Foot and Ankle
Footbridge physicians examine, diagnose and create a treatment plan that will meet the individual needs of the patient, with the ultimate goal of restoring mobility and function.
Footbridge is home to some of the best foot & ankle physicians in the world.
The foot and ankle form a complex structure containing 26 bones and more than 30 joints. When an injury or chronic condition disturbs the normal functioning of any of these bones or joints, the result may be pain, muscle weakness and limited mobility. Foot and ankle injuries are common in all age groups and can occur acutely (while participating in any activity – including walking), or develop over a period of time.
Given the complex nature of the foot and ankle, integrated care and expertise are especially important when treating any foot and ankle-related injury or condition. Footbridge offers a range of treatment options, from non-operatvie care (including physiotherapy, footwear recommendations and orthotics), to the latest surgical procedures for more complex problems.
