Times You May Need Foot Surgery

No one wants to hear the word "surgery." But, sometimes it's necessary when more conservative treatments don't manage your problem. At Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado in Colorado Springs, CO, podiatric surgery is a specialty of Dr. Jordan Cameron and Dr. Matthew Hinderland. They are highly qualified in all kinds of in-patient and out-patient foot and ankle procedures. Rest assured you'll be in good hands.

Foot and ankle function

It's critical to your overall health, well-being and mobility. Your feet and ankles are amazingly complex, bearing your body weight and the immense pressures of walking, running, dancing, playing sports and much more. Throughout life, your feet and ankles literally carry you tens of thousands of miles, says the American Podiatric Medical Association.

Just like any body part, your lower extremities are subject to injury, congenital and acquired defect, malfunctions of the skin, bone, nails and connective tissues and poor circulation. At their podiatry practice in Colorado Springs, CO, Dr. Cameron and Dr. Hinderland recommend yearly foot examinations for adults and more frequent office visits for people with diabetes and circulatory problems. Preventive care wards off serious foot health problems and manages chronic ones.
