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.
SIGNS & SYMPTOMS
Our specialists are available to treat all variations of traumatic injuries. Other reasons for foot and ankle trauma treatment include chronic pain, posttraumatic pain, arthritic deformity, non-healing wounds, and non-healing injuries that occurred a significant amount of time prior. In some emergency cases the skin could be broken over the bone or joint and need an immediate evaluation.
