We depend so much on our feet and ankles for support so even a minor injury or problem can make a big difference on our quality of life. Feet require very thorough and precise care to heal properly.

MedStar Georgetown University Hospital’s Foot and Ankle Center provides experienced care, comprehensive services, and multidisciplinary coordination.

The orthopaedic physicians at MedStar Georgetown have years of experience treating the full range of foot and ankle issues – from trauma to sports injuries to degenerative diseases. All of our orthopedic surgeons have specialized fellowship training in foot and ankle surgery; they are experts at correcting failed surgery performed at other institutions.

We also make patient convenience a top priority. You can find everything you need to recover in one place at our Foot and Ankle Center, including:

  • Full diagnostics and radiology
  • Durable medical goods, meaning any special equipment you need to recover 
  • Pedorthic and shoe consultant if you need orthotics, inserts or special shoes
