Endoscopy and arthroscopy of the ankle and foot

The ankle joint is responsible for the movements of the foot and is involved in normal day-to-day activities.

The team led by Prof. Dr. Elgeadi has ankle and foot specialist traumatologists. Endoscopy and ankle arthroscopy are techniques performed by pioneering professionals at a national and international level.

Resolving doubts…

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the connective tissue on the sole of the foot, specifically the fibrous band called the plantar fascia.

This can cause heel pain, especially when taking your first steps in the morning.

Common symptoms include sharp pain in the heel, a feeling of stiffness in the bottom of the foot, pain when standing or walking long distances.

Plantar fasciitis can be caused by overuse of the foot, wearing improper footwear, or stress on the arch of the foot.

Treatment may include physical therapy, stretching exercises, use of foot orthoses, ice application, and pain medications. In persistent cases, options such as shock wave therapy or corticosteroid injections may be considered.

Achilles tendinitis, also known as Achilles tendonitis, is inflammation of the tendon that connects the calf muscles to the heel bone.

It can be caused by overuse, injury, or biomechanical factors.

Common symptoms include pain in the heel or back of the leg, tenderness, and stiffness in the Achilles tendon. The pain may worsen when walking, running, or jumping.

Treatment may include rest, icing, physical therapy to strengthen the calf muscles, use of heel cups or wedges to reduce stress on the tendon, and, in severe cases, immobilization with an orthopedic boot or surgery.

Peroneal tendonitis is inflammation of the peroneal tendons found on the side of the ankle.

This can occur due to injury, overuse, or ankle instability. Common symptoms include pain on the outside of the ankle, weakness in outward movements of the foot, swelling and tenderness in the affected area.

Treatment may include rest, icing, physical therapy to strengthen the peroneal muscles and improve ankle stability, use of supports or bandages, and, in severe cases, surgery to repair damaged tendons.

Tibialis posterior tendonitis is inflammation of the tendon found on the inside of the ankle and is responsible for maintaining the arch of the foot.

It can be caused by overuse, injury, or anatomical factors.

Common symptoms include pain and tenderness on the inside of the ankle and arch of the foot, weakness in the calf muscles, difficulty walking or running, and flattening of the arch of the foot.

Treatment may include rest, icing, physical therapy to strengthen the muscles of the foot and ankle, use of braces or insoles to support the arch, and, in severe cases, surgery to repair the tendon or correct structural deformities.

Finger flexor or extensor tendonitis is inflammation of the tendons that control the flexion and extension movements of the fingers.

It can be caused by repetitive activities, trauma, or inflammatory diseases.

Common symptoms include pain in the tendons of the fingers, difficulty moving the fingers, swelling and tenderness in the affected area.

Treatment may include rest, icing, physical therapy to strengthen muscles and tendons, splinting or temporary immobilization, and medications for pain and inflammation.

In persistent cases, corticosteroid injections or, in severe cases, surgery to repair or release damaged tendons may be considered.

Ankle articular cartilage injuries can occur as a result of trauma, wear and tear, or degenerative diseases.

These injuries can affect the cartilage that covers the joint surfaces of the ankle, causing pain, inflammation and limitation in movement.

Common symptoms include ankle pain, swelling, a feeling of locking or clicking in the joint, and difficulty walking or doing physical activities.

Treatment will depend on the severity and type of injury, but may include rest, immobilization, physical therapy to strengthen the muscles around the ankle, pain medication, and, in some cases, surgery to repair or regenerate damaged cartilage.

Morton's neuroma is a thickening of the tissue surrounding the nerves between the toes.

This can cause severe pain, burning, numbness, and the feeling of having a stone in your shoe.

Common symptoms include pain in the front of the foot, especially between the third and fourth toes, a feeling of having a lump or bump on the foot, and tingling or numbness in the affected toes.

Treatment may include changes in footwear, use of pads or supports to relieve pressure on the affected area, physical therapy to strengthen the muscles in the foot and relieve tension on the nerves, and in severe cases, corticosteroid injections or surgery to remove the neuroma.

Ankle instability is a condition in which the ankle is prone to sprains or is unable to maintain adequate stability during physical activity.

It can be caused by previous injuries, muscle weakness, ligament laxity, or biomechanical imbalances.

Common symptoms include feeling unstable or unsupported in the ankle, frequent strains or sprains, recurrent swelling, and weakness in the ankle muscles.

Treatment may include physical therapy to strengthen muscles and improve stability, balance and proprioception exercises, use of supports or taping during physical activity, and in severe or chronic cases, surgery to repair damaged ligaments or rebuild ankle stability.
