Flat Foot a variety of treatment options, often used in combination, are available to treat tarsal tunnel syndrome. These include:
Most flatfeet are flexible and can be treated well with orthoses and specific exercises. Mr. Ozan Amir works closely with Podiatrists and will refer you to one of his colleagues near your area to have orthoses fabricated.
In a minority of cases, conservative care does not alleviate the symptoms that can be associated with flatfeet. When this is the case Ozan will order the appropriate x-rays to evaluate the severity of deformity.
There are a number of surgical procedures available to correct and restore the alignment of the flatfoot, inlcuding minimally invasive procedures such as the hyprocure extra-articular subtalar joint implants and a multitude of other ‘traditional open’ tendon and bone re-alignment procedures.
Ozan will discuss in depth with you which procedure(s) would be suitable for you, so you can make an informed decision on how to proceed.
