Anatomy of the Foot & Ankle
You take thousands of steps each day. There are hundreds of bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles harmoniously working together in your feet and ankles. The foot and ankle create a intricate structure made up of more than 30 joints. They not only allow you to walk, but also facilitate basic movements such as standing, flexing the foot or running and jumping. When an injury or condition disrupts the normal functionality of any of these joints, it can result in pain, muscle weakness and limited mobility.
Given the complex nature of the foot and ankle, personalized care and expertise are especially important when dealing with any related injury or condition. At TCO, our fellowship-trained orthopedic specialists are dedicated to examining, diagnosing and customizing treatment plans to meet the individual needs of our patients. Our goal is to restore both mobility and function to get you back on your feet, pain-free.
From non-operative care and in-office procedures for minor conditions to the latest surgical techniques for more complex disorders and injuries. Whatever your treatment may be, you can expect compassionate care and technical expertise from our dedicated foot and ankle specialists – before, during and after treatment.
An Uncompromised View in Foot & Ankle Diagnosis
TCO has the power and precision of pedCAT™. We can evaluate and diagnose our patients with the confidence that only true weight bearing CT imaging can provide. The pedCAT is the first in-office, ultra-low dose CT solution for the foot and ankle.
TCO can capture both feet simultaneously in standing or seated position in under a minute, or capture a partial single foot in 20 seconds. The full 3D volume is ready to view in less than three minutes.
Enhanced Diagnose From Weight Bearing Views
True weight bearing 3D images overcome crippling limitations such as distortion and superimposition presented in traditional weight bearing plain radiographs, while providing significantly more precise and detailed diagnostic information.
Ultra Low Dose CT Imaging
At virtually the same radiation dose as traditional 2D x-rays and an average of 90 percent less radiation than conventional medical CT scans, the pedCAT assesses a wide spectrum of clinical conditions including fractures, dislocations, arthritic joints, Lisfranc injuries, tarsal coalitions, osteomyelitis, flatfoot condition, metatarsalgia, hallux valgus, bone cysts, fused joints, etc.
