Whether caused by an underlying condition like arthritis or diabetes or because of common injuries or ill-fitting footwear, foot and ankle pain is one of the leading causes of visits to an orthopaedic specialist. Foot and ankle health is important to everyone.
We treat the full spectrum of ankle, foot and toe injuries, from common ailments, minor injuries, bunions and abrasions to severe foot pain, ankle arthritis, and fractures. Often, many of these problems can be treated in the office with shoe modifications and exercises - but even small adjustments can often lead to big improvements. When surgery is required, our specially trained foot and ankle surgeon can help you get back on your feet quickly.
Foot and Ankle Injuries
One-fourth of all the bones in your body are in your feet, providing both support and movement. Some of the most common fractures include ankle fractures, heel bone fractures, mid-foot fractures, pilon fractures, shinbone fractures, stress fractures of the foot and ankle, and toe fractures. The foot and ankle are prone to injury during sports activities, so we work closely with our sports medicine specialists to get you safely back in the game.
Toe Conditions and Disorders
The Diabetic Foot
The nervous system impairment that is common among diabetics makes them highly susceptible to various foot conditions. A diabetic patient can be prone to infection and other complications if his or her feet are not monitored closely for injuries and wounds.
The Arthritic Ankle
Whether caused by rheumatoid arthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, or osteoarthritis, the ankle is an especially vulnerable joint to this debilitating degenerative joint condition. Harbin Clinic foot and ankle specialists provide a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatments to patients suffering from ankle arthritis.
