http://www.advancedfootankle.com One of the common injuries we see are foot and ankle fractures. Some fractures of the foot, such as a fifth metatarsal fracture or Jones fracture, are notoriously slow to heal. Some foot and ankle fractures may be only a hairline crack or a fracture where the sides are well opposed or close together. These types of fractures are often treated conservatively with immobilization and a boot or a cast. But sometimes a fracture may be malaligned or have a gap between the edges, and it could involve a dislocation of the joint. These more extensive fractures require surgical intervention to realign and fixate the broken bones to help them heal.
We specialize in surgical repair of all foot and ankle fractures, including the use of the latest technologies and therapies to increase healing time. We also treat stress fractures. A stress fracture occurs when an area on a bone takes increased or undue stress or pressure, causing a weakening of the bone which eventually causes a fracture through the bone. Dull, aching pain in your foot that has been present for weeks or even months and doesn’t go away could be a stress fracture. We offer comprehensive care for all types of foot and ankle fractures. Our goal is to get you healed and back on your feet so you can enjoy the activities you love. Please visit our website or contact our office for a consultation with one of our specialists.
