Combined, the human foot and ankle contains more than 26 bones and 40 joints, and the average person takes 10,000 steps per day. The foot is a highly intricate structure that works in unison with the ankle to help support our body weight, allow us to stand, walk or run, and move and flex in a variety of ways. When the foot is injured, it often requires highly specialized treatment to restore maximum function and movement.
At OrthoNorcal Orthopedic Specialists, our specialty-trained orthopedic foot surgeon, Nicholas A. Abidi, M.D., is dedicated to a multidisciplinary approach to treating foot injuries. Common foot procedures our surgeon often performs include arthroplasty of the foot, bunion and hammertoe correction, flatfoot reconstruction, tendon transfer of the foot and ankle, hindfoot and midfoot fusions, tarsal tunnel decompression, lateral and medial ligament reconstruction and ankle joint replacement, among several others. From nonsurgical to surgical foot care, the OrthoNorcal Orthopedic Specialists foot surgeon provides an individualized treatment plan focused on your individual goals.
