When ankle pain does not go away on its own, you may need the medical attention of a specialty-trained ankle surgeon or doctor. If you are experiencing ankle pain or any of the following signs or symptoms for more than a few days, it is recommended that you see an ankle specialist:

  • Bruising and/or swelling
  • Foot issues or foot pain that is affecting your ankle
  • Heel bone pain
  • Joint instability 
  • Joint stiffness
  • Lower leg pain in addition to ankle pain
  • Pain when you move your ankle or flex your foot

Our ankle doctors and surgeons specialize in performing a multitude of treatments including nonsurgical options, such as custom orthotics, or surgical procedures, like ankle fusion surgery, ankle replacement surgery, or tendon transfer surgery.

No matter what type of treatment option is recommended for you, our medical experts will thoroughly explain your condition or injury and the treatment options available to you and address any question you may have.
