Foot and ankle surgery is a subspecialty of orthopaedics and podiatry that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders affecting the foot and ankle.
Foot and ankle surgeons specialise in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and nerves in the feet and ankles. They can treat various foot and ankle injuries, perform reconstructive surgeries, provide revision surgeries, and offer treatments for arthritis.
The primary goal of foot and ankle care is to restore function and facilitate a quick recovery, allowing patients to return to their daily activities and work. Comprehensive foot and ankle treatment is provided in a clinical setting that is caring and responsive to the current and long-term needs of patients.
