foot & ankle surgery
Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle surgeons take care of foot and ankle injuries, sports medicine problems of the foot and ankle, deformities, arthritis, and overuse problems. Because the foot is the foundation for the rest of the musculoskeletal system, foot and ankle problems can be very troublesome. Likewise, foot and ankle problems can be challenging to treat.
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends that musculoskeletal problems of the foot and ankle be taken care of by an Orthopaedic Surgeon, because Orthopaedic Surgeons understand and treat the entire musculoskeletal system from the neck down to the feet, and because Orthopaedic Surgeons have attended an accredited medical school and trained in an accredited Orthopaedic Surgery residency. GPOA has a foot and ankle specialist who also practices general Orthopaedic Surgery for particularly complex foot and ankle problems.
