Sharp, burning, tingling, or “electric” pain felt in the foot, ankle, and leg can sometimes be the result of a nerve that is compressed against a bone or firm tissue. A nerve decompression procedure “releases” this nerve, taking the excess stress off of it and relieving the source of discomfort.
Arthroscopy is a form of minimally invasive surgery in which very thin instruments are inserted into the body through very small incisions. With these tools, we are able to investigate, diagnose, and treat problems – typically at a joint.
Arthroscopic surgery is often performed to address arthritis, but can also be used for removing bone spurs, repairing ligaments, and more.
Our office has extended hours to accommodate foot and ankle traumas referred to us by existing patients and local hospitals.
While not always necessary, sometimes surgical intervention is required to realign and stabilize bones fractured in the ankle, heel, or foot. Severe sprains or tendon ruptures might also require prompt surgical intervention.
Our practice has the latest technology to evaluate and treat such injuries effectively.
Sometimes an initial surgery from the past does not turn out as well as planned. We can offer a second opinion and, in some cases, revise a surgical procedure for better results – even if it was first performed by someone else.
