This book “Foot and Ankle Surgery” is one of the younger subspecialties in orthopedic surgery. This book has been written as a resource to learn about the current surgical and nonsurgical options for foot and ankle pathologies. Preferred surgical techniques are also described. Foot and ankle is an area of orthopedics that is evolving very quickly, and spans trauma, sports medicine, total joint replacement, reconstructive surgery, and pediatric orthopedic surgery. It is these opportunities that make it easy to make a difference in the lives of foot and ankle patients. In recent years, there has been a tremendous interest in this subspecialty, with great advances ranging from total ankle replacements to minimally invasive surgery. These advances have improved patient care, allowing individuals to regain function and return to activities faster than ever before. This book will inspire some to seek a career in orthopedic foot and ankle surgery, while others, discover a heightened interest in this area of orthopedics. At minimum, this book should serve as a comprehensive reference book to come back to whenever a foot and ankle surgery is being planned or a foot and ankle patient is in the office.
