Physicians at Carolinas HealthCare System treat foot and ankle problems ranging from bunions and calluses to diabetic foot problems, total ankle replacement, athletic injuries and all types of foot pain. Several care locations feature the latest scientific and technological resources to provide the information needed to accurately diagnose a foot or ankle condition, including:
- Fluoroscopy (X-ray technique that allows for continuous imaging of a joint to display motion)
- Computerized gait analysis (the use of sensors and video to determine if a patient has foot-related postural problems)
- MRI scanning
Once diagnosed, the sub-specialized foot and ankle physicians at Carolinas HealthCare System provide expert analysis to determine each patient's individualized care plan.
Foot and ankle physicians at Carolinas HealthCare have compiled a record of progressive care and successful treatment, one of the reasons that athletes from professional sports leagues and major collegiate athletic conferences regularly turn to Carolinas HealthCare System to diagnose and treat their injuries.
While serious injuries may require a trip to the Institute's state-of-the-art operating rooms, most disorders can be addressed on site through non-invasive measures such as physical therapy, corrective footwear and soft tissue shockwave treatment.
