The Foot and Ankle Institute treats problems ranging from bunions and calluses to diabetic foot problems, total ankle replacement, athletic injuries and foot deformities.
The Institute features the latest scientific and technological resources to provide the information needed to diagnose a foot or ankle condition. These include:
- MRI scanning
- Computerized gait analysis
An expert team of physicians
Advanced technology and expert analysis allow the institute's physicians to excel. Having practiced and perfected their specialty for decades, they provide unsurpassed diagnostic expertise by addressing all aspects of foot and ankle disease. Those capabilities, along with a record of successful treatments, explain why professional and college athletes regularly turn to our physicians to diagnose and treat their injuries.
While serious injuries may require a trip to one of the institute's dedicated, state-of-the-art operating rooms, most disorders can be addressed on site through non-invasive measures such as:
- Physical therapy
- Corrective footwear
- Soft tissue shockwave treatment
Restoring the human foot requires the skill of an engineer and the hands of a sculptor. Our mission is to combine research, education and world-class patient care to provide cutting-edge foot and ankle services to physicians and their patients in the Southeast. With a team that includes several of the nation's leading specialists, access to a comprehensive array of the latest diagnostic and treatment technologies, and a commitment to research and educational leadership, the institute raises foot and ankle medicine to a virtual art form.
