Foot & Ankle

Our foot and ankle surgeon, Dr. Tuvi Mendel, performs minimally-invasive foot and ankle procedures to help you get back to your normal activities with the least amount of downtime possible. Since the entire weight of the body, as well as additional stress, is placed on the foot and ankle, it is one of the most commonly injured areas. It is important you seek orthopaedic attention if you experience abnormal sensations or pain to keep your joints healthy and working properly.
