There are 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the foot, so there is a wide range of injuries and other conditions that can develop in the feet and ankles, causing significant pain and discomfort. When you are suffering from chronic pain in the foot or ankle in Crown Point, it is essential to seek orthopaedic care to restore the function of the feet sooner rather than later. MK Orthopedics can provide surgical care and rehabilitation tailored to your needs so that you are able to get back on your feet pain-free.
Putting an End to Foot and Ankle Pain
Following diagnostic procedures with imaging and physical examination of the foot and ankle, your doctor will discuss the right course of treatment. Often, minimally invasive surgery is beneficial, because it can eliminate damaged tissues and repair those that have been fractured, dislocated, or torn. In some cases, conservative treatment options may be appropriate, but more complex injuries may not respond to these therapies.
Surgery & Rehabilitation
Foot and ankle surgery and rehabilitation can spare the foot from future amputation in some situations. Even when total loss of the foot is not a potential risk, surgery can restore total function of the foot and ankle to ensure a higher quality of life and better health. Our surgical team will use advanced techniques to minimize incision size and preserve more healthy structures within the foot. Following surgery, the physical therapists at MK Orthopedics can ensure a complete recovery with a complete understanding of your case along with the convenience of receiving total care within one practice.
Offering a Compassionate Approach
Any time you are referred to a specialist, it is important that the doctor takes the time to understand your needs and your condition. At MK Orthopedics, patient experiences are of the utmost importance, so we will work to make you feel comfortable from your first consultation on. We often treat patients who have been referred from other orthopedic specialists and undergone other procedures that have not provided pain relief. With conditions of the foot and ankle, finding relief is essential, because these conditions may prevent walking as well as the most basic physical activities.
You do not need to suffer with foot and ankle pain. By contacting MK Orthopedics, you can get on track to recovery. Our team is fully dedicated to your treatment, whether you need conservative care or advanced surgical procedures.
