Foot/Ankle Surgery

The doctors at Orthopaedic Physicians of Colorado treat problems with the feet and ankles including fractures, sprains, tendonitis, bone spurs, chronic pain, bunions, and several kinds of toe problems.

  • Fracture — an ankle or foot bone is broken.
  • Sprain — a ligament (the connecting tissue between bones) is stretched or torn.
  • Tendonitis — the tendon (the connecting tissue between bone and muscle) develops painful swelling.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis — a disease that results from an immune system disorder that inflames joints throughout the body.
  • Osteoarthritis — known as the “wear and tear arthritis,” this painful joint inflammation is the result of abnormal wear of the cartilage (the tissue that covers the ends of bones).
  • Metatarsal pain (metatarsalgia) — chronic pain in the ball of the foot, usually a result of abnormal weight-bearing pressure.
  • Plantar fasciaitis — chronic inflammation of a bank of tissue (plantar fascia) that extends from the heel to the ball of the foot resulting in pain throughout the heel and/or arch usually associated with heel spurs.
  • Neuroma — abnormal nerve growth that develops when the nerve between two metatarsal heads are pinched or bruised causing numbness, tingling or pain in toes.
  • Bunions — swelling and painful “bump” around the joint at the base of the big toe.
  • Bunionette — swelling and painful “bump: around the joint of the base of the little toe.
  • Bone spurs — small bony protrusions that irritate surrounding tissue anywhere in the body.
  • Mallet, hammer or claw toes — downward bending of a toe joint usually cause by muscle imbalance or arthritis.
  • Gout — a disease that usually attacks the big toe joint causing pain and deformity as a result of too much uric acid in the body.
