Foot and Ankle Deformity
What is a foot and ankle deformity?
Individuals with injuries or congenital conditions (that are present upon birth) may have foot and ankle deformities. Ankle fractures or other foot trauma can change the shape and function of the foot and ankle. These injuries can disrupt normal walking and make daily activities painful or nearly impossible. Conditions such as clubfoot, polio, spinal cord injuries, tendon ruptures, failed previous surgery and others can create significant limitations that make walking difficult.
How is a foot and ankle deformity treated?
If you feel you have a previous condition that requires correction to improve walking and appearance of the foot and ankle, your doctor can perform an evaluation to determine what intervention is necessary. Surgery may not always be necessary. We can only determine an exact treatment plan after a thorough evaluation.
