Foot & Ankle Services

Specialists who Get You Back on your Feet

Foot & AnkleInjuries to the foot and ankle happen frequently and can seriously impact your quality of life. Illnesses like arthritis and diabetes can also take a serious toll on feet and ankles. Whether you are suffering from a foot or ankle fracture, have a tendon tear, or need a total ankle replacement due to arthritis, our foot and ankle specialists have the latest treatment techniques to help. They are board certified orthopedic specialists with fellowship training in diagnosing and treating foot and ankle problems. With a comprehensive multi-disciplinary approach, we help you get back in motion as quickly as possible.

Total Ankle Replacement Surgery

For people with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis who have been suffering with ankle pain and a lack of mobility, ankle replacement surgery (or ankle arthroplasty) is sometimes the answer. Some patients have already had an ankle fusion (arthrodesis), but then the ankle can’t move normally. Total ankle replacement surgery removes arthritic areas in the ankle joint and replaces them with implants. There are a number of these FDA-approved ankle replacement implants available, and our specialists are trained in all of them. We are experts who can help you decide whether a total ankle replacement can relieve your ankle pain, restore your range of motion, and return you to walking more normally.

Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Surgery

In some situations, like complicated diabetic foot problems, people need major reconstructive foot surgery. Our foot and ankle surgeons team with expert vascular surgeons, podiatrists, and orthopedic trauma surgeons when needed to help restore maximum function. With the level of experience and expertise that can only be found in a Level I trauma surgery center like ours, the most grave limb salvage cases from across Northern Connecticut are sent to our foot and ankle specialists.
