Foot and Ankle Services and Treatments

Our foot and ankle surgeons use state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and treat all types of foot, ankle, and heel conditions.

Imaging and testing

Digitized x-ray systems let us see everything in real time, so you won’t be waiting for results.

Imaging technologies and other diagnostic tools include:

  • Arthrograms — an x-ray to help diagnose the cause of unexplained joint pain.
  • Bone scans.
  • Computed tomography (CT) scans.
  • Hand-held Doppler units — ultrasound tools that can detect a blockage in the blood vessels.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans.
