Ankle & Foot Fractures Treatment

Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists is at the forefront of treating foot and ankle fractures in Dallas, Texas. We understand the severity of these injuries and the immediate care required for optimal recovery.

Recognizing Ankle and Foot Fractures

Ankle and foot fractures can range from hairline fractures to complete breaks, each requiring a unique treatment approach. Symptoms often include sudden pain, swelling, bruising, and difficulty walking or bearing weight. Our experienced podiatrists use the latest diagnostic tools to provide an accurate and prompt diagnosis.

Our Comprehensive Treatment Approach

Our treatment protocol for ankle and foot fractures includes:

  • Evaluation and Diagnosis: We use state-of-the-art imaging studies to diagnose the nature and extent of the fracture accurately.
  • Immediate Care: Initial care often involves immobilization, pain management, and measures to reduce swelling.
  • Advanced Treatment Options: Depending on the fracture’s severity, we may use closed reduction, casting, or surgery. Each treatment aims to realign and stabilize the bone for proper healing.
  • Rehabilitation: Post-treatment, a customized rehabilitation plan is designed to restore strength, mobility, and balance.

Home Care Tips for Ankle and Foot Fractures

While immediate medical attention is necessary for fractures, there are measures you can take at home to manage symptoms and support recovery:

  1. Rest: It’s essential to rest the injured foot or ankle to prevent further damage. Avoid putting weight on the affected area.
  2. Ice: Apply an ice pack for 15-20 minutes every 2-3 hours to reduce swelling.
  3. Compression: Use a bandage to provide compression and limit swelling. Ensure it’s not too tight, as it can restrict blood flow.
  4. Elevation: Elevate the injured foot or ankle above heart level to reduce swelling.
  5. Pain Management: Over-the-counter pain relievers can be used for pain management, but always consult with your healthcare provider first.

When it’s time for rehabilitation, we provide exercises that you can safely do at home to restore mobility and strength gradually.

At Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists, we prioritize your recovery and long-term foot and ankle health. Our team, led by Dr. Patrick Burge, is dedicated to offering the highest level of podiatric care, and our patient-centric approach ensures that you feel understood and supported throughout your recovery process. Trust us to help you get back on your feet in the shortest possible time.

I love Dr. McClurkin and Dr. Burge! Everyone is so helpful and they really know what they're doing. I will definitely see them again!
I have plantar fasciitis in both feet and suffered with pain on and off for many years. After trying another round of steroids with little improvement (this time the left foot was the culprit of my pain), Dr. Burge suggested I try their Lunula Laser. I must say I was skeptical at something for which I didn't see or feel anything during treatment. After completing the 6th round I realized I was not feeling the stabbing pain in my heel, that I had used my water socks and been at the pool with no pain afterwards, and I had worn my dressy sandals all weekend long and not complained of pain in my left foot at all! Now, that was a huge success for me! My right foot is acting up a bit now. I know what to do this time. No more steroids! It will be Lunula Laser for me!
Thank you for your excellent care. 🙏🏾💜
Dr Burge does a fantastic job especially with wound care and the office staff are super nice!
Dr. Burge is an amazing provider! I would refer all my friends and family to his office! ❤❤
Dr.Burge and his team are amazing!! I came in with an issue with my toe and he gave me a quick and simple solution. Dr. Burge's bedside manner is incredible, he is patient and takes the time to thoroughly explain his findings. I'd highly recommend him to anyone!
Dr. Burge has an exceptional bedside manner and is an excellent surgeon!
I was referred from a friend who had dr Burge help with his diabetic foot ulcer. My son came in for an ingrown toenail and we could not have been happier with the experience. The staff was fantastic, super friendly and very helpful. Dr burge is a younger guy related well to my teenage son and was very clear in his explanation of what was going on and how the procedure would progress.We would highly recommend him and his office as a great place to go.
UNFORTUNATELY broke my toe multiple times in the same year. FORTUNATELY I found Dr Burge. One of the kindest doctors I've ever met and such an efficient office. I never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes to be seen. I think my toe kept breaking because it liked him that much!
I can’t say enough about dr burge. His bedside manner is something I crave in every interaction I have. My foot could scare a grown man, and he made me feel like I could be a foot model. His attention to detail and gentle touch will never be forgotten.
Dr. Burge treated my ankle pain and it has not returned.
