An Individualized Approach to Foot & Ankle Treatments
Because of our specialized orthopaedic team, the University of Chicago Medicine's Musculoskeletal Center is at the forefront of personalized foot and ankle care. We manage everything from straightforward cases to highly complex problems. And we take an active role in educating patients about their condition, explaining all available treatment options for reducing pain and improving function. We encourage our patients to participate in the decision-making process.
UChicago Medicine's foot and ankle team also treats general aches and pains acquired through daily and recreational activities. And our group provides education on preventive medicine, including proper shoe wear and foot care for diabetic patients.
We treat a broad range of concerns including:
Inflammatory conditions (rheumatoid arthritis)
Ligament injuries (sprains and dislocations)
Tendon injuries (Achilles, posterior tibial tendon and peroneal tendons)
