One foot has 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 tendons, muscles and ligaments. As a result, foot problems can be complex and have a wide range of causes. One symptom almost every foot problem shares is pain.
Our feet take a beating over the course of our lives, and common problems often develop:
- Bunions and hammertoes
- Flat feet or high arches
- Neuroma and peripheral nerve injury
- Plantar fasciitis, tendon and ligament injury
But foot problems can also be caused by diabetes, peripheral vascular disease and nervous system disorders.
Because of this, we recommend you first talk with your primary care doctor who can help you determine whether you should see a specialist for your foot problems.
If you are ready to see a podiatrist or an orthopedist, we offer fellowship-trained foot surgeons who are skilled in a wide range of treatment options.
Our specialists usually start with conservative treatment: medication to ease pain, corrective orthotic inserts or custom-made shoes and/or physical therapy. When needed, they perform surgery to correct persistent foot problems, including fusions, bunionectomy, neuroma surgery, metatarsal surgery, heel surgery and more.
