affect all aspects of the leg below the knee. The treatments provided can be in the form of orthotics, braces, physical therapy, injections or surgery. Our foot and ankle surgeons have undergone years of specialist training to understand and treat the wide variety of conditions in the foot whilst preserving the delicate balance of bones, tendons and ligaments in order to allow you the quickest possible return to full function.

Why do you need treatment by a foot and ankle surgeon?

If a person develops a problem with the foot and ankle the symptoms can be persistent, annoying and even, in some cases, disabling. Foot and ankle surgeons are trained to maintain an overview of all the treatment options available and direct your treatment accordingly. Whilst they will frequently make use of non-operative treatment programmes, they have the appropriate training and experience to operate on the area with the best chance of success when surgery proves necessary.

Foot Surgery

The scope of foot surgery is vast and requires a wide range of operative skills. Key hole (arthroscopic) techniques allow for highly complex operations to be carried out through tiny incisions whilst many more of the techniques available require intricate re-sculpting of the architecture of the foot through dividing and moving bones. The ligaments and tendons of the foot are also highly important and require very different skills for operative treatment. Foot and ankle surgeons are well trained in all of these techniques and devote a significant part of their time and effort to ensure that they remain up to date with all of the most recent developments in this very complicated field.

Bunion Surgery

A Bunion is the name for a lump that forms over the inner side of the big toe. The condition is often associated with an abnormal shape of the big toe, which drifts over towards the outside of the foot.

Hallux Rigidus

Arthritis of the great toe causes pain and stiffness that is called Hallux Rigidus by surgeons (hallux = big toe, rigidus = stiff). Confusingly, podiatrists use a slightly different nomenclature reserving hallux rigidus for severe conditions where the toe is completely rigid.

Ankle Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a surgical technique, which allows a joint to be inspected through small incisions using a camera, it is also commonly known as keyhole or minimally invasive surgery.
