When your feet or ankles are experiencing pain or not working like they used to, your entire body can suffer. Our orthopedic team contains the skill to properly diagnose and treat your condition. Centerpoint Medical Center has all the assistance and support you’ll need on the road to getting back on your feet.

Our team of experts effectively diagnose and treat the following conditions:

Foot

  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Tendonitis (inflammation of the cord attaching muscle to bone)
  • Cartilage and ligament damage
  • Strains, sprains and fractures
  • Flat feet to high arches
  • Sesamoid injuries (affecting two small bones beneath the big toe joint)
  • Hammertoe (a condition that causes the toe to bend down at the middle joint, forcing the middle toe joint to rise up)
  • Bunions (the big toe points toward the second toe, causing a bump on the inside of the foot near the big toe)
  • Plantar fasciitis (inflammation of the flat band of tissue that connects your heel bone to your toes)
  • Fibroma (nodule on the bottom of the foot) or fibromatosis (involves the skin and the muscle, and sometimes nerves and arteries)

Ankle

  • Arthritis (joint pain and inflammation)
  • Tendonitis (inflammation of the cord attaching muscle to bone)
  • Achilles tendinitis (inflammation of heel to calf tendon)
  • Ankle sprain (stretched or torn ankle ligament)
  • Fracture (small crack in ankle bone)

Depending on your condition and needs, your treatment may include:

  • Physical therapy - to help you get back to walking more smoothly.
  • Surgery - such as fusion (joining two or more bones together in order for them to heal into one piece) or reconstruction of the ankle or foot.
  • Arthroscopic treatment - using camera integrated tools that can gain a visual of your bone and tissue.
