The main focus of the foot surgery is on operative and conservative treatment of congenital or acquired problems in the foot and ankle area of people of all ages. The foot and ankle represent a very complex unit consisting of 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 ligaments, tendons and capsules.
Special knowledge is required to treat disorders or deformities of this system, whose correct functioning depends not only on coordinated interplay of the forefoot, midfoot and hindfoot, but also on the balance of the muscles involved. Our expert Dr. med. Wolfram Wenz uses his many years of experience to treat people at EXPERTS FIRST – also in complex cases or after unsuccessful correction attempts elsewhere. The goal of the treatment is always painless and functional reconstruction, taking the muscle balance into consideration.
Reconstructive forefoot surgery deals with a frequently-occurring foot problem: toe misalignment. With the aid of effective orthopaedic measures, Dr. Wenz can reduce your symptoms in the following areas and correct the foot position:
(stiff big toe)
Big toe joint arthrosis
Hammer toe and claw toe correction
(inflammation of the plantar fascia on the sole of the foot)
The area of reconstructive hindfoot surgery deals with hindfoot disorders. Hindfoot surgery is a demanding challenge from a medical point of view, since there are only a few experienced specialists in this field. At EXPERTS FIRST, Dr. Wenz will provide you with his expertise in the following areas:
Congenital club foot, particularly recurrent club foot surgery at any age
Neurogenic foot deformities (club foot, pigeon toes, planovalgus foot, drop foot and talipes calcaneus)
Post-traumatic foot deformities
Degenerative foot deformities (arthrosis, rheumatoid arthritis etc.)
Diabetic foot, including Charcot foot
Neuro-orthopaedics deals with numerous diseases that occur due to changes in muscle function and can therefore lead to functional or structural deformities in the musculoskeletal system. Neuro-orthopaedic diseases include:
Neuropathies (HMSN / CMT)
Polio or post-polio syndrome
Operations after traumatic brain injuries or apoplexy
Infantile cerebral palsy
- Combined bony / soft tissue multi-level operations
- Contracture elimination
- Foot corrections
Spina bifida ("open back", a congenital defect
of the spine / the spinal cord)
- Function-improving operations to the knee/the foot
Dr. Wenz provides optimum care with professional orthopaedic surgery for injuries caused by accidents or ruptured tendons, such as the Achilles tendon.
