Advanced Total Care for Your Foot and Ankle
If your feet hurt, you’ve come to the right place. Taking good care of your feet is critical to a healthy, active, pain-free lifestyle – no matter how old you are or what you do.
Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System’s orthopaedic surgeons – including a fellowship-trained foot and ankle specialist – have the expertise to care for all your foot and ankle issues. We’ll give you the right diagnosis and treatment for everything from ingrown toenails, to pain and weakness, to sudden traumatic injuries.
We care for a wide range of conditions, including:
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Ankle sprains
- Broken bones (fractures)
- Chronic deformities (such as claw toes and hammertoes)
- High arches
- Flat feet
- Overuse injuries
- Shin splints
- Sports injuries
Relief for Your Feet – With Conservative to Advanced Surgical Treatments
To relieve pain and correct your foot and ankle issues, your doctor may recommend nonsurgical treatments, including:
- Physical therapy
- Shoe inserts
Or, depending on your condition, you may be a candidate for a surgical procedure, such as:
- Bunion correction surgery
- Ankle fusion
- Total ankle replacement
- Other advanced procedures
Our orthopaedic surgeons have the expertise to take good care of you. We’ll answer all your questions thoroughly and give you a comprehensive plan for rehabilitation and healing.
No Need to “Just Live with It ”
Don’t delay care when it comes to your feet and ankles. Each part of your foot is interrelated. Putting off care for a small issue can lead to bigger problems with your feet and elsewhere in your body.
For example, one misconception is that you should wait as long as possible to correct a bunion – a common, bony bump that often forms along the side of a person’s big toe. The fact is – untreated bunions can lead to arthritis and other chronic foot deformities.
Don’t delay care for arthritis, either. Our orthopaedic experts will recommend therapies to ease arthritis pain in your foot and help you stay active longer.

A foot and ankle orthopaedic surgeon has specialized training to diagnose and treat all foot and ankle conditions. We begin with nonsurgical, conservative treatments. But if you need a procedure, our orthopaedic surgeons will use the most advanced techniques to relieve pain, restore function and get you back on your feet again.
