Headed by the qualified and experienced foot & ankle surgeon, the centre is equipped with latest technologies that ensure utmost patient’s outcomes and faster recovery.

Of all the foot and injuries, the most common ones are: Achilles Tear, Ankle Sprain, Stress Fractures of the Foot, Ankle Fractures, and Plantar Fasciitis.

At Aster Centre for Foot and Ankle Surgery, we adopt patient-centric treatment approach. Our expert clinical team who comes with the cumulative experience of 50+ years evaluates the patient’s history and present conditions thoroughly. After having a detailed counselling with the patient and the family, we chalk out the customized treatment plan.

Services Offered

At Aster Medcity, we always strive to deliver complete, comprehensive and compassionate care at one-place. All the treatment options are made available to them. The best possible treatment plan is derived keeping the patient's conditions in mind.

  • Ankle Arthritis treatment: Caused usually by Osteoarthritis, ankle arthritis can also be caused by damage from other rheumatic conditions. Ankle arthritis leads to pain, swelling and occasional deformity of the joint. One may require surgery if the symptoms are severe. As Aster Centre for Foot & Ankle Surgery, we perform all sorts of surgeries including Ankle Fusion, Triple Fusion and Ankle Replacement.
  • Bunion Correction: Bunions commonly develop on the side of one’s foot and at the base of one’s big toe. These bony lumps causes your big toe joint to bend towards the other toes. If symptomatic, this might require surgical correction. Osteotomy is performed to straighten the big toe and metatarsals.
  • Hammer Toes Correction: Hallux valgus that causes Bunions may also cause your other toes to become clawed or permanently bent. This condition is known as hammer toes. It can be corrected by (1) arthroplasty or (2) arthrodesis. Both procedures are mostly performed as day care. After about 3 days, you will be able to walk freely without pain.
  • Achilles Tendon Repair Surgery: Largest tendon in our body, Achilles tendon may start to wear as we get older. This may lead to painful swellings within the main tendon. Very occasionally, surgery may be recommended.
  • Ankle Ligament Reconstruction: Clinically known as Brostrom procedure, this procedure helps tighten and firm up one or more ankle ligaments on the outside of your ankle. It is most often performed as an out-patient procedure.
  • Reconstructive Foot Surgery: Reconstructive surgery of the foot and ankle consists of complex surgical repair(s) that may be necessary to regain function or stability, reduce pain, and/or prevent further deformity or disease.
  • Corns and Calluses Treatment: Corns and Calluses are painful regions of the skin that appear between the toes, on the soles of the foot and the hand (hyperkeratosis). Treating this condition involve removing causes of pressure or friction and removing the thickened skin. The podiatrist can cut the thickened skin off. Other modalities include the use of skin care products and salicylic acid.
  • Toenail Surgery (Ingrown Nails Treatment): The initial surgical approach is typically a partial avulsion of the nail plate known as a wedge resection or a complete removal of the toenail. If the ingrown toenail recurs despite this treatment, destruction of the germinal matrix with phenol is recommended. Antibiotics are not needed if surgery is performed.
