As an AO Trauma fellow I learned that motion is life and life is motion, thus I believe no one should have to walk with pain.
I believe that foot and ankle care is the cornerstone of a healthy active life style. When your ankle or foot hurts exercising is often difficult or neglected. This can lead to weight gain, unpleasant mood and unwanted lifestyle changes.
Though every effort is made to avoid surgery, when surgery is indicated, Dr. Econopouly prefers arthroscopic procedures whenever possible over open surgical procedures because Dr. Econopouly believes that smaller incisions cause less trauma and rehab can begin faster. This is why patients with heel pain or ankle sprains resistant to conservative care are often scheduled for arthroscopic repair rather than open surgical procedures. Everyone in our office, from our receptionist to your doctor, has one goal in mind–to help you feel better fast.
