Common Conditions of the foot & Ankle

Ligament Sprains and Tears

Our specialists often see issues of sprains and tears in the ligaments of the feet in athletes and other active individuals. Sprains typically only require minor intervention, while a partial or full tear can require surgical treatment.

Ankle & Foot Trauma

Injury to the foot or ankle can cause significant and lasting damage that requires careful attention from a specialist such as Dr. Theodore.

Achilles' Tendon

As one of the most important structures within the foot, and the largest tendon in the entire body, the Achilles tendon can lead to severe pain if it develops tendonitis, becomes torn, or is ruptured.

Heel Pain

Many patients describe issues of pain in the back of their foot at the heel, which most often relates to an underlying medical condition such as bursitis, a fracture, plantar fasciitis, and more.

Plantar Fasciitis

There is a particular tissue of the foot known as plantar fascia that can become inflamed, resulting in significant pain whenever pressure is applied.

Courses of Treatment We Typically Recommend

By seeking treatment early on when your symptoms appear, the specialists located at our state-of-art the facilities in Boston, are able to provide patients with quality care for a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions.

Our office staff utilizes many modern advancements in microscopic and endoscopic surgical procedures to ensure that the diagnostic and treatment processes are completed in the most efficient and effective ways possible. Many of the conditions can be treated using one of the following treatment methods:

Arthroscopy

An arthroscopic procedure is beneficial to both diagnosing as well as treating conditions of the foot or ankle. 

Arthroscopic surgery involves making a very small incision, where a probe equipped with a medical grade camera is then placed and guided to give Dr. Theodore a clear view at the internal structures of the foot. Your physician may recommend an arthroscopy of the foot or ankle if you suffer from one of the following conditions:

  • Impingement
  • Bone spurs
  • Talar dome lesions
  • Loose bodies

Ligament Repair

For injuries involving a partial or complete ligament tear in the foot, our specialists will often recommend a minimally invasive surgery to reconnect the ligament. Ligament repair is most often used to address:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Fixation of navicular
  • Metatarsal fractures (Jones fracture)
  • Severe turf toe and sesamoid injuries
