From Foot Surgery to an Ankle Brace—Discover Welcome Relief for Your Feet

Comprehensive foot and ankle care services are just steps away at Glacial Ridge Health System and our Glacial Ridge Center for Surgical Care. Podiatry is the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the foot and ankle. The foot and ankle are a complex area of the human skeletal system. Your feet have more than 100 muscles, ligaments, and tendons, and more than a quarter of your body’s bones. Obtaining expertise in this region of the body requires years of training, education, and practice by a podiatrist.
