Foot and Ankle
UVA Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Division
January 2014 - Dr. V. Perumal appears on local NBC affiliate
Program "House Calls" discussing Conditions Treated in the Foot
and Ankle Division of UVa Medical Center.....
The Division of Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgery at the University
of Virginia provides integrated,
comprehensive care for a wide spectrum of disorders of the lower extremity. Our team specializes in the
treatment of sports injuries, arthritis, tendon dysfunction/ruptures, flatfoot
deformity, adolescent/congenital deformity, fractures/dislocations,
diabetic/Charcot deformity, and symptomatic forefoot deformity. By working closely with
physical therapists and UVA’s Prosthetics and Orthotics Department, we are
able to offer the most effective conservative management for these disorders.
When surgical intervention is necessary, we utilize advanced techniques
including ankle arthroplasty,
arthroscopic surgery, allograft
ligament/tendon reconstruction, and bone marrow/stem cell augmentation.
As the Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle
Consultants to both the University of Virginia and James Madison University Athletic
Departments, our Division is uniquely qualified to treat foot and ankle injuries in
high level athletes. This same level of expertise and attention to detail is
also used in treating patients of all ages and activity levels. We receive
referrals from physicians throughout Virginia and beyond, and take great pride in
cultivating these relationships within our extended community.
We are able to provide a
multi-disciplinary approach to the care of patients with complex foot and ankle pathology due to our
close collaborations with the Plastic Surgery, Vascular, Medicine, Infectious
Diseases, Prosthetics and Orthotics, Anesthesia, and
Departments at UVA. Our mission is to restore function and
improve quality of life through
this coordinated approach to the treatment of foot and ankle disorders.
