Foot & Ankle Conditions / Treatments

The human foot is a very complex structure with 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 ligaments and muscles working together to achieve a unique combination of stability and flexibility. Problems can arise in any of these specialized structures, especially with active adults.

The foot and ankle specialists at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush are also very involved in research, especially in the areas of adult reconstruction, rheumatoid arthritis, industrial injuries, sports medicine, diabetes and biomechanics. Advancements in surgical techniques, prosthesis design, and rehabilitation mean that conditions once considered debilitating can be effectively treated today.
