Foot & Ankle
Foot problems are most frequently caused by nerve damage, aging, poor blood circulation, diabetes, and infection that can result in ulcers, sores, and deformities. Feet and ankles can also be susceptible to fractures, sprains, sports injuries such as heel pain and plantar fasciitis, and other traumatic injuries.
The board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons at The Center for Bone & Joint Surgery of the Palm Beaches are proud to offer a wide range of treatments for common foot and ankle problems, including fracture repair, and ankle replacement.
Our orthopedic surgeons have the highest skills and use the latest technology to replace ankle joints that are severely affected by arthritis with artificial implants that restore motion.
If you’re suffering from painful osteoarthritis in your big toe, and it is affecting your ability to walk, we offer Cartiva joint-implant surgery. Cartiva is a synthetic cartilage implant (SCI) that replaces the damaged cartilage surface in your big toe with a smooth, load-bearing surface that relieves the pain and stiffness and restores your natural range of motion.
Diabetic Foot Care
If you have diabetes, it's extremely important to inspect your feet regularly and bring any problems or changes to your doctor's attention immediately. Diabetes can significantly affect circulation and the delicate structures of the foot.
Problems can include skin wounds that won't heal, calluses and corns, numbness, pain, swelling, infection, and deformity. For people with diabetes, foot problems are better treated quickly.
