Approximately 10% of all fractures occur in the 26 bones of the foot. These bones comprise of 2 bones in the hindfoot (calcaneus, talus), 5 bones in the midfoot (navicular, cuboid, 3 cuneiforms), and 19 bones in the forefoot (5 metatarsals, 14 phalanges). In addition, the foot contains sesamoid bones. Here at Podiatric Associates, we treat fractures of the foot and ankle. With analyzing x-rays taken on site, decision will be made for either conservative care in a boot or cast or to intervene surgically when justified.
With any trauma, please know that at Podiatric Associates, we offer same day appointments and on-site x-ray in order to diagnosis and appropriately treat a fracture of the foot and ankle as we are fully trained in conservative and elective surgeries of the foot and ankle.
