Foot and Ankle Specialists

The foot provides a foundation which supports the entire body and all of its movements like walking, running, and jumping. An injured foot can cause extreme pain and make daily movements virtually impossible.

The ankle is a complex joint formed at the intersection of the foot and most distal portion of your lower leg. The ankle is comprised of three lateral ligaments and a triangular deltoid ligament and is intended to support flexion and extension movements in the joint. Ankle sprains and strains are common injuries along with deterioration common with age and activity level. For foot or ankle specifics, visit the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) website's Foot & Ankle section.

If you are experiencing any foot and ankle issues, contact your physician for proper diagnosis. Our foot and ankle specialists have the education, experience, and resources vital to your care. They may refer you to an orthopaedic specialist for further evaluation and treatment.
