Foot & Ankle
Common Surgical Treatments & Pricing
While not all achilles ruptures or tears necessitate surgery, those that do require a surgeon to stitch the tendon back together. In cases where the tendon has degenerated, the damaged portions will be removed and the remainder of the tendon stitched together. Severely damaged tendons may need to be entirely replaced, therefore it is important to address your injury as quickly as possible to ensure you receive the care you need.
Ankle arthroscopy can be used as a diagnostic tool or be used to treat a variety of ankle conditions. The procedure is minimally invasive and seeks to reduce ankle pain and overall function. The procedure can be used to treat ailments such as infection, synovitis, anterior or posterior ankle impingement, arthro-fibrosis, and many others.
Bunionectomy is a surgical procedure that corrects a deformity of the area surrounding the big toe. Bunions are a bony outgrowth located around the joint at the bottom of the big toe. These outgrowths are made up of bone, soft tissue, and are
usually a result of inflammation. Bunion removal not only helps patients fit into their shoes more easily and comfortably, but it also aims to alleviate their pain and inflammation.
Broström Ligament Reconstruction
A Broström ligament reconstruction is an operation performed on the ligaments that lie on the lateral side (outside) of the ankle. The procedure is used to restore the native tension of the ligaments following an ankle sprain. Thus, the procedure aims to address and resolve ankle instability. It is important to note that not all ankle sprains require surgical intervention. Therefore, it is important for patients to consult with an orthopedic specialist following their injury.
Hammertoe is a condition that is often caused from high heel shoes or shoes with narrow toe boxes. The condition causes a deformity in the middle joint of the toes that is painful and decreases joint mobility. There are two forms of hammertoes: flexible and fixed. The joint of a flexible hammertoe remains mobile, and thus the orthopedic surgeon may opt to perform a tendon transfer procedure to resolve the issue. A fixed hammertoe, on the other hand, is entirely frozen. For this condition, there are two possible surgical interventions: releasing the involved ligaments and tendons or joint fusion. Should you be experiencing signs of this condition, it is important to visit a specialist and explore your treatment options early.
