Foot and Ankle Services

Foot and ankle physician with patient

The foot is a complex structure made up of 26 bones, 33 joints and a network of muscles, tendons and ligaments. Because of this complexity and the daily physical demands our feet withstand, it is not uncommon to have foot or ankle problems at some point. When these problems cause pain and/or keep you from your regular activities, it is time to see an orthopaedic foot and ankle specialist.

We provide comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for people with athletic injuries, fractures (broken bones), arthritis, and deformities of the foot and ankle. Call us at 503-494-7600 for an appointment that fits your schedule.
