Foot and ankle surgery

Free your feet from pain with private foot and ankle surgery at The Duchy Hospital in Harrogate.

Fed up with foot pain? At The Duchy Hospital in Harrogate, we offer a range of procedures to free your feet and ankles from pain, stiffness and swelling, allowing you to walk with confidence.

Book a consultation with a bones and joint specialist by scheduling an appointment online today or calling our team on 01423567136. Our specialists, also known as Orthopaedic Surgeons, will quickly get to work diagnosing the cause of your symptoms. Next, they’ll work with experts from across our hospital to create a treatment plan that is customised to your personal needs.

First, we’ll try non-invasive treatments to ease your symptoms. Pain in the foot and ankle can often be reduced through physiotherapy, pain medication, steroid injections, or a combination of such methods.

If your pain and stiffness can’t be managed via these less invasive treatments, and your quality of life is being negatively affected, then your Consultant may recommend surgery.

If surgery is advised, your Surgeon will explain what this will involve, including how to prepare for your foot or ankle operation and the possible benefits that you could experience. We want to keep you as involved and informed as possible throughout your treatment journey.

Common foot and ankle procedures we offer include:

Ankle arthroscopy starting from £5,877*

An ankle arthroscopy is a keyhole procedure to diagnose and treat problems affecting the structures inside your ankle. The operation involves making a few small incisions on the front or back of your ankle to allow an arthroscope (a thin tube with a camera) to be passed into the joint. Your Orthopaedic Surgeon will then be able to view the inside of your ankle joint on a video monitor and, if possible, repairs will be performed by inserting specialised surgical instruments into the other incisions in your ankle.

Forefoot surgery starting from £6,090*

Forefoot surgery comprises a variety of procedures, from straightening your toes to correct a deformity, to treating arthritis in your feet. Your Orthopaedic Surgeon might perform forefoot surgery to relieve pain in your feet that could be caused by bunions (bony growths on the side of your feet), a sprained metatarsal (the long bone in your foot), or bursitis, a condition that causes the bursa (a fluid-filled sac that cushions your joints) in your feet to become inflamed.

Toe fusion surgery starting from £2,424*

Toe fusion surgery can treat hallux rigidus (arthritis in your big toe) or severe pain from arthritis in your small toes by fusing together the bones of your affected joint using a metal plate or screws. This prevents the ends of your affected joint’s bones from rubbing together and causing pain. If you are suffering from a toe deformity such as hammer or claw toe where your toes point upwards, your Orthopaedic Surgeon could perform toe fusion surgery to straighten your toes.
