Scope of Practice

Comprehensive orthopedic care with a focus on foot and ankle disorders.

Bunion & Hammertoe Correction

Bunion and hammertoe correction surgeries are orthopedic procedures aimed at fixing deformities of the toes, with a focus on realigning joints, straightening toes, and alleviating pain. These surgeries typically involve the repositioning of bones, adjustment of ligaments and tendons, and sometimes the removal of excess tissue. Recovery generally requires immobilization of the foot, followed by physical therapy to enhance mobility and comfort.

Complex Foot & Ankle Disorders

Complex foot and ankle disorders encompass a range of conditions that affect the structure and function of the foot and ankle, often requiring specialized medical intervention. These disorders can include severe deformities, chronic pain, arthritis, and injuries that have not responded to standard treatments. Treatment approaches may involve a combination of surgical reconstruction, physical therapy, and customized orthotics to restore mobility and alleviate pain.

Sports Injuries

Sports injuries refer to damages that occur during physical activities or athletic play, affecting muscles, bones, joints, or ligaments. Common types include sprains, strains, fractures, and dislocations, often occurring in the knees, ankles, shoulders, and elbows. Treatment varies based on severity and location but typically involves rest, physical therapy, and sometimes surgery to ensure proper healing and prevent future injuries.


he bone structure. They can range from minor hairline fractures, which may not disrupt daily activities, to severe breaks that require surgical intervention and immobilization. Treatment typically involves realigning the bone fragments, immobilizing the area with casts or braces, and physical therapy to restore strength and mobility after healing.


Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to diagnose and treat joint problems, primarily in the knees, shoulders, elbows, ankles, and hips. During the procedure, surgeons insert a small camera, called an arthroscope, into the joint, allowing them to view the joint area on a screen and perform surgery with small instruments. This technique results in shorter recovery times and less postoperative pain compared to open surgery, making it a preferred method for addressing a wide range of joint issues.

Arthritis of the Foot & Ankle

Arthritis of the foot and ankle involves inflammation and degeneration of the joints, leading to pain, swelling, and restricted movement. This condition can be caused by wear and tear over time, autoimmune diseases, or previous injuries, and it primarily affects older adults. Treatment options typically include medication to reduce pain and inflammation, physical therapy to maintain joint function, and, in severe cases, surgical intervention to correct or replace the affected joints.

Degenerative Diseases of the Foot & Ankle

Degenerative diseases of the foot and ankle refer to conditions that cause a progressive deterioration of the joint structures and function, often leading to pain, stiffness, and mobility issues. Common examples include osteoarthritis, which results from wear and tear on the joints, and tendonitis, which involves inflammation of the tendons. Treatment strategies may involve a combination of physical therapy, pain management techniques, orthotic devices, and in advanced cases, surgical intervention to restore function and alleviate symptoms.

Cortisone & PRP Injections

Cortisone and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are minimally invasive treatments used to alleviate pain and promote healing in injured or degenerated tissues. Cortisone injections are anti-inflammatory treatments that provide rapid relief from pain and swelling, often used in joints and soft tissues. In contrast, PRP injections involve using a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the natural healing process, particularly effective in treating tendon injuries and osteoarthritis.

Complex Revision Procedures of the foot & Ankle

Complex revision procedures of the foot and ankle are advanced surgical interventions designed to correct or revise unsuccessful outcomes of previous surgeries. These procedures often address issues such as improper healing, persistent pain, or complications arising from initial treatments. The goal is to restore functionality, alleviate pain, and improve alignment and stability in the foot and ankle, often involving the use of specialized surgical techniques and implants.

Total Ankle Replacements

Total ankle replacement is a surgical procedure aimed at replacing a damaged or arthritic ankle joint with an artificial implant to relieve pain and restore mobility. This procedure is typically recommended for patients with severe arthritis who have not responded well to more conservative treatments. The goal of total ankle replacement is to allow patients to return to a more active lifestyle while reducing the limitations and discomfort associated with ankle arthritis.

Upper & Lower Extremity Musculoskeletal Ailments

Upper and lower extremity musculoskeletal ailments encompass a broad range of disorders affecting the muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments of the arms and legs. These ailments can result from acute injuries, chronic overuse, degenerative diseases, or congenital conditions, leading to pain, weakness, and limited mobility. Treatment approaches vary widely but often include a combination of physical therapy, medication, orthotic supports, and potentially surgical intervention to improve function and alleviate symptoms.
