Specialty Care

Foot & Ankle

Issues with the foot or ankle can make it extremely difficult to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Our trusted orthopaedic specialists will assess your specific issues to determine the best surgical or non-surgical option to get you back on your feet, quite literally.

The ankle is a technically complex joint. Acting as a hinge, it is made up of several important structures — muscles, tendons, and ligaments support the ankle joint, which works in conjunction with the feet. This means over 100 bones, tendons, muscles, and ligaments form 33 joints in this very intricate anatomy.

With so many parts, it is easy to see why concerns are so common, and why it is extremely important to seek highly-specialized care. Nearly everyone will experience a foot or ankle problem in his or her lifetime. That is why we have Northern Michigan’s leading foot & ankle specialists on our team, from board-certified orthopaedic surgeons to physical therapists and orthotic professionals, working together to restore your mobility as efficiently and effectively as possible.
