FOOT AND ANKLE CARE
The surgeons at Kayal Orthopaedic Center, PC have been uniquely trained to treat a wide variety of foot and ankle problems. The foot and ankle are extremely complex and sophisticated structures, yet at the same time, they are incomparably durable. The feet consist of over 50 bones and joints held together and supported by dozens of small ligaments and powered by numerous muscles and tendons. Add to this the fact that each foot has over 14,000 nerve endings in it–and one can begin to appreciate how intricate treating the foot and ankle can be.
Innovations in the diagnosis and treatment of the foot are emerging very quickly, and the foot and ankle surgeons at Kayal Orthopaedic Center, PC pride themselves in keeping up to date with the latest technologies by regularly attending meetings, seminars and courses and by reading newly published scientific papers on treatments of foot and ankle disorders.
