Non-Surgical Treatment

The non-surgical Foot and Ankle Service is dedicated to evaluating the majority of foot and ankle problems that often can be treated successfully without surgery.

Foot Orthotics

Our service is nationally renowned for its expertise in the design and fabrication of prescription shoe inserts called orthotics, which are used to treat many orthopedic foot and ankle problems. In addition, foot orthotics are prescribed to treat biomechanically related problems involving the knee, hip, and lower back. These conditions often respond well to the stability and improved mechanics that orthotics provide.

Sport-specific orthotics are designed to both improve athletic performance and reduce sports-related injuries. They may be prescribed for running, tennis, squash, golf, basketball, alpine and cross-country skiing, cycling, spinning, soccer, lacrosse, hockey, figure skating, in-line skating, and hiking.
