The foot and ankle area is prone to injury, wear and tear, and degenerative conditions, as well as deformities and bunions. Due to the complex anatomy and structure of the foot and ankle, with its many bones, joints, muscles and tendons, as well as the significant demand which is placed upon it, many things can go wrong. These conditions can rapidly worsen and become more painful without early identification and treatment.

In many cases, pain and poor functionality is caused by low level trauma to the joints over many years. Repeated stress on a certain part of the foot or ankle can lead to conditions such as osteoarthritis and it is a good idea to book an appointment if you are experiencing regular discomfort in a particular area. An effective surgery for severe cases of osteoarthiris is joint replacement or fusion. Swelling in the area can also be caused by rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease.

Severe injury to the ankle or foot, such as ligament damage caused by ankle sprains, broken bones, and damaged tendons, can be treated with a variety of surgeries. These treatments focus on the removal or reconstruction of painful tendon tissue, in order to regain strength and stability in the area, which will allow confident pain free walking, running, and participation in sports.

Other discomfort in the feet can be caused by bunions, which are removed in a surgery known as an osteotomy, and toe deformities, which can be treated with surgeries that may reshape the toe, lengthen tendons, or affix toes in place.

The advances in surgery technology and techniques, such as advanced plates and modern anaesthetic blocks, have ensured that foot and ankle surgery is both very successful and minimally uncomfortable. It is extremely common for foot and ankle surgery to come hand in hand with a physiotherapy treatment program, designed to achieve a patient’s maximum strength, stability and flexibility, while preventing further discomfort in the area.

To book an appointment with one of our expert consultants, contact our friendly enquiries team who are also on hand to answer any questions you have about available treatments and guides prices. Whether you have been referred by a GP, podiatrist, physiotherapist, or you are a self-pay referral, our team will help you pick the right consultant for you. If you have been referred to a specific consultant, we will book you in with them at a convenient time for you, with no waiting list.

At your appointment, your consultant will greet you in our main reception and escort you to their consultation room. Here, they will lead a conversation with you about the symptoms you are experiencing in the area and if you are aware of any triggers for them. After this, they will carry out a physical examination and consider the appropriate diagnostics. As BMI The Chiltern Hospital has access to the very best diagnostic equipment, including CT, X-ray and ultrasound, as well as advanced, wide-bore MRI scanners, your consultant will arrange these tests for you within two weeks. During your diagnosis and the treatment that follows, your consultant may involve other specialists, such as a wider team of radiographers.

When your test results are available, your consultant will invite you in to discuss your diagnosis and your options for treatment. This is a great opportunity to consider your hopes and expectations for your lifestyle after your recovery. Surgeries vary in severity, as well as their risks and benefits, so our consultants are sensitive to the ambitions of each patient, from professional sports players, to those who just want to enjoy a walk in the park. With this in mind, your treatment may use surgical and/or non-surgical solutions, such as physiotherapy or steroid injections.

If your treatment plan does involve surgery, your consultant will thoroughly explain the procedure to you and answer any questions you have. They will also offer you a fixed quote, which will be sent out to you in writing.

When you check into BMI The Chiltern Hospital, our team will ensure you are as comfortable and settled as possible in your private room. All of our staff are committed to ensuring your stay with us is an enjoyable, private and peaceful experience. The fantastic facilities throughout the department, including state of the art operating theatres for your surgery, coupled with the expert attention of our team, will ensure your care with us is first class.

In the period following your surgery, your consultant will work with our lead physiotherapist to ensure you have the very best rehabilitation plan available as well as the support you need to execute it. As your consultant is always leading on your treatment, they will monitor your progress towards recovery, as necessary.

The consultants at BMI The Chiltern Hospital take an integrated approach to all conditions relating to the foot and ankle area, making use of all available therapies and technology to achieve excellent results. Whether this is the specialist diagnostic equipment we have available, our high quality rehabilitation boot technology, or our rehabilitation treadmill within the physiotherapy department, the techniques and resources at our experts’ disposal are the highest grade.

Pair this with our team’s significant experience and qualifications in this field, notably with professional sports injuries, and you can rest assured you are receiving the most ambitious and successful care available.
