The human foot may not look like much from the outside but, with 52 bones, 66 joints, and countless nerves, blood vessels, muscles, tendons, and ligaments, it's actually one of the body's most complicated structures. When all of the intricate components inside the foot work in concert as they should, it allows for the complex movements needed for motion and balance.
Together, the feet and ankles create an impressive biomechanical structure that can speed you on your way to accomplish almost anything. Unfortunately, a number of common problems can occur in this complex structure—and if they do, they can cause pain or embarrassment and interfere with your activities. Fortunately, when foot or ankle problems threaten to keep you from being active and doing the things you love, Advanced Foot Care is here to help.

Caused when the position of the big toe shifts over time, bunions are a common type of foot deformity that can result in significant pain and embarrassment. Without proper treatment, the condition will continue to progress, potentially leading to complications like nerve damage, arthritis, and additional deformities. We offer a variety of effective treatment options, from conservative methods to advanced surgical procedures.
