Foot & ankle

Don’t give in to foot pain

It’s great to sit back and put your feet up–unless that is all you can do.

You walk, jump, or run on your feet every day, so being limited by foot, ankle or lower leg pain can keep you away from the activities you love. This is where the foot and ankle specialists of Novant Health UVA Health System can make a difference for you.

Our experts can provide comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of foot, ankle and lower leg problems. In many cases, your physician can help you manage foot and ankle disorders without surgery by recommending physical therapy, medication or custom shoe inserts to reduce pain.

Sophisticated diagnostic imaging may also be part of your comprehensive evaluation, so if you need surgery, you’ll be in good hands with Novant Health UVA Health System's team of experts. Our highly skilled orthopedic surgeons treat a wide variety of foot problems, including:

  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Ankle sprain
  • Arthritis (osteoarthritis, post-traumatic, heel spur)
  • Bunion
  • Fractures
  • Osteochondritis dessecans
  • Heel pain (Sever's disease)
  • Morton's neuroma
  • Plantar fasciitis

Our patient support staff will work with you to keep you informed throughout your course of treatment. If you need them, our rehabilitation teams will provide physical therapy to help you return to your best possible quality of life.
