Treatment for Common Foot and Ankle Injuries and Conditions
When you experience foot, ankle or heel pain, the orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeons and podiatrists at Howard County General Hospital can help. We perform various foot surgeries to treat conditions that range from hammer toes, flat foot deformity, broken or sprained ankle, Achilles rupture or tear, to ankle arthritis and total ankle joint replacement.
When rest, exercise and medications are not effective, our surgeons can help you decide whether surgery is right for you and which type of procedure will have the best outcome. Our specialists also treat non-healing wounds and diabetic ulcers on the feet in our Center for Wound Healing.
