Foot and Ankle Specialist at MOI
The foot and ankle specialist at Midwest Orthopaedic Institute focuses on treating a full range of foot and ankle conditions for patients from DeKalb, IL, and nearby communities. We educate our patients about the best possible treatments and exhaust all conservative options prior to considering surgery. Utilizing time-tested treatments and the latest technological advances, we return our patients to their activities as quickly as possible. And, if a patient requires surgery, our specialized training and state-of-the-art facilities allow us to assist the patient throughout the entire course of treatment, including guiding and comforting the patient and family from the time an acute injury occurs through the surgical correction, and eventually to complete recovery.
At MOI, we have some of the most advanced diagnostic equipment available in the DeKalb, Illinois, area. We fully explore the reasons that a patient has sought orthopaedic care, consider the risks and benefits of each potential treatment option, map out long-term treatment goals, and select the optimal approach. In addition to arthritis, ligament damage, and tendon tears, some of the other conditions our foot and ankle specialist treats include:
- Ankle sprains and instability
- Plantar fasciitis
- Bone spurs
- Joint pain
- Work-related injuries
- Sports-related injuries
Even for relatively minor foot and ankle conditions, such as plantar warts, corns, calluses, athlete’s foot, and ingrown toenails, it is always advisable to see a specialist who can recommend appropriate treatment and ensure the best possible care. At MOI, we understand that foot problems can affect the quality of everyday life, and we are often able to provide a patient with fast relief.
