Foot and Ankle

“The foot is masterpiece of engineering and a work of art”, Leonardo da Vinci.

The foot is made up of 26 bones, 107 ligaments, 33 joints, and 19 muscles and tendons. The foot and ankle get a vigorous workout considering they keep us balanced and support our weight all day. Any injury or trauma to the foot deters our mobility and can be debilitating. Foot and ankle issues can be the result of stress on the joints while taking part in athletics or dance, wearing ill-fitting shoes, or because of hereditary medical conditions. 

At USF Health, our orthopaedic specialists have expertise in treating and correcting foot and ankle injuries. After a thorough evaluation, each patient is given a personalized treatment plan that might include shoe inserts, exercises, medications, and sometimes surgery. If surgery is necessary, rest assured -- we have a team of surgeons skilled in cutting edge medical interventions to meet your orthopaedic needs, as well as post surgical care and a rehabilitation plan.

  • Achilles Tendon Injury
  • Ankle Sprain and Fracture
  • Foot Fractures
  • Heel Spurs
  • Neuroma
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Osteoarthritis
