The specialty-trained ankle doctors at Desert Orthopaedic Center located in Las Vegas and Henderson are regional experts in assessing, diagnosing, and treating ankle injuries and conditions.

Ankle injuries or conditions are commonly associated with trauma or sports-related injuries. However, the ankle joint is very vulnerable, and an injury can easily happen with little warning from falling, overuse, or everyday activities, such as walking. When an ankle injury occurs, it not only causes pain, but often the foot and ankle’s ability to function is disrupted, depending on how the bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons have been damaged. Ankle injuries both minor and severe can also result in chronic conditions over time, such as osteoarthritis.

Common Conditions Seen by an Ankle Doctor

  • Achilles tendon injury
  • All forms of arthritis
  • Bone spurs
  • Fractured ankle
  • Rolled or twisted ankle 
  • Sprain to the ligament
  • Strain
  • Stress fracture
  • Tendonitis

If you are suffering from any of the following common symptoms, it is recommended you seek nonsurgical or surgical treatment from an ankle specialist near you:

  • Inability to walk or bear weight on the injured ankle
  • Limited range of motion
  • Pain that lingers or worsens instead of improving
  • Stiffness or weakness
  • Swelling, warmth, or pain to the touch

At Desert Orthopaedic Center, our ankle specialists understand that ankle pain can impact the quality of life for a patient. While conservative treatment options are recommended first, your injury or condition may require a more advanced type of treatment such as surgery.
