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.

  • Hip & Knee

    “I've been a patient here for almost 20 years. I've had both knees and both hips replaced. I started here because they were the only doctors in town that understood how painful my knees were. At 45, it's not usual to have your knees replaced. I'm 64 now. I can't say enough good things about […]

    “I had major foot surgery on December 4, 2019 by Dr. Reichard. I had surgery three years ago on my other foot for the same reason and the same difficult surgery. The doctor I had before had retired before I was ready to go through this surgery again. I had great reservations about using a […]
