Expert help for foot and ankle conditions
Many normal movements and activities, like walking up and down stairs, driving a car or simply standing in the kitchen while making a hot drink, can all become much more challenging. Your feet and ankles are incredibly complex, both structurally and functionally.
A foot and ankle together contain 28 bones as well as an intricate arrangement of ligaments, tendons, nerves, muscles and joints. Anything that interrupts the smooth working of one or more of these parts – whether injury, disease of the result of ageing – can have a significant effect on your ability to move freely and easily.
If you live in or around Basingstoke, Hampshire and are struggling with an ankle or foot problem, expert help is available, fast.
At BMI The Hampshire Clinic, highly experienced foot and ankle surgeons provide assessment and treatment for a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions.
They would be delighted to help you too.
Toe & forefoot problems:
Midfoot & hindfoot problems:
In addition to the symptoms and conditions listed above, osteoarthritis can affect a foot or ankle, causing pain and stiffness in the joints. Most commonly this will develop in the big toe or ankle, but it can develop in any joint.
People with diabetes have an increased risk of developing a foot problem known as peripheral neuropathy. This occurs when your diabetes reduces the blood supply to your feet, leading to a loss of feeling in the foot.
If any type of problem in your foot or ankle is causing you concern or affecting daily life, it is sensible to see an expert for help. At BMI The Hampshire Clinic, it is easy to arrange a private appointment with an experienced foot and ankle surgeon for expert assessment and advice.
A number of foot and ankle treatments are available at the hospital, both non-surgical (conservative) and surgical. Conservative treatments include:
Where these are not able to provide suitable symptom relief, surgery may be required. There are a multitude of operations available, and these would be tailored to your specific requirements. Foot and ankle surgery available at BMI The Hampshire Clinic includes:
They will carry out a physical examination of your whole leg, from toes all the way up to your hip. Even though your symptoms may only be in your foot or ankle, problems in the knee or hip can sometimes be the cause so need to be ruled out.
This may be all that is needed to make a diagnosis and plan treatment. In other cases, you may be referred for further investigations, such as X-ray, CT, MRI or ultrasound. These are all on-site at BMI The Hampshire Clinic and easily arranged when required.
Once the results of any investigations are back and a diagnosis has been made, your consultant will meet with you again to discuss treatment options with you. If you have any questions or concerns, they will be very happy to talk through them with you.
Many people are referred to us by their GP, physiotherapist or private medical insurance provider. Others are recommended to us by a friend or family member. We treat people with private medical insurance and self-pay patients.
While a medical referral can be helpful, you can self-refer to avoid delay.
