Foot & Ankle
The ankle joint is a biomechanically complex functional unit that is susceptible to even minor, usually post-traumatic changes. However, the cartilage of the ankle joint has a very good regenerative capacity if the original condition is restored at an early stage.
Post-traumatic osteoarthritis as a late complication of ankle fractures can lead to an enormous impairment of the patient’s quality of life.
To prevent joint wear, we correct axial deviations, perform stabilization surgery, replace cartilage and bone defects or relieve the joint by stretching. If the ankle joint is already affected by osteoarthritis, we offer joint replacement using endoprostheses or stiffening of the ankle joint.
The foot is a statically very complex structure of bones and joints, reinforced by dozens of ligaments and tendons.
Patients suffer from a wide range of problems, from pain in the big toe and forefoot, to flat feet or developmental deformities, to Achilles tendon disorders and post-traumatic conditions (usually in the calcaneus).
The spectrum of operations on the foot is very wide. The goal of most procedures is to restore the foot to its original condition. This can be done through corrective surgery on bones and joints, tendon transfers, or reconstruction of ligaments.
