Foot Surgery & Ankle Surgery

Foot surgery or ankle surgery is often necessary to alleviate pain or correct deformities, such as bunions. Our Northwest Indiana foot surgeons have completed extensive training in foot and ankle surgery beyond the typical four years of podiatry school.

If you have a painful bunion, please consider making an appointment with one of our podiatrists — there is a reason why our podiatry practice has earned the “Best Podiatrist” award from the Post-Tribune and “Best of the Region” from the NWI Times repeatedly — in fact,  nine times!

Incidentally, Dr. Nirenberg or “Dr. Mike” as patients call him, has helped law enforcement, including the FBI, on homicide cases involving foot-related evidence (such as footprints) and gait analysis. His foot and ankle expertise has been sought by numerous media, including USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, WBBM radio and FOX News (click here to read more news).

Most of the foot surgery our foot surgeons do to correct toe, heel, foot or ankle problems are performed on an out-patient basis at local hospitals or surgical centers in Northwest Indiana. This means that when you have us do your foot surgery or your ankle surgery you get to go home the same day. Incidentally, most of our foot surgery or ankle surgery patients can walk the same day and usually experience minimal to no discomfort.

Dr. Nirenberg is a Fellow of the Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons and has trained with the inventor of the HyProCure procedure to correct flateet, Dr. Michael Graham.

Common Foot & Ankle Problems That May Need Surgery

Our Northwest Indiana foot surgeons perform foot surgery (or toe surgery, heel surgery or ankle surgery) to correct a huge number of toe, heel, foot and ankle problems, but some problems are more common. The common foot and ankle problems our podiatric surgeons see include:

Hammertoe Bunion

Hammertoe and Bunion Surgery with an Overlapping toe

Foot and ankle surgery is both an art and a science. Whether you have a painful hammertoe, corn, callous, unsightly and sore bunion, heel pain or ankle arthritis, our podiatrists may be able to help you – visit our Northwest Indiana office today!

Some people have more than one foot problem that may need surgery. The photo shows a woman who may need surgery for her bunion (the bump on the side of the foot) and also for the painful hammertoe (the bent toe).

In this case, the photo of the foot shows the second toe is actually overlapping the first toe. An overlapping toe deformity can be quite painful and often require surgery to alleviate the problem.

Our foot surgeons understand how important it is for you to have your heel, foot or ankle problem solved and have your foot looking as attractive as possible and they will work with you so you achieve the best possible result.

Additionally, our podiatrists utilize hi-technology, including:

  • Digital x-rays to help evaluate your foot deformity or diagnose your foot or ankle problem rapidly. Digital x-rays provide superior detail over conventional x-rays and allow our doctors to carefully visualize the bone. Plus, our digital x-rays give off less radiation than ordinary x-rays — which helps keep our patients (and team members) safe!
  • Computerized circulation testing to evaluate vascular or circulation problems. Circulation or PVD (or PAD) issues can occur in people of all ages, though our vascular testing may be most important for people with diabetes who require surgery.
  • Diagnostic ultrasound to evaluate soft-tissue problems, such as cysts (ganglion cysts), masses or tumors quickly. Diagnostic ultrasound is less costly than an MRI and it can help our podiatrists understand your problem in just a few minutes. .
