Your foot and ankle has 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. With all those structures, it’s no wonder millions of Americans endure foot and ankle pain each year. Some patients suffer from arthritis in the foot and ankle, while others experience sports, overuse, or traumatic injuries. Fractures, muscle and tendon strains, and ligament sprains are all common injuries treated by Hughston physicians who specialize in the foot and ankle.
Our speciality-trained orthopaedists can treat your pain nonsurgically with noninflammatory medications to reduce swelling or orthotics that support the pads, arch, or ankle joint. Your doctor may recommend a brace, custom shoes, or physical therapy as part of your treatment plan. Our foot and ankle physicians will discuss your lifestyle, your goals, and determine the best treatment to fit your needs. Furthermore, our surgeons specialize in fusion and joint replacement surgery, using state-of-the-art procedures that give you every option available for a good outcome. After surgery, under the direction of your physician, our physical therapists help you reach your full potential.
