Foot & ankle surgery

Get fast access to expert treatment for foot and ankle problem

Foot and ankle pain can significantly reduce your mobility, making it a challenge to get on with everyday tasks or maintain an active lifestyle.

If this sounds like you, it’s time to take action. Why wait for treatment when you could be seen by a specialist in as little as 48 hours?

At BMI Albyn Hospital, we have an expert team of specialists ready to quickly diagnose and treat your foot and ankle pain. From Orthopaedic Consultant Surgeons, to Physiotherapists, to Pain Management Consultants, our multidisciplinary team is here to support you at every step.

Your pain could be caused by a variety of joint pain conditions and traumatic injuries, including:

At BMI Albyn Hospital in Aberdeen, we’ll quickly locate the cause of your problems and get you started on the road to recovery.

We offer a range of foot and ankle treatment options at BMI Albyn Hospital, including:

Forefoot surgery for one foot

This is a reconstructive procedure to treat forefoot problems, which are most often induced by chronic joint conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Common forefoot issues include bunions, claw toe, hammer toe and hallux rigidus (a stiff large toe joint). They can cause pain, reduced mobility and toe deformities.

We offer forefoot surgery for both feet starting from £7,208*.

Ankle arthroscopy

Also referred to as keyhole surgery, an arthroscopy is carried out to diagnose and treat ankle pain. During this procedure, your Consultant will make a small incision in your skin to insert a camera, known as an arthroscope, into your ankle. This allows them to diagnose the cause of your pain, and they may even be able to perform treatment during the same procedure.

Total ankle replacement surgery

A total ankle replacement is a procedure to replace the damaged parts of your ankle joint with artificial (prosthetic) components. This is a highly successful operation that can greatly reduce (or even eliminate) ankle pain as well as significantly improving your mobility.

Toe surgery (bone fusion)  

A bone fusion procedure involves straightening your bent toe and fixing it in position with a metal wire or medical screw. This helps reduce pain and discomfort caused by a bent toe, and should improve mobility and function in your foot.

Bunion repair with soft tissue release

A bunion is a bony lump on the side of your foot. They can cause pain and discomfort, particularly when walking. Bunion repair surgery is a fast and effective means of removing bunions and restoring usual function to your foot.
