Vanderbilt Bone & Joint / Foot and Ankle Care

Foot and Ankle Care

The feet serve as the foundation for the entire body. The complex structure of the feet allows them to support our weight, and they play an important role in balance and mobility.

We don’t think about this until pain or other problems become stumbling blocks, sometimes literally. Nearly everyone will experience some type of foot or ankle problem during their lifetime.

Vanderbilt Bone & Joint specialists are experts in treating all types of foot and ankle disorders, both sports and non-sports related. Several of these conditions include arthritis (including arthritis following trauma), fractures, bunions, corns, hammertoes, heel pain (including plantar fasciitis), flat feet (“fallen arches”) and unstable joints in the foot and ankle. We provide the most advanced foot and ankle care possible.
