Foot, Ankle & Lower Leg

The human foot is a highly complex structure consisting of dozens of bones and joints and more than a hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The ankle is the joint that connects the foot to the tibia and fibula bones of the lower leg. Between the two, the foot and ankle bear your entire body weight, allow you to stand, walk or run, and can move and flex in a large variety of ways.

When the foot, ankle or lower leg is injured, it often requires highly specialized treatment. Over the years, Florida Orthopaedic Institute physicians have helped thousands of patients get back on their feet with Tampa Bay’s most advanced orthopedic services. Our Foot & Ankle program includes diagnostic imaging, physical therapy, on-site MRI, and surgical treatments.
