If you have persistent foot pain or ankle pain, it may be time to see an expert to diagnose the root cause of your symptoms and provide effective treatment. Foot and ankle surgeons do much more than just surgery, they are medical practitioners in total foot and ankle care – and with their knowledge, training, and years of experience, you can finally say goodbye to your foot and ankle problems.
To become a foot and ankle surgeon, the doctor needs to hold an advanced degree in podiatric medicine. This involves in-depth study of the bones and soft tissues in the foot and ankle and the conditions that may affect them, including underlying health conditions and injuries. A foot and ankle surgeon can provide treatment for foot and ankle conditions of all kinds.
What Can a Foot and Ankle Surgeon Treat?
A foot and ankle surgeon can treat various common and uncommon conditions affecting the foot and ankle, including the following:
- Foot or ankle infections
- Joint pain due to foot and ankle arthritis
- Thickened skin
- Ankle sprains and strains
- Foot and ankle fractures
- Swelling and bruising
- Diabetic foot (numbness, burning, tingling, dry and cracked skin, infected wounds, ulcerations)
- Limited range of motion
- Inability of the foot to bear weight
- Foot pain in the morning or at night
- Heel pain and plantar fasciitis
- Foot deformity
A foot and ankle surgeon can provide treatment for all of the abovementioned issues and more, and they are able to treat you no matter what age you are. Do not wait any longer to make an appointment with a foot and ankle surgeon, because you will feel the difference once you receive proper medical care by a specialist.
