Treating Orthopaedic
Foot and Ankle Problems

Your orthopedic surgeon will first evaluate your foot or ankle pain using in-office exams and medical imaging tests, such as X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and ultrasounds. To devise the most effective treatment plan, they may collaborate with other healthcare providers, including your primary care physician and physical therapist. After accurately diagnosing the cause of your discomfort and understanding its functional limitations, the surgeon will create a tailored treatment plan that considers your specific needs and lifestyle, ensuring you receive the most appropriate care.

Non-Surgical Treatment

Typically, orthopedic surgeons exhaust all non-surgical options before opting for surgery. Non-surgical treatments and therapies for foot and ankle conditions include:

  • Bracing, splinting, or casting the affected area
  • Utilizing supportive aids such as crutches or other assistive devices
  • Administering anti-inflammatory medications or steroid injections
  • Recommending lifestyle changes or activity modifications

These conservative approaches aim to alleviate symptoms and promote healing without invasive procedures.

Surgical treatments

Surgical treatments for foot and ankle conditions are chosen based on the type, location, and extent of the injury or condition. Some surgical options include:

  • Achilles tendon repair: Reconnect the calf muscle and heel bone if the Achilles tendon ruptures due to injury, overuse, or degeneration.
  • Limb salvage: An alternative to amputation for malignant tumors, this procedure removes and replaces diseased bone using metal implants or bone grafts.
  • Total ankle replacement: Damaged parts of the three ankle joint bones are replaced with specialized metal and plastic implants, providing pain relief and maintaining or restoring joint function.
  • Foot and ankle reconstruction: This surgery may involve repairing or transferring tendons, implanting a prosthetic joint, removing a tumor, or manipulating bones through cutting, grafting, or fusing to restore foot and/or ankle function.

If you experience persistent ankle or foot pain that doesn’t improve within 2–3 days, it’s advisable to consult a doctor. Seek immediate medical attention if you notice severe swelling, deformity, open wounds, fever greater than 100° F (37.8° C), or cannot bear weight on the affected foot. These could be signs of a more serious condition requiring prompt evaluation and treatment.

Foot and ankle care involves preventing, diagnosing, and treating conditions affecting the feet and ankles.

Diagnosing foot and ankle pain or injuries typically involves a physical examination, assessment of medical history, and evaluation of symptoms.
