A surgeon and other staff in scrubs and masks operate on a patient’s foot. The team at NCSH is committed to providing every patient with an exceptional surgical experience, from the moment the procedure is scheduled through recovery.

Every patient receives personalized care from an ankle and foot specialist who focuses on their unique needs. Our team of collaborative specialists has access to the best possible technology and surgical approach to ensure a full recovery.

Whatever type of injury or condition is bothering you, one of our ankle and foot orthopedic specialists can help. Our patients seek treatment at NCSH for some of the following conditions:

Do You Need Foot or Ankle Surgery?

While some injuries clearly require immediate surgical intervention, most podiatrists and orthopedic surgeons recommend surgery only after less invasive treatments—like rest, medication, and physical therapy—have not produced the desired results.

We recommend seeing your doctor if you have persistent foot and ankle pain, immobility, swelling, or any of the following symptoms:

  • Pain that lasts longer than two weeks
  • Swelling, tenderness, obvious deformity, or color changes to the skin or toenails
  • Inability to stand or walk without pain
  • Pain that persists even without putting any weight on the limb
  • Stiffness or limited range of motion

Any of these symptoms could be a sign of a serious condition that requires treatment. Our orthopedists always evaluate patients carefully and recommend conservative, non-surgical treatments first. If those approaches don’t bring relief or get you active again, you could be a candidate for surgery.

Why Choose NCSH for Your Foot and Ankle Surgery?

When you trust NCSH for surgical treatment of foot and ankle conditions, you are putting your care in the hands of some North Carolina’s most accomplished surgeons.

Our team of orthopedic foot and ankle doctors and podiatrists is one of the most highly skilled groups in the southeastern United States, and the hospital has achieved a five-star rating from CMS for patient experience.

NCSH is a physician-owned facility, which means that our specialists have more control over patient care. They work with patients to help them make the best decisions.

NCSH’s commitment to exceptional care is not limited to the operating room, though. Some of the other advantages of this surgical center include:

Comfortable rooms. While many procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, allowing you to go home the same day, if you need to remain overnight, you will enjoy a spacious private room with modern amenities and delicious meals throughout your stay.

Individualized care. We maintain a ratio of just four patients to every nurse. This allows us to ensure every patient receives the attentive care they deserve.

Discharge planning. Every patient goes home with the resources they need for a full recovery.

North Carolina Specialty Hospital is committed to patient satisfaction while delivering the highest level of care to achieve the best possible outcomes in foot and ankle surgeries.
