Foot and ankle injuries can affect your quality of life, limiting your movement and restricting your mobility. At Dignity Health’s Sacramento area hospitals, our foot and ankle specialists perform a wide range of surgical procedures to get you back on your feet as soon as possible.
Foot and Ankle Conditions We Treat
Often caused by improper foot function, foot and ankle pain can be debilitating to an active lifestyle. Common foot problems that we treat include:
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Ankle fractures
- Ankle sprains
- Foot fractures
- Heel pain/spurs
- Morton's neuroma
Foot Surgery: What to Expect
Foot surgeries we perform include:
- Achilles tendon surgery
- Bunion and hammertoe removal
- Corn surgery
- Heel spur surgery
Ruptured or torn Achilles tendon injuries are common among runners and those who lead an active lifestyle. Surgery is often the best option for repair. During this procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in the back of the foot and stitches the torn ligament back together, easing the patient's pain.
For patients suffering from heel spurs, bunions, corns or hammertoes, removal surgery is a solid option for pain relief.
Ankle Surgery: What to Expect
Ankle surgeries we perform include:
- Ankle fusion surgery
- Ankle replacement surgery
- Surgery for severe ankle sprains
Ankle fusion surgery may be the answer for patients with ankle pain. During this procedure, the surgeon fuses the ankle bones together, easing ankle aches caused by misalignment, osteoarthritis or other underlying conditions.
Ankle replacement is another options for patients with ankle pain. During this procedure, the surgeon replaces the existing ankle bone with an implant and fuses the surrounding bones together using a bone graft.
