Whether itís a sprain or fracture, Achilles tendon rupture, bunions or congenital defects of the foot's intricate anatomy, foot or ankle problems can drastically affect your mobility and keep you from an active lifestyle and your everyday activities.

At Beth Israel Orthopedics, our fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeons treat the full spectrum of foot and ankle disorders, including problems such as:

  • Ankle sprains and strains
  • Simple and complex ankle fractures
  • Ankle instability
  • Overuse related injuries
  • Flatfoot
  • Foot fractures
  • Bunions
  • Hammer toe
  • Foot and ankle issues due to rheumatoid arthritis
  • Achilles Tendon Ruptures

Correct orthopedic treatment is essential to heal any injury of the foot or ankle and avoid any future problems developing. From diagnosis to rehabilitation, our foot and ankle specialists will help get you back to your regular activities.

Our foot and ankle specialists offer many treatment options for disorders of the foot and ankle, including:

  • Ice packing and rest may help with simple sprains, strains, stress fractures in the toes, and other injuries.
  • Medications, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or cortisone injections, may help to reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Foot taping or padding may be recommended for bunions, heel pain, and other conditions.
  • Physical therapy can help reduce pain from bunions or arthritis, or can be used as a strengthening program for ankle instability. Physical therapy is usually recommended following surgery.
  • Splinting, bracing, or casting may be used for sprains, strains, or fractures.
  • Surgery may be needed if pain or instability does not respond to conservative treatment. Surgery is used to treat many foot and ankle problems, including bunions, ruptured Achilles tendons, hammer toes, sprains, fractures, ankle instability and arthritis. Minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery may be used to confirm a diagnosis or perform a procedure.
