Ankle Treatments at Rothman Orthopaedic Institute

The Foot and Ankle Department at Rothman Orthopaedic Institute features a full spectrum of foot and ankle treatment options (both surgical and non-operative) for our patients.

Why is having a diverse range of treatments so important for ankle patients? Quite simply, because ankle care is distinctly not one-size-fits-all.

Ankle Conditions

The type of care patients need will depend upon a number of factors, such as the patient’s medical history, age, and level of activity. Chief among these considerations is the type of ankle condition or injury you have experienced.

Ankle issues may result from a variety of causes. Likewise, these injuries may affect diverse types of patients. Older patients often deal with degenerative ankle conditions that result from years of gradual wear-and-tear on the musculoskeletal components of the foot and ankle. Ankle arthritis is especially prevalent among seniors, but posttraumatic arthritis (following an ankle injury) and autoimmune arthritis varieties (such as rheumatoid arthritis) commonly affect patients of all ages.

Younger, active patients are particularly prone to traumatic ankle injuries, ranging from sprains and ruptures of connective tissues (such as Achilles tendon ruptures) to ankle fractures.

At Rothman Orthopaedic Institute, we specialize in the treatment of foot and ankle conditions of all kinds, including:

Many of the conditions listed above do not require surgical treatment. Whenever possible, our physicians prioritize non-operative care and therapies to treat ankle issues. These range from physical therapy and strength training to medications and steroidal injections.

Foot and Ankle Surgeries

For certain ankle injuries and conditions, surgery represents the most effective means of restoring full orthopaedic health. Listed below are some of the ankle procedures that our surgeons specialize in.

These are just some of the ankle treatments featured at Rothman Orthopaedic Institute.

Which operation is best for you? In order to answer that question, a medical examination by one of our qualified specialists is needed. Once the nature of your ankle issue is diagnosed, you will be paired with the specialist who is most ideally-suited to address your condition or injury. They will compose a personalized treatment and recovery plan and determine what treatment option (surgical or otherwise) will be the most effective in your particular case.

Foot and Ankle Specialists at Rothman Orthopaedic Institute

Our Foot and Ankle Specialty Department is home to one of the most qualified and exceptionally skilled teams of physicians in orthopaedic medicine. Included in our team are nine foot and ankle surgeons, each with diverse areas of expertise.

Foot and Ankle Surgeons:

If surgery is necessary, you will want to be seen by a team of specialists who can properly diagnose the issue and develop a treatment plan to get you back to an active, healthy lifestyle as quickly as possible. However, for many patients, surgery will not be necessary.

In addition to our surgical team, our Foot and Ankle Specialty Department includes ten musculoskeletal podiatry specialists.

Musculoskeletal Podiatry Specialists:

Many patients are unfamiliar with musculoskeletal podiatry. This specialized field of orthopaedic medicine is specifically aimed at treating issues that affect the structure and function of the bones, muscles, and connective tissues of the feet. Musculoskeletal podiatrists perform gait analysis and physical examinations and may prescribe treatments such as steroidal injections, stretches and physical therapy, orthotic interventions, preventive care plans, and more.

Would your condition be better treated by an orthopaedic surgeon or a musculoskeletal podiatry specialist? This question can only be answered by visiting a foot and ankle specialist for a diagnostic examination.

At Rothman Orthopaedic Institute, patients have access to both the best foot & ankle surgeons and the most qualified musculoskeletal podiatry specialists.

  • Cartilage Restoration Institute

    This is a center where patients can go to have their disabled joint biological resurfaced, realigned, and stabilized without having the joint replaced by artificial materials such as metal and plastic. It is well known that the outcomes of patients under the age of 50 undergoing artificial joint replacement are not as good as we would like. Therefore we feel the future of Orthopaedics is to try to restore a joint back to its original anatomy by realignment, ligament reconstruction, and cartilage restoration.
