Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgery
Foot and ankle problems can affect your quality of life. They can limit your mobility and activities and force you to live with unnecessary pain. The causes of common foot and ankle problems are many and include nerve damage, aging, poor circulation, diabetes, and even poor-fitting shoes.

- Sprained ankle
- Stress fractures
- Toe fracture
- Ulcers and sores
