Foot & Ankle

Until they start to hurt, we usually don’t think much about our feet and ankles. However, once we do have a problem, they have our full attention. Learn more about common foot and ankle conditions.

Foot and Ankle EvaluationWOSM7

If you are having foot or ankle problems, you’ve come to the right place. At WOSM, Dr.  Edward Magur, our fellowship-trained foot and ankle specialist, is pleased to provide comprehensive management of all foot and ankle conditions. Appropriate evaluation typically includes:

  • Thorough history
  • Physical examination
  • X-rays (when indicated)
  • Appropriate advanced imaging studies, (e.g. MRI or CT scan)
  • Discussion of findings and treatment options

Foot and Ankle Treatment

Dr. Magur focuses on conservative management for foot and ankle problems, when feasible. Common conservative treatment measures include shoewear modifications and orthotics, medication (both oral and topical), physical therapy and home exercises, and injections. Should you require surgery, we will explain everything you need to know. All surgical patients are given a packet of material on foot and ankle surgery along with appropriate explanations of what to expect, how to prepare, and how to schedule. If you think of questions later, don’t worry-we have you covered. At WOSM, we endeavor to return every single call and email by the close of the business day.
