Foot and Ankle Reconstruction at Mercy - Baltimore

The surgeons at The Institute for Foot and Ankle Reconstruction at Mercy in Baltimore focus on diagnosing and treating foot and ankle deformities, such as flat foot. 

What is Flat Foot Reconstruction?

There are certain flat foot deformities in which the foot is so very flat it is not in the patient’s best interest to have orthotic arch support treatment. In these individuals the foot is so deformed and under so much stress, severe ankle arthritis develops. Flat foot reconstruction may be the best treatment option for these patients.

Surgical treatment for the adult’s flat foot deformity is divided into two different types:

  • Tendons are repaired or transferred
  • Joints are fused together

It is always preferable to avoid a fusion (called arthrodesis) of the foot if possible, since stiffness of the foot is never ideal. The extent of the deformity is the key factor in the decision.
