Our fellowship-trained orthopedic foot and ankle surgeons and sports medicine doctors evaluate and treats a broad range of orthopedic foot and ankle conditions. Our experts will thoroughly examine your feet for structural damage and can determine if other muscle groups are contributing to your pain. Some foot and ankle injuries may be treated with non-surgical options such as physical therapy, rest or bracing while other lower extremity issues may require foot and ankle surgery.
