Our Approach to Treating

Foot & Ankle Arthritis in Adults

Arthritis is a chronic condition that causes inflammation and degeneration in the joints, leading to symptoms such as pain, stiffness, and swelling. Arthritis in the foot and ankle may interfere with your ability to walk, work, and participate in everyday activities. Doctors at NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital and the Center for Ankle Arthritis work closely with specialists in rheumatology, radiology, and rehabilitation to provide care tailored to your symptoms and lifestyle. 

Our doctors and surgeons offer custom-fit orthotics that can ease discomfort while walking, as well as minimally invasive injections and surgical procedures that can relieve pain and restore movement. Also, our physical therapists have special training in orthopedics and can help you rebuild muscle, improve flexibility, and stay active.

Treatment for Foot and Ankle Arthritis in Adults

In the early stages of foot and ankle arthritis, doctors recommend a variety of treatments for managing symptoms, including medication, braces and orthotics, physical therapy, and therapeutic injections. If symptoms persist, our doctors may recommend surgery.
