Treatment addresses injuries, arthritis, fractures, warts, ingrown or fungal toenails, bone deformities such as bunions and hammer toes.
The foot and ankle team also treats general aches and pains acquired through daily and recreational activities, and the group provides education on preventive medicine, including proper shoe wear and foot care for diabetic patients.
Non-operative techniques may incorporate physical therapy, medications, braces, pads, orthotics and more.
If conservative measures don't provide relief, surgical reconstruction may improve the condition. Options include reconstructive foot and ankle surgeries, such as total ankle replacement and toe replacements.
