Our feet and ankles are used far more often than other parts of the body. With its complex anatomy, it is not uncommon for minor to severe/traumatic injuries to occur, resulting in a need for surgery.

WHAT IS IT?

Foot and ankle trauma occurs from various types of injury that we frequently see, including lacerations, burns, punctures, insect bites, sports-related injury, combat wounds, falling off of a ladder, car accidents, bicycle accidents, getting one’s foot run over, gun shot wounds, being kicked by a large animal, fractures, and more.

One example of unrecognized foot and ankle trauma that has occurred in diabetic patients with neuropathy is Charcot foot deformity.
