Ankle Surgery

In some situations, our podiatrists may recommend foot or ankle surgery to resolve deformities in the ankle and the surrounding bone structures. When this happens, you need to turn to a foot specialist, such as our foot and ankle clinic in the Chicago area. Our ankle surgeons are ready to provide you with the treatment that is most likely to give you the best results.

Illnesses, Defects and Injuries Can Cause Issues

Deformities of the ankle are typically caused by changes due to aging or other life circumstances, birth defects or injuries. When you see our podiatrists in Chicago, Gurnee or Fox Lake, IL, we will examine your foot and ankle to help determine the cause of your problems and suggest the best ways to resolve them.

A number of medical conditions can lead to deformities of the ankle. These can include rheumatoid arthritis, neuromuscular conditions, and diabetes. Patients will likely begin to experience difficulty walking and associated pain. Not only will our surgeons make a suggestion for ankle surgery to correct these issues, but we can help you determine the best course of treatment for your condition. We will work with your regular doctor to come up with the best solution for your issues so you can live without foot and ankle pain.

Foot and Ankle Surgery Can Help

If necessary, we will recommend a surgical procedure to realign the ankle. Our foot surgeon will use external or internal fixation devices to permanently or temporarily align the foot or ankle as part of the healing process. When you work with our foot doctor, you can rest assured we will handle the problems you have with care and appropriate treatment to give you the greatest relief. After your procedure, we will carefully instruct you in after-care so you can heal properly and enjoy a pain-free life.
