foot & ankle
We punish our feet constantly – in marathons and volleyball games, with too-tight shoes and high heels, on ski slopes and city pavements. Just walking around the home or office takes about 9,000 steps daily. That adds up to about 115,000 miles in a lifetime. We do all this to our feet, and more, and that puts a lot of strain on one of the most complex, intricate and finely tuned parts of our body. Small wonder, then, that the feet and ankles suffer a lot of injuries and conditions.
If your feet or ankles need medical attention, then Bon Secours Orthopaedic Institute is the right place to come for advice and care. We treat a wide range of problems that occur at every stage of life. Our physicians not only handle fractures but also other conditions that affect the heels, toes and tendons.
In many cases, feet and ankle issues can be easily corrected with early intervention and simple treatments. Sometimes, the solution is as simple as wearing more comfortable shoes. Of course, our capable staff can address even the most challenging situations and, when needed, conduct surgery supported by the most recent advances in medical research and technology.
