Foot and ankle surgery is a very complex type of orthopedic surgery because the foot and ankle areas are a sophisticated arrangement of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and blood vessels. The Torrance Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group foot and ankle care unit is led by board certified doctors with years of prestigious training and experience. They have adeptly mastered the details of foot and ankle surgery and continue to seek the most leading-edge solutions in the field. Our patients receive expert diagnoses, surgical and non-surgical treatments, and therapy after surgery. This results in the best possible recovery and regaining of normal function.
Common foot and ankle problems include painful scar tissue, osteoarthritis, bone spurs, damaged or arthritic toe and ankle joints, bunions, cysts, hammertoe, ruptured or torn Achilles tendon, calf muscle tightness (contracture), plantar fasciitis, fractures, tears, and lacerations. The foot care unit performs many specialized surgeries to alleviate these conditions, including ankle arthroscopy, bone spur removal, bone fusion surgery, bunion removal surgery, hammertoe correction, Achilles tendon repair, fracture alignment and repair, calf muscle release, tendon release, needle injections, minimally invasive ultrasound and radio ablation techniques, cyst and tumor removal, wound repair, and more.
