Please schedule an appointment to review the latest surgical or non-surgical treatments 

Ankle Fracture Surgery (click for video)

This surgical procedure is used to correct a fracture of the fibula or tibia in the ankle joint. The procedure involves attachment of a fixation plate made of stainless steel or titanium to the fibula and use of screws or fixation plate on the tibia to stabilize the bones and allow healing.

Arthroscopic Ankle Cartilage Repair (click for video)

This minimally invasive procedure is used to repair damaged cartilage in the ankle joint.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection Treatment for Achilles Tendonitis (click for video)

This non-surgical procedure is used to treat Achilles tendonitis (an inflammation of the Achilles tendon from overuse) with an injection of the patient’s own blood platelets. The concentrated platelets promote natural healing and reduction of inflammation.

Surgery for Achilles Tendon Rupture (click for video)

This surgical procedure is used to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon, the large tendon that travels down the back of the ankle. This procedure will help the tendon heal properly, restoring function to the foot and ankle.

Bunionectomy (Chevron Bunionectomy) (click for video)

This outpatient procedure is performed to correct a bunion, a deformity of the toe joint. During the procedure, the surgeon may remove excess bone and then shift the toe into proper alignment. This surgery is commonly performed with regional anesthesia.

Cheilectomy (click for video)

This surgical procedure is used to help relieve symptoms of hallux rigidus by removing bony growths on top of the big toe's main joint. This procedure improves joint movement and is most successful in patients with less severe arthritis.

Minimal Incision Toe Bone Spur Removal (click for video)

Toe bone spur removal is a quick procedure that may be performed in the doctor's office or in a surgery center.

Endoscopic Plantar Fasciotomy (click for video)

This minimally-invasive outpatient procedure is performed to relieve pain caused by chronic plantar fasciitis. This condition is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of connective tissue that travels across the bottom of the foot between the toes and the heel. This procedure may be performed with local or regional anesthesia and sedation.

Excision of Morton's Neuroma (click for video)

Morton's neuroma is an enlarged nerve, compressed or pinched between the bones and the ligament that holds them together. This procedure eases the pain by releasing pressure from the nerve or removing the nerve.

Metatarsal Fracture Fixation (Open Reduction and Internal Fixation) (click for video)

This procedure is used to correct a fracture of one or more of the long bones of the foot. During this procedure, the surgeon stabilizes the bones with hardware to allow the bones to heal properly.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis (click for video)

This non-surgical procedure is used to treat an irritation of the plantar fascia - a band of tissue that extends from the heel bone (calcaneus) to the ball of the foot - with an injection of the patient’s own blood platelets. The concentrated platelets promote natural healing and reduction of inflammation.

Radiofrequency Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis (click for video)

During this procedure, the surgeon uses a radiofrequency device called a TOPAZ microdebrider to break up scar tissue in a painfully-inflamed plantar fascia (a band of tissue at the bottom of the foot). The coblation procedure can be performed as a minimally-invasive procedure through the skin, or it can be performed as part of an open surgical procedure. This animation will show the minimally-invasive technique.

Excision of Soft Tissue Masses (click for video)

During this outpatient procedure, the physician removes a mass that has formed beneath the skin of the foot. This animation will show the removal of the most common type of soft tissue mass (a ganglion cyst). A ganglion cyst is a fluid-filled sac that is connected to a joint capsule or tendon sheath. Ganglion cysts commonly form near the ankle.

Bunionette Deformity Correction (Fifth Metatarsal Partial Resection) (click for video)

This surgical procedure is performed to correct a bunionette, a bony bump on the outer side of the foot at the base of the fifth toe. The procedure removes this excess bone growth, eliminating the bump so that the bunionette does not press painfully against shoes.

Hammertoe Correction (PIP Joint Arthroplasty)​ (click for video)

This surgical procedure is used to correct a hammertoe, a deformity of the toe that causes the toe to become permanently frozen in a bent position. During this procedure, a small piece of bone is removed to shorten the toe and allow it to straighten.
