Custom foot orthotics are designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look similar to insoles, but are biomedical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot while you walk. We understand that everyone is different, which is why custom foot orthotics are made just for you.
Surgical Corrections of Foot Disorders
In most cases, invasive methods are not necessary to correct many foot disorders. Though in more extreme conditions, surgery may be required. The need for surgery will depend on the severity of the condition, the amount of pain the patient is experiencing, and the patient’s past response to various treatments.
Reconstructive Foot And Ankle Surgery
Surgery on the foot and/or ankles may be required in severe cases of breaks or fractures to reset the bones. Our doctors will carefully review your case and advise you on your treatment options.
Treatments for broken bones in the foot and ankle typically include rest, NSAIDs, and a cast or brace. Depending on the severity of the injury, corrective surgery may be needed to secure the bones in place for proper alignment.
It is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible if you suspect your foot or ankle is fractured or broken so treatment can begin right away.
Since nearly one-fourth of the bones in our body are in our feet, fractures of the foot are common and rarely debilitating. There are two types of fractures. A stress fracture typically occurs in the space between the toes and middle of the foot, usually as a result of a physical activity gone awry. These fractures are only on the surface of the bone. General bone fractures extend through the bone. These injuries are usually caused by trauma to the foot.
Depending on the fracture and placement, different treatments will be discussed. Foot fractures typically heal on their own, although more serious cases may require surgery.
It is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible if you suspect your foot is fractured so treatment can begin right away.

There are three bones and two joints in each ankle. Breaking or fracturing an ankle can mean breaking or fracturing any or multiple bones, as well as tearing and stretching of ligaments and tissues that surround them.
Broken and fractured ankles are typically caused by falls, car accidents, or sports-related trauma. Since severe sprains can sometimes hide symptoms of a broken or fractured bone, it is very important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after a foot injury.
Symptoms of a broken or fractured ankle include bruising, swelling, severe pain, the inability for the ankle to bear weight, tenderness, discoloration, and/or deformity.
Treatments typically include a cast or brace. Depending on the severity of the injury, corrective surgery may be needed to secure the bones in place for proper alignment.
