Foot & Ankle Surgery

Diagnosis & Treatment for Joint Pains

The average person takes almost 10,000 steps a day. All that movement puts pressure on your feet and ankles. Together, the bones in your feet and ankle comprise about one-fourth of the bones in your entire body. The Foot and Ankle Service at The GW Medical Faculty Associates offers expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of problems of the foot and ankle, with an emphasis on adult reconstruction and revision surgery, traumatic and post-traumatic problems; congenital and developmental disease and deformities.

Our surgeon, Dr. Marc Chodos, treats pain associated with joint injuries and conditions, including:

  • Arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery
  • Foot and ankle sports medicine by a foot and ankle specialist
  • Bunions, metatarsal, hammertoes, and other forefoot abnormalities, deformities, or painful conditions
  • Midfoot and hindfoot deformities (congenital, developmental, or arthritic), including painful flat foot
  • Tendon and ligament problems (traumatic or degenerative)
  • Diabetic foot evaluation and care (including diabetic Charcot foot reconstruction and limb salvage)
  • Ankle fractures, arthritis, instability, deformities
  • Reconstruction of traumatic, developmental, or congenital deformities
