Foot and Ankle Surgery
Patients undergoing an elective procedure will need to have a COVID-19 test done 4-6 business days before their procedure. For your convenience, we opened a curbside COVID-19 Pre-Procedural Testing Center where you can have the test performed from your car The Center is located at N. Broadway and 8th Ave. N outside near SameDay Care. Your care team will schedule a time for you to have your test done at the Center. Testing samples are sent to Mayo Clinic for analysis and take about four to six business days for results. Patients will need to self-quarantine for the period of time between the test sample being collected and the date of their procedure. Thank you for taking this important step to protect yourself, our care team, and other patients.
This Center is specifically for patients scheduled for a procedure who do not have symptoms of COVID-19. Symptomatic patients can call Healthline at (406) 255-8400 or 1-800-252-1246.
The foot and ankle surgery team at Billings Clinic Orthopedics & Sports Medicine works closely with our podiatrists and understands that foot and ankle problems dramatically impact mobility and comfort since symptoms may be magnified by walking and standing.
That’s why we offer cutting edge treatment for conditions affecting the foot and ankle. Successful treatment of these conditions requires advanced understanding of the interaction between foot and ankle anatomy and the mechanics of mobility. For this reason, foot and ankle surgery has become a highly sub-specialized field.
Our services include:
- Arthroscopic surgery, ankle and subtalar joints
- Treatment of sports injuries and high-level athletes
- Treatment of both simple and complex fractures and dislocations
- Fusion operations for severe arthritis
- Total ankle replacement
- Complex reconstructive procedures for foot deformities and tendon disruptions
- Correction of toe deformities such as bunions, hammertoes and claw toes
We care for many athletes with foot and ankle problems. We offer a full spectrum of casting and bracing options and work closely with local prosthetic and orthotic experts for custom-molded inserts or braces. Billings Clinic Orthopedics & Sports Medicine also has fully trained physical therapists on staff that can mold orthotics.
