Foot And Ankle Fractures

Foot and ankle fractures occur commonly with sports injuries due to high velocity twisting and blunt force trauma.  We typically see ankle fractures occur after twisting injuries that can cause the 2 bones in the ankle, the tibia and fibula, to break in several different patterns.  Generally speaking, stable ankle fractures can sometimes be treated nonsurgically, and unstable ankle fractures heal better longterm by realigning the fractures with screws and plates surgically.  The primary reason we surgically address ankle fractures is to try and help them heal quickly and decrease the risk of post-traumatic arthritis in the future.

Other common foot fractures that we see are calcaneal fractures that often occur after falling on your heel from a height, Lisfranc fractures that often occur in sports injuries or motor vehicle accidents, and metatarsal fractures.  The surgeons at the Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado are expertly trained to help you with all types of foot and ankle fractures both non-surgically and surgically.  Our main office is located and Dublin and Academy in Colorado Springs, and we now have a satellite office open on Thursdays in Monument to serve all of your foot and ankle needs.  Call us today at 719-488-4664, if you are having any foot and ankle problems, so we can help you today!
