We understand that these disorders can also interfere with everyday activities, and can become debilitating if left untreated. The skilled and caring team at Akron General’s Orthopedic Center can provide relief, offering a wide range of treatment options based on your needs.
Following your one-on-one consultation and diagnosis, your doctor will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan. He or she will sit down side-by-side with you to discuss the recommendations and answer any questions you and your family may have. Our specialists are experienced in treating a variety of foot and ankle disorders, including:
