There are 26 bones in the feet, along with hundreds of muscles, ligaments and tendons that work in tandem to allow movement and motion. Various external forces, medical conditions, genetic predispositions, trauma, or ill-fitting footwear can impede functionality and cause damage or deformities to occur in the feet and ankles. Reconstructive surgery is sometimes necessary to fix this damage, correct deformities, remove pain and restore health, appearance and functionality to your feet and ankles.
