Foot and Ankle Surgery

The foot and ankle program at Humber River Health is one of the largest programs in Canada which provides a wide variety of treatment modalities for both common and complex foot and ankle conditions.

Surgical treatment involves the use of modern surgical techniques, such as minimally invasive surgery, as well as the latest technology in orthopaedic implants and hardware.  Anesthetic techniques involve use of local blocks to avoid general anesthesia.  Nearly all the surgeries are done as outpatients (i.e. no in-hospital stay).

Surgical procedures performed include: minimally invasive forefoot surgery (bunions/hammer toes), total ankle replacements, ankle arthroscopy, minimally invasive Achilles surgery, and complex ankle reconstructions.

List of procedures:

  • Achilles tendon reconstruction
  • Ankle Fusion – Arthroscopic and open
