Ankle & Foot Fractures
At Carrollton Foot Center, Dr. Lilly Khavari specializes in treating ankle and foot fractures. Ankle and foot fractures can occur at any age, but the risk of sustaining a fracture increases with age. The most common type of ankle fracture is a stress fracture, which occurs when the bone is subjected to repetitive stress or impact. Stress fractures are common in athletes and military personnel who participate in high-impact activities.
Ankle fractures can also occur as a result of osteoporosis, a condition that causes the bones to become weak and fragile. Osteoporosis is more common in older women, but it can affect anyone. Dr. Khavari works closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals.
Foot fractures are also relatively common, particularly in the metatarsals (the bones in the foot). Metatarsal fractures can occur as a result of direct trauma, such as a fall or a blow to the foot.
The treatment for ankle and foot fractures at Carrollton Foot Center depends on the severity of the fracture and the underlying cause. Treatment options may include rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE), immobilization in a cast or walking boot, physical therapy, and medication to manage pain and inflammation.
In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair the fracture. Dr. Khavari will evaluate the extent of the fracture and work with the patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to their individual needs and goals.
Overall, Dr. Khavari’s treatment approach for ankle and foot fractures at Carrollton Foot Center emphasizes a personalized approach that prioritizes conservative, non-invasive interventions before considering more invasive options. With her expertise in treating ankle and foot fractures, Dr. Khavari works closely with each patient to develop a customized treatment plan that meets their individual needs and goals. The Carrollton Foot Center team is committed to providing comprehensive care and support to patients throughout their treatment journey.
