Foot & Ankle



If you have a foot or ankle problem, the Allegheny Health Network Orthopaedic Institute can help you to regain mobility and enjoy a higher quality of life. We give you every available treatment option, including non-surgical therapeutic interventions and the latest surgical approaches.

We treat a wide range of problems—from congenital diseases to conditions caused by injury, illness, poor-fitting shoes and simply wear and tear over time. Our goal is to decrease pain and restore function as quickly and safely as possible.

Our multidisciplinary team of surgeons and therapists will coordinate your personalized treatment plan every step of the way, supporting your challenges, keeping your spirits up, listening to your concerns and strengthening your overall well-being.

Why the Orthopaedic Institute?

Expertise and teamwork
Our team is recognized by many as the region’s premier provider of basic and complex foot, ankle and lower leg care. What makes our team so effective is its multidisciplinary approach to treating foot and ankle problems. We bring together surgeons, pedorthists (experts on shoe care), orthotists (experts on bracing options), nurses and physical therapists to tailor a treatment plan that addresses all of your needs.

Personalized care and attention
At the Orthopaedic Institute, compassion and values are just as critical as treatments and cures. Our doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals promote an environment where you feel like you are their only patient. You will be surrounded by a dedicated team who will make your care, comfortable, compassionate and reassuring.

Progressive research
Our researchers are leading the way to find groundbreaking treatments for foot and ankle problems. This could eventually offer better outcomes for patients with major injuries and substantial pain. You may also be eligible to enroll in one of our newest clinical trials.

Care close to home
We know how important time is to you. For your comfort and convenience, you can see foot and ankle specialists at a number of Allegheny Health Network hospitals, as well as at a growing number of outpatient clinics.
