Upstate Orthopedics

Foot & Ankle

The Foot Surgeon Syracuse Trusts

Your feet play an important role in your daily living by providing overall balance and mobility. While it may look small, your foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, and various arches, tendons, muscles, and ligaments, making your foot one of the most complex structures in your body. Your feet are delicate structures that support the weight of your entire body.

Pain in your feet, ankles, or legs can make it impossible to function. Simple tasks like going to the grocery store, heading to the mailbox, or even walking around your own home can become unbearable, impede mobility, and significantly impact your quality of life. 

Foot and ankle pain can be caused by a variety of factors, such as injury, congenital defects, trauma, arthritis, and everyday wear and tear. Treatment of foot or ankle issues requires a specialized foot surgeon, like Dr. Scott VanValkenburg at Upstate Orthopedics in East Syracuse, New York.
