Foot & Ankle

The human foot combines mechanical complexity and structural strength. The ankle serves as foundation, shock absorber, and propulsion engine. The foot can sustain enormous pressure – as much as several tons over the course of a one-mile run and provides flexibility and resiliency. The foot and ankle contain 26 bones 33 joints; and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments as well as a network of blood vessels, nerves, skin, and soft tissue. These components work together to provide the body with support, balance, and mobility. When the foot and/or ankle is injured, it often requires highly specialized treatment. The physicians at Orthopedic Sports Enhancement Center provide information, diagnosis, and comprehensive foot and ankle care with specialized treatment including surgical and non-surgical for a variety of foot and ankle problems, preventative diabetic foot care, diabetic wound care, trauma, foot deformities, fractures, arthritis and reconstructive surgery of the foot and ankle.
