Many people believe that when they go to see an orthopedic surgeon, it will automatically mean a discussion of surgery. However, our team at the Rose Orthopedic & Spine Center offers a wide variety of non-surgical treatment options that may become a part of your treatment plan. If surgery is necessary, our team offers the latest in minimally invasive surgical techniques for treating orthopedic foot conditions. We work closely with our patients to ensure their treatment plans are not only a good fit for their medical needs, but also take into consideration their lifestyle and health goals.

Additionally, our surgical patients work closely with a dedicated patient navigator who helps you through the process from diagnosis to treatment and recovery. Our patient navigator provides patient guidebooks, educational videos and all logistics, right down to where to park the day of surgery.

Diagnosing foot and ankle conditions

Your orthopedist or orthopedic surgeon will take a complete medical history and perform a physical examination in order to understand more about the problem or pain you are experiencing. A gait analysis may be conducted along with any combination of the following imaging exams:

  • X-ray
  • Computed tomography scan (CT or CAT)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Surgical treatment options

Surgical treatment is considered when nonsurgical treatment does not work. The choice of surgery is dependent on the type of arthritis/damage, impact of the disease on the joints and location. Two common procedures we perform on the ankle, as a part of our joint care program, include:

  • Ankle fusion (arthrodesis): A procedure done when the ankle joint becomes worn out and painful, or degenerative.
  • Arthroplasty: A procedure that replaces the affected joint.

At the Rose Orthopedic & Spine Center, our expert surgeons are able to diagnose and provide each patient the right treatment for their condition. All joint-related and orthopedic surgeries are performed with great precision, using the latest in technology and medical implants.
