Foot and Ankle Surgery

Anyone who has experienced foot and ankle pain can attest to how inconvenient it is when you can’t move around freely. The freedom of movement is something we take for granted until pain strikes. Diagnosing your foot and ankle pain can prove difficult due to the complex structure of the feet and ankles. Trust an IBJI orthopedic specialist to accurately find the lower body issues you’re experiencing and regain your strength, flexibility and durability.

When is Foot and Ankle Surgery Necessary?

Foot and ankle surgery may become necessary when non-surgical alternatives are ineffective. The most common reasons for foot and ankle surgery originate from various types of arthritis or deformities patients may be born with.

Ankle arthroscopy is typically the go-to technique for all orthopedic surgeries, including foot and ankle procedures. The surgeon makes a small incision on the affected area and uses small surgical tools and a fiber-optic camera to view where damage must be treated. Recovery time after foot or ankle arthroscopy is about four to six weeks after completion of the surgery. Our dedicated foot and ankle surgeons at the Illinois Bone and Joint Institute embrace the latest technology and techniques to put patients back on their feet as soon as possible.
