Foot & Ankle

Did you know that 20% of the population experiences foot and ankle pain in any given year?

Healthy feet and ankles are fundamental to a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, foot and ankle problems may often lead to debilitating pain, discomfort, and even deformity.

Life is Motion

Life is motion, and SBO provides the comprehensive and collaborative care to help you get moving again. Our surgeons specialize in foot and ankle pain, trauma, sports-related injuries, deformity and arthritic reconstruction, and other disorders. From nonsurgical to surgical procedures, our surgeons are dedicated to keeping you on the move. You work, live, and play on your feet. Our goal is to get you back to doing the activities that you need and want to do.

Prompt, Efficient, and Effective Treatment

You rely on your feet every day. We seek to understand our patient’s goals whether it be quick and safe return to play for our University of Notre Dame, high school, or professional athletes to our community grandparents who simply want to play with their grandchildren without pain and be able to fit into normal shoes. That’s why even the simplest of foot and ankle problems need to be addressed promptly and professionally. Addressing these medical issues promptly, efficiently, and effectively is imperative.

Team Approach

In addition to our surgeons, our practice relies on a dedicated team of professionals who put the patient first, including Physician Assistants, Physical Therapists, Nurses, and Medical Assistants. We understand the medical conditions affecting the whole body and can recognize and integrate best practices that may impact a patient’s condition beyond the feet and ankles.
