There are many reasons for ankle surgery, such as injuries, congenital defects, and degenerative diseases that lead to ankle deformities. As a result of these conditions, the ankle bone structure may need realignment through surgical procedures to reduce pain, restore mobility, and lessen difficulties walking. The type of ankle surgery necessary varies from condition to condition, but most are done as outpatient procedures. The surgery may involve removal of the deformity as well as realignment. Temporary and/ or permanent fixation devices can be required internally and externally for the ankle to keep proper alignment post-surgery and in the future. The doctor will advise the patient on the recovery process and duration, as well as appropriate home care and physical therapy to restore mobility and strength.

On my first appointment, Dr. Green and I discussed how to get me back to my once-active lifestyle. He quickly arranged for ESWT, and after just […]
Outstanding ‘customer service’ from the moment I enter the office to the completion of the visit. P. S.
We live 7500 miles away overseas and it was easy for me to get an appointment, get my foot checked and get a prescription for a new AFO. I suffer from RSD and the staff treated me gently and so did Dr Green. I appreciate having been able to set everything up ahead of time […]
Dr. Jameson is extremely personable, as are all of the nurses and front office staff that I’ve interacted with. I appreciate that Dr. Jameson seems to have a fairly conservative approach when it comes to surgery versus preventative care. During my visit, she was very focused on what we could do to prevent my feet […]
