Foot and Ankle Surgery

52 (25 percent) of the 206 bones in our body are located in the feet. These bones are connected to each other by 33 joints in each foot. In addition to these bones and joints, there are many important muscles, tendons, ligaments, vessels and nerve structures around the foot and ankle. Our feet bear 2-3 times our body weight while walking, and 7 times our body weight when we run. Foot and ankle surgery is a medical discipline that involves surgical interventions to treat various conditions and problems in the foot and ankle area. These surgical interventions often target foot deformities, fractures, tendon injuries, nerve compression, tumors and other orthopedic problems. These surgical procedures, performed by expert orthopedic surgeons, are planned to reduce patients' pain, ensure functional recovery and improve their overall quality of life.

Even if there is no disease, it wears out over time


These two important extensions, which provide human contact with the earth's surface, bear the entire burden of human beings throughout their lives. Therefore, even without a disease in the feet, various disorders may occur over time due to wear and tear and deformities.

There May Be Age-Related Problems


Painful calcifications (cartilage wear) may develop in the joints. Problems due to strain on muscles and tendons are common. The most common sports injury in the world is ligament injuries due to ankle sprain.
