Foot and ankle medicine addresses musculoskeletal problems below the knee, from simple sprains or fractures to more serious problems or complex deformities. Christopher DiGiovanni, MD, chief of the Mass General Foot & Ankle Center, spoke with Health Professional Radio about the new foot and ankle research he presented at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) 2018 annual meeting. Dr. DiGiovanni’s AAOS topics included new treatments for peroneal tendon pathologies and better ways to manage diseases of the midfoot, including arthritis. His research also explores ways to enhance bone’s ability to grow in order to help maintain the best structure and function in the foot over time, and how common congenital foot problems can be addressed earlier in patients than ever before.
