Your feet first at Healthmark Foot and Ankle are a priority when it comes to foot and ankle surgery.  

Ankle and Foot SurgeryThe foot and ankle are complex structures made up of over 100 bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles that work together to provide support, stability, and mobility to the body. 

Deformed toes, misaligned or overgrown bones, irritated nerves—all of these concerns may be causing you daily foot pain or even restricting your mobility and activities. Surgery is not always the only answer, and that is why you need to speak with your Healthmark physician to discuss treatment options. 

Foot and ankle surgery may be necessary to correct a variety of conditions, including:

  • Fractures
  • Arthritis
  • Bunions
  • Chronic Nerve Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Ankle Sprains
  • Achilles Tendonitis or Tear
  • Neuromas
  • Hammertoes
  • Reconstructive Surgery

Foot and ankle surgery may involve a variety of techniques, including:

  1. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique using a small camera and instruments to access and repair damaged joints.
  2. Osteotomy: A surgical procedure that involves cutting and realigning the bones in the foot or ankle.
  3. Fusion is a surgical procedure that involves permanently joining two or more bones.
  4. Tendon repair: A surgical procedure that involves reattaching a torn or damaged tendon to the bone.
  5. Joint replacement: A surgical procedure involving replacing a damaged joint with an artificial one.

When surgery is the best option for your condition, you can rest knowing that Healthmark Foot and Ankle Associates are highly trained and professional and want the best results for you.
