Foot and ankle surgery is usually considered after less invasive treatment options have been exhausted. These might include:

If you are advised to have surgery, your Orthopaedic Surgeon at The Highfield Hospital will discuss what this will involve, including how you could benefit from surgery and what to expect from your recovery.

At The Highfield Hospital in Rochdale, our most common foot and ankle procedures include:

Ankle arthroscopy starting from £5,877*

An ankle arthroscopy uses a few small incisions into your ankle to allow an arthroscope (a thin tube containing a camera) to be passed into the joint. This arthroscope allows your Orthopaedic Surgeon to inspect the structures inside your ankle and diagnose any potential problems. Certain issues can also be treated during the arthroscopy. This will be done using specialized surgical instruments that are also inserted through very small incisions.

Forefoot surgery starting from £4,505*

Forefoot surgery can include many different surgical procedures, depending on your diagnosis and the condition of your feet. For example, forefoot surgery can be used to remove bunions (bony lumps on the side of your big toe), correct any toe deformities, and relieve pain or stiffness in your feet from arthritis. 

Toe fusion surgery starting from £2,424*

Toe fusion surgery can be performed to treat severe pain from arthritis in your small toes or hallux rigidus (arthritis in your big toe). It involves joining together the bones of your affected joint using screws or a metal plate, preventing them from rubbing against each other and causing pain when you move your feet or toes.

*The prices that are shown above reflect self-pay prices where patients at The Highfield Hospital have paid for their treatment themselves. This price will vary depending on your diagnosis and recommended treatment plan. But the cost of your treatment will always be confirmed in writing after your consultation and any necessary diagnostic tests. Further terms and conditions apply.
