Foot & Ankle
At Montvale Health & Wellness, we are experienced in treating foot and ankle conditions with both conservative, non-invasive treatments and newer orthopedic techniques.
Edward Harris, DPM- Podiatric Surgery & Orthopedics, is trained to treat all disorders of the foot and ankle, using a range of approaches that include surgical and non-surgical techniques.
Our team understands the complex connections between conditions of the foot and ankle, and how they relate to other parts of the body, including the knee, hip, and spine.
Foot and Ankle Conditions we treat at MHA include:
- Achilles Tendon Rupture (Tear)
- Foot and Ankle Fractures
- Heel Bone, Toe, Forefoot Fractures
- Lisfranc (Midfoot) Injury
- Sprained Ankle
- Turf Toe
- Flatfoot in Adults & children
- Arthritis of the Foot and Ankle
- Talotarsal Displacement
- Bunions, Corns, ingrown Toenails
- Claw Toe
- Diabetic (Charcot) Foot
- Hammer Toe, Stiff Big Toe (Hallux Rigidus)
- Heel Spur Syndrome
- Morton’s Neuroma
- Plantar Fasciitis and Bone Spurs
- Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction
- Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
Patients may seek out a foot and ankle specialist for proper diagnosis and treatment of heel pain (resulting from a condition like plantar heel fasciitis), nerve disorders (such as tarsal tunnel syndrome), or other injuries. This is particularly important for athletes and other active people who engage in sports, a population that commonly experiences foot and ankle maladies.
A vast majority of foot and ankle conditions do not require surgical intervention. Some disorders, particularly in athletes, may be solved by adaption of footwear and/or the use of orthotics. Anti-inflammatory medication may help those with arthritis. Physical therapy may also be prescribed to relieve symptoms and provide patients with strengthening exercises to support the surrounding muscles of any vulnerable areas in the foot or ankle.
Although most conservative approaches work for many disorders of the foot and ankle, when surgery is indicated, our team is here to guide you through the process. For conditions ranging from hammertoes to bone spurs, our experienced surgeons use the most up to date techniques and state-of-the-art equipment.
