Fort Lauderdale Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine specializes in treating conditions that affect the foot and ankle.
Common Conditions of the Foot and Ankle
Together, the foot and ankle work together to provide balance and movement in the human body. While the ankle consists of three bones, it is attached by muscles, tendons, and ligaments that connect the foot to the leg. There are a number of conditions that can affect The ankle, hindfoot, midfoot and forefoot. At Fort Lauderdale Ortho, we take care to carefully diagnose the cause of your discomfort or pain and provide appropriate treatment to maintain the use of your feet, ankles, and surrounding parts of the body.
Common Procedures of the Foot and Ankle
Treatment for conditions or injuries of the foot and ankle can be complex. While physical examination is often the starting point, your doctor can determine if further diagnostic tests, such as x-rays, are needed for accurate diagnosis. Following that, common treatments for many conditions include physical therapy or surgery.
