The average person takes approximately 10,000 steps a day, which adds up to more than 3 million steps per year. Most of us probably do not even think about our feet, until they start to hurt! We understand that foot and ankle pain can make your life difficult.

Not Every Patient Will Require Surgery
Many conditions and injuries can be treated without surgery. Conservative treatments may include medication, physical therapy, home exercise, shoewear modifications and orthotics, and/or injections. If physical therapy is recommended, you will have access to our on-site Physical Therapy Centers located at each of our office locations.
When surgery is required, you will benefit from the most up-to-date reconstructive and arthroscopic surgical techniques. Dr. Matt will continue to work with you until you are fully recovered.
