Foot and Ankle Problems
Feet are the limbs that carry all burden of the body, touching the ground, although being very important always retreat into background. Unfortunately, retreat into background of the feet is true for “medical science” as well. “Hallux Valgus” was the only disorder that came to mind when speaking of Foot Surgery.
One of the two most important reasons behind the retreat into background of the feet in the science community is people do not care much about their feet. The other is that the anatomy and biomechanics of the foot and ankle are very complex, and the surgery is difficult.
Nowadays, speaking of “Foot Surgery” it is not only the deformity of the toe; Flat footedness in children and adults, diabetic foot, rheumatologic foot, tendon problems, all kinds of deformation of the foot, pain of the heel and other parts of the foot, gait disorders, ankle cartilage lesions, sports injuries, neurological problems, congenital deformities, finger and nail disorders, heel fractures and related disorders comes to mind.
Now, there orthopedic surgeons in Turkey who focus on this topic only, or mainly deal with “foot and ankle surgery”. All these discomforts can now be treated in Turkey with the quality standards of the US and European. It should be known that there are now foot and ankle surgeons in Turkey.
