Department of Orthopaedic Surgery

Foot and Ankle

The focus of the Foot and Ankle Division is to provide the highest quality education, research and care related to the diagnosis and treatment – both non-surgical and surgical – for conditions that affect the foot and ankle.   We specialize in traumatic injuries to the foot and ankle in addition to reconstruction of deformity, revision surgery, and the treatment of arthritis including ankle replacements. 


Our program is dedicated to the education of Northwestern University orthopaedic residents, medical students, and staff members through organized teaching and research.  The two faculty members within the Division are heavily involved in the education of orthopedic surgeons and orthopedic residents with multiple lectures given locally, nationally, and internationally.
