Charcot Reconstruction

A Charcot foot and ankle deformity typically occurs in people who have neuropathy.  There is still a lot of research going on to try and discover exactly why this happens to some patients, but generally there is some traumatic incident that causes the foot and ankle to fracture and become unstable. 

Charcot neuroathropathy can lead to instability and deformites in the foot and ankle that either make walking very difficult or lead to wounds and ulcers of the lower extremities.  When bracing fails to help patients adequately, surgical reconstruction of the foot and ankle can help allow people to ambulate better.
