Some orthopaedic surgeons specialise in disorders of the foot and ankle. They deal with foot conditions such as bunions, Hallux Rigidus, Lesser Toe Deformities, Mortons Neuroma and fractures. Ankle conditions treated include Footballer's Ankle, ankle instability, posterior impingement, OCDs, tendon problems and arthritis of the ankle.
There is a professional association for orthopaedic surgeons in the UK who have a special interest in foot and ankle surgery and treatment - the British Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (BOFAS, formerly BOFFS). The British Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society, affiliated to the British Orthopaedic Association and to the European Foot and Ankle Society was founded as a result of an increasing interest in foot and ankle surgery in the UK. Most UK foot and ankle specialists will belong to this organisation.
The British Orthopaedic Association is the professional association for over 4,000 surgeons and training surgeons treating injuries and disorders of bones, joints and their associated tissues.
