Ankle Fracture Treatment in New Jersey
Stress fractures are small fractures that can occur from overuse or activities that place high stress on the structures of the foot and ankle.
Common symptoms of a stress fracture include:
- Pain during activity that diminishes with rest
- Swelling on the top of the foot or outside the ankle
- Tenderness, redness and bruising
Arthroscopy of the foot and ankle gives our team a way to evaluate and treat many foot and ankle problems in a minimally invasive manner.
In an arthroscopy, the surgeon inserts a small camera into a specific joint area, whether it be the ankle or even the great toe joint. By using the scope, the surgeon is able to minimize the use of long incisions, soft tissue damage, and to avoid unnecessary dissection. This means a shorter recovery time and reduced pain and discomfort following the procedure.
Arthroscopy can be used to treat many ailments, including arthritis, ankle ligament sprains and tears, ankle fractures, cartilage defects and even tendon damage.
Treatment options include rest, taping of the foot and ankle, orthotic devices and crutches. In rare cases, surgery may be required.
Our physicians are trained and experienced in all foot and ankle conditions, including advanced trauma and fracture treatment. If treatments that are more conservative do not yield the positive results we believe are possible, we may utilize any of the following procedures:
