Our individualized approach to care means you’re getting the right treatment for your situation. Depending on your age, your injury and your lifestyle, our options include:
Custom orthotics – No more molds or casts. The Baylor Plano Comprehensive Foot and Ankle Program’s advanced technology uses a digital pressure mat to analyze and create orthotics which are made specifically to each patient’s foot/ankle, helping ensure the best orthotic for each individual patient.
Other Conservative treatments
The foot and ankle specialists on the Baylor Plano medical staff are trained in the full spectrum of foot and ankle surgery, including:
Regional Anesthesia The Baylor Plano Comprehensive Foot and Ankle Program often uses regional anesthesia for surgical procedures. By using a regional anesthesia, which for foot and ankle surgery is generally administered behind knee, pain can often be minimized or eliminated for two to three days after surgery as well. This type of anesthesia can better control post-surgery discomfort and reduce side effects associated with traditional pain medications such as nausea, constipation and sleepiness.
If your foot and ankle symptoms stem from diabetes or neurological disorders, we will consult with endocrinologists, neurologists or infectious disease specialists on the medical staff at Baylor Plano to provide a comprehensive approach to treatment.
In other cases, we will consult with our total joint replacement team, the general orthopedic surgeons, or the sports medicine specialists on our medical staff. When you choose the Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Services at Baylor Plano, all of your orthopedic and medical needs are addressed under one roof.
