The doctors at University Foot and Ankle Institute are nationally recognized experts with decades of experience in the treatment of toe conditions ranging from minor toenail concerns to bunions to ankle replacement surgery.
We revolutionized bunion and arthritis care and helped develop numerous technologies including one that allows most patients to be immediately weight bearing after surgery.
We are only one of a handful of practices in the entire nation who can perform all three types of ankle replacement and are licensed to offer more bunion treatments options than anyone else.
Sesamoids are two bones on the ball of the foot behind the big toe joint. Sesamoiditis is when they become injured, then pain, inflammation and bone damage occurs.
Avascular necrosis or Frieberg’s infarction is a painful condition that occurs when there's an interruption of the blood supply to a toe. The tissue then dies and the bone collapses.
