Various problems can occur with the foot and ankle, and such problems can really hamper mobility.  Degenerative tendon issues, arthritis, nerve entrapment, or deformities such as bunions and hammertoes can limit the ability to walk, exercise, or even wear shoes comfortably.  However, with proper diagnosis and treatment these issues can be managed to enable a full return to function.  Sometimes surgery is needed, but often shoe wear modifications or a simple medication may be all that is necessary.  Our orthopedic surgeons are trained to address these problems of the foot and ankle to get you moving again, leaving the pain and disability behind.
