The foot and ankle are the first parts of the body to accept weight when standing, walking and running. These two areas are very susceptible to adverse stresses in sports, activities, and varied walking surfaces which can lead to injury and foot and ankle pain. Similar to the hand and wrist, the foot and ankle are comprised of a number of bones statically held together by ligaments and dynamically supported by muscles and tendons.
At OSS, we recognize the importance of the orthopedic subspecialist. Dr. Mark Mikhael, an orthopedic surgeon and foot and ankle specialist, uses the most up-to-date clinical skills, diagnostic tools, and treatment techniques to care for the foot and ankle and their associated structures.
