Foot Injuries and Pain
The human foot is a marvel of nature. It is strong and powerful yet fragile and complex. The average foot is made up of 26 bones, 38 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles and tendons. All of these work together to allow us to run, jump, hop, skip and swim.
Obviously, we depend on our feet for many reasons. When they become injured, diseased, or have an abnormal condition, we can find ourselves inactive, in pain and frustrated.
Fortunately, orthopaedic foot care has significantly improved with recent advancements in technology, and Dr. Jan-Eric Esway is highly skilled in the latest methods of caring for feet. Since entering private practice, he has helped thousands of patients enjoy greater comfort, stability and flexibility.
Dr. Esway is skilled in many surgical techniques, especially those that are minimally invasive. When compared to traditional surgical procedures, minimally-invasive techniques can produce superior results, including less scarring, reduced swelling, less pain, quicker recoveries and reduced chance of infection.
