CHARCOT JOINT  

About Charcot Joint Treatment

Charcot foot is one of the more critical foot problems that can develop due to poor circulation and nerve damage. It is a condition which can deform the shape of the foot and lead to disability. Initial symptoms often go unnoticed until the more structural symptoms start to present themselves. 
Symptoms of Charcot Joint are as follows
  • Mild to severe swelling
  • Inflammation
  • Erythema
  • Joint effusion
  • Bone resorption
  • Loss of sensation
At Specialist Foot and Ankle Group we utilise the latest techniques to manage conditions of the foot and ankle. Our aim is to explore non operative techniques in the first instance or when necessary provide joint preserving minimally invasive surgical options. Even minimally invasive techniques can carry some risks, however, this technique does allow more possibilities in the management of disease. Before deciding on surgery it is important you feel comfortable with your decision therefore we like to allow ample opportunity for you to ask any relevant questions. It may be useful to write down any questions you would like to ask Dr Slater and bring them along to your appointment. Alternatively, please feel free to contact our friendly staff.

At Specialist Foot and Ankle Group our aim is to provide you with the latest techniques to ensure optimal results.
