Foot & Ankle Surgery

At Montvale Health & Wellness, our experts provide comprehensive non-surgical and surgical foot and ankle treatments

Specialty care focuses on both conservative, traditional treatments as well as the latest innovations in care of the foot and ankle, including advances in new orthopaedic techniques.

foot-ankle-2Edward Harris, DPM- Podiatric Surgery & Orthopedics, is trained to treat all disorders of the foot and ankle, both surgical and non-surgical. Our team understands the complex connections between disorders and injuries of the foot and ankle and how they relate to other parts of the body, such as the knee, hip, and spine.

Patients may seek out a foot and ankle surgeon for proper diagnosis and treatment of heel pain (such as a consequence from plantar heel fasciitis), nerve disorders (such as tarsal tunnel syndrome), and injuries. This is particularly important for athletes and other active people who engage in sports, a population that commonly experiences foot and ankle maladies.

A vast majority of foot and ankle conditions do not require surgical intervention. Some disorders, particularly in athletes, may be solved by adaption of footwear and/or the use of orthotics. Anti-inflammatory medication may help those with arthritis. Physical therapy may also be prescribed to relieve symptoms and provide strengthening exercises to support the surrounding muscles of any vulnerability in the foot or ankle.

Although most conservative approaches work for many disorders of the foot and ankle, when surgery is indicated, our team is here to guide you through the process. From hammer toes to bone spurs, every treatment is state-of-the-art and performed in a specialized environment.
