Common Foot and Ankle Injuries |

Dr. Thomas San Giovanni, Orthopedic Surgeon with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, says the most common injuries he sees in his daily practice are ligaments and sports injuries.
Arthritis, injuries and deformities of foot and ankles are so common too, he affirms.

Although surgery is always an option in those cases, the doctor explains he never takes that decision without getting little more in depth with the patient’s history and how the condition affects the person’s life.
