Department of foot surgery

The department of foot surgery at St. Elisabethen Hospital Frankfurt am Main offers a full range of conservative and surgical treatments for all clinical manifestations leading to limited movement in the foot. An exceptional number of bones and tendons interact in the foot and ankle joint, which requires enormous special knowledge to treat them in case of illness. Therefore, much time is devoted to the diagnosis and an individual assessment of which conservative or operative measure makes more sense in the department. The main focus is on the restoration of orthopaedic and traumatic displacements. All modern surgical procedures and techniques are available and adapted to each patient's individual needs. The department's patients benefit significantly from the possibilities of minimally invasive treatment and the continuous improvement of modern implants with angular stability. As a result, specialists can now minimize the movement restrictions associated with surgery.

The department offers a wide range of treatment options for foot and ankle diseases of all types and degrees of severity. Finding the proper treatment for each patient is a top priority for the department. Where it makes sense, the conservative spectrum is always exhausted first, such as through medication or physical therapy. In operational terms, the department has all the modern possibilities, from arthroscopic interventions to joint arthroplasty. Doctors also work with cartilage damage methods such as bone grafting or cartilage cell culture.
