Foot and ankle doctors are medical experts who have developed deep knowledge of the ankle and foot as well as skills that allow them to diagnose and treat a full range of ankle injuries and issues. At Aspen Orthopedic Specialists, our foot and ankle doctors are surgical podiatrists with advanced training exclusively in the foot and ankle. Our foot and ankle surgeons always exhaust conservative, nonsurgical treatment options before exploring ankle surgery. Although if surgery proves to be necessary, our podiatrists are trained and skilled in performing the most advanced surgical techniques to get you back to the active lifestyle you love.
Know When It’s Time to Get Ankle Treatment
You should request an appointment with an ankle doctor or surgeon if you notice any of these symptoms:
- Your ankle is swollen and painful to the touch
- Your ankle joint is stiff, making walking extremely painful or impossible
- Your entire lower leg hurts
- Your ankle joint gives way when you bear weight
- You would describe your ankle as unstable
You may also need to see an ankle expert if you believe you have one of the following ankle injuries or conditions:
- Ankle sprain
- Sports injury
- Syndesmosis injury
- Tarsal tunnel syndrome
- Tendinitis (or tendonitis), which can develop in the Achilles tendon and other tendons of the foot and ankle
