Foot and ankle surgery considers all of the 33 individual joints and more than 100 tendons and muscles that make up the foot and ankle portion of our body. With many moving parts located in such a small area, this speciality is complex with numerous common conditions.

Genetics play a large part in conditions affecting the foot and ankle, as does the tremendous continual pressure we put on the area by simply living our lives. The many muscles and tendons are constantly working to give you the necessary stability and momentum when exercising, playing sports or just walking.

Thanks to a combination of these factors, including lifestyle, foot shape and past trauma, several symptoms and conditions can develop, some more serious than others.

If you find that you are suffering from any of these common symptoms or have a history of degenerative conditions in your family, consider booking a private appointment with a specialist. Our foot and ankle consultants commonly see patients suffering from:

  • Heel pain
  • Osteoarthritis – ankle arthritis
  • Ankle sprains
  • Deformed toes – curly toes, hammertoes
  • Flat foot deformity
  • Hallux rigidus / limitus – stiff big toe
  • Hallux valgus – bunions
  • Metatarsalgia – forefoot pain
  • Midfoot arthritis
  • Sports injuries

The expert consultants will discuss the problems you're having and suggest necessary investigations for a fast and accurate diagnosis. We regularly conduct further tests for patients in their teens to patients in their 90s who are experiencing the above.

Treatment for conditions related to the foot and ankle vary, but we routinely carry out the following treatments for our patients:

  • Outpatient treatments like steroid injections
  • Surgical procedures such as ankle arthroscopy and ligament reconstruction
  • Dedicated physical therapy and podiatry care
  • High-quality rehabilitation boot technology

When you book an appointment at Ross Hall Hospital, our enquiries team will provide you with a date and time that suits you as well as all the necessary information about what to expect in your initial consultation.

During your first consultation, your consultant will discuss your concerns, what symptoms you're experiencing and assess your medical history to get a clear picture of the situation and determine the appropriate next steps.

Once they are happy that they have a good understanding of your situation, lifestyle, symptoms, possible causes and potential conditions they will conduct a thorough examination of the lower limbs. Things your consultant will look at include:

  • Alignment of the foot and ankle
  • Foot shape
  • Joint motion and strength

Once these initial tests have been completed, they may wish to carry out additional tests or scans to investigate further. Your consultant and the friendly radiography team in the imaging department will always explain the details of the scan or test being conducted for your comfort.

Depending on the scan or test needed, you'll be seen by the relevant specialist from the multidisciplinary team at Ross Hall Hospital. In some cases, it might be possible for you to have the test on the same day as your initial appointment, but usually we would schedule the test for a few days after at a time and day that suits you.

Patients visiting the foot and ankle surgery unit have access to a fully comprehensive facility with cutting-edge equipment. Our integrated approach to all conditions relating to the foot and ankle allow us to consistently provide a fast and accurate diagnosis.

These are standard tests that your foot and ankle surgery specialist may recommend:

  • MRI scan - This uses a magnetic field to create a detailed image of your lower leg.

  • CT scan - Often referred to as CAT Scans, X-rays are used to produce detailed images of your foot and ankle's internal structures.

  • Ultrasound - Uses sound waves to produce internal images.

Your consultant will then arrange a follow-up appointment to go over the results and discuss the best course of treatment. Whether this requires further testing, surgery, physical therapy or referral to another specialist within the hospital, we'll provide clarity and answer any questions you might have.

The foot and ankle surgery team at Ross Hall Hospital is supported by expert physical therapists, surgeons and radiologists who will ensure your time at our hospital is as comfortable as possible by providing a timely diagnosis and comprehensive, bespoke treatment.

At Ross Hall Hospital, our goal is to provide the best possible care while minimising the need for invasive treatment where possible. We exercise an integrated approach to all conditions affecting the foot and ankle using the latest technology, modern techniques, and experienced clinicians to efficiently and effectively treat all ailments.

Whether you are suffering from  minor sports trauma, bunions or a chronic condition such as arthritis, the friendly consultants are there to make you feel comfortable while ensuring you receive a timely diagnosis and unparalleled care.

We believe the combination of medical excellence and advanced facilities set our foot and ankle surgery unit apart and are proud to provide:
