WELCOME TO THE STANMORE FOOT AND ANKLE SURGERY SITE
The Foot and ankle is a remarkable feat of engineering! It is a tremendously versatile organ allowing activities as contrasting as soft tiptoeing to powerful sprinting.
The Foot and ankle consists of twenty seven separate articulations combining to flex, extend and rotate in every axis.
Normal foot function relies on a complex interaction of muscles, tendons and ligaments acting across these multiple joints.
Pain, stiffness, swelling weakness and deformity can result when there is a loss of these normal relationships. We hope that the site will help you to understand how the foot and ankle functions, the problems that can beset the region, and how these problems may be treated.
You will find a wealth of information about well established procedures in addition to newer techniques and technologies.
If you develop a problem with your feet and ankles, whether it be pain, swelling, stiffness, deformity or weakness, at the Stanmore Foot & Ankle unit, we strive to provide you with the highest standard of care available.
