Foot & Ankle Problems

When you consider that the foot & ankle is made up of 28 bones, 33 joints and more than a hundred muscles, tendons and ligaments which help support your weight and control your movement, it makes sense this area of the body to be particularly prone to problems and injury. This could include broken and fractured bones, sprained ligaments, strained muscles, tendon issues, bone malformations and conditions like osteoarthritis.

Specialist teams

Whatever the condition, our highly experienced orthopaedic specialists, foot & ankle surgeons, physiotherapists and podiatrists can offer you comprehensive, professional treatment for all kinds of foot & ankle problems. They will be on-hand to help you through every stage, with reassurance, peace of mind and support throughout diagnosis, treatment and the appropriate follow-up care, whether you require a simple bunion correction procedure or more complex reconstructive surgery.

Expert diagnosis

In order to support an early and accurate diagnosis of your foot & ankle problem, our services include the very latest point-of-care diagnostic imaging equipment, which can include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound scanning facilities or a conventional X-ray.

Once a diagnosis has established the next steps, our orthopaedic specialists can suggest any follow-up treatment that you may need. If the problem cannot be treated with non-invasive surgery, then a minimally-invasive procedure may need to be considered. The latter could include ligament repairs, complex ankle surgeries, Achilles tendon repair and reconstruction surgery.

Effective rehabilitation

After your foot & ankle procedure, our team of musculoskeletal physiotherapists will be able to help you with appropriate exercises and mobilisations and other techniques to get your back to full fitness in the quickest time possible.

With Claremont’s 60 year reputation for excellence and the support of Blatchford Private Clinic (a global Sheffield-based provider of prosthetic and orthotic products for nearly 125 years), you can be assured of the highest standards of expertise, care and knowledge to support your rehabilitation.

Even if you have not seen your condition listed here, at Claremont we can treat all kinds of foot & ankle problems and injuries – please give us a call if there is anything else that you wish to discuss.

We look forward to hearing from you.
