Bunions (Hallux Valgus)
If you are noticing bulging or feeling pain where your big toe connects to your foot you may have a bunion. These are much more common in women than in men, which has caused speculation that high heels or narrow-toed shoes may be to blame. Family history is considered the best predictor.
Depending on your individual foot deformity you may or may not require surgery. It is important to get your bunion treated by a specialist so that it does not become arthritic or restrict your activity level.
The ankle joint is a complex structure that includes three bones: the tibia, the fibula, and the talus. When the cartilage in between these bones wears out, patients often experience pain, loss of motion, and swelling.
Ankle arthritis often occurs because of a previous ankle trauma or fracture. There are a number of treatment options available for ankle arthritis including non-surgical treatments (therapy and injections, for example), ankle fusion, and ankle replacement.
Flat Foot Deformity
A flat foot deformity occurs when the posterior tibial tendon fails. This can be a pediatric deformity or an adult acquired deformity. Depending on the stage and severity of the deformity it can become a debilitating problem. Flat foot often causes an altered gait, commonly resulting in ankle, knee, hip, and back pain or problems.
Our foot and ankle team will recommend treatment options specific to your conditions and goals. Conservative, non-surgical options are recommended first, with surgery suggested only when physical therapy or injections do not achieve the desired results.
Morton’s Neuroma is a benign thickening of nerve tissue leading to the toes that occurs as the nerve passes under the ligament connecting the metatarsals in the forefoot. A typical symptom of Morton’s Neuroma is a persistent pain in the ball of the foot, or the feeling of “walking on a marble”.
It is very common for Morton’s Neuroma to be treated without surgery. If non-surgical treatments do not work for you, it is possible to resect a small portion of the nerve and release the tissue around the nerve. Surgical intervention is only recommended once conservative treatments have failed.
The foot and ankle team will help you to decide the best course of action in treating your foot or ankle injury with or without surgery. If you end up needing surgery, our orthopaedic surgeons can perform a number of different surgical interventions including:
- Total ankle replacement
- Fracture care
- Foot and ankle arthroscopy
- Foot reconstruction
- Ankle reconstruction
- Tendon repair
- Ligament repair
