Call for an appointment

Duke’s ankle specialists in Raleigh and Durham are national leaders in treating ankle pain and injuries. As one of the nation’s top-ranked orthopaedic centers, we pioneered ankle replacement surgery, as well as other novel techniques to repair cartilage, tendons and fractures in the ankle bone and ankle joint.

Advanced care for ankle pain and injuries

Whether you are sidelined with an ankle injury or the discomfort of arthritis, you’re in good hands at Duke. Our ankle experts offer advanced care for all conditions that affect the ankle including ankle arthritis, ankle fractures, ligament and tendon injuries including tendonitis, Achilles tendon rupture, Achilles tendinopathy, sports injuries and defects in the ankle bone. Our doctors evaluate your individual needs and offer personalized treatment programs designed to get you back on your feet as soon as possible.

Choose Duke Orthopaedics for your ankle treatment because:

  • Less pain, improved function. Our orthopaedic surgeons use bone and tissue grafts to repair damage to the ankle joint. These new techniques often result in less pain and better function.
  • Benefit from our experience. We helped develop the four ankle joint prostheses currently approved for ankle replacement surgery in the U.S., and continue to develop and test new ankle joint prototypes. As a result, you can benefit from the most current treatment options available.
  • Our skilled experts are on your team. Our orthopaedic and plastic surgeons combine their skills and expertise to carry out complex procedures that involve restoring blood supply to the ankle bone. If blood supply is disrupted, the ankle bone tissue can die. Our orthopaedic program is consistently ranked as one of the top in the country by U.S. News & World Report.
  • Dedicated physical therapy. Our therapists offer the full range of physical therapy treatments for ankle pain, injuries and trauma post-surgery. Our physical therapists work closely with our doctors to create a personalized sport- and activity-specific therapy plan to improve your mobility.
  • Minimally invasive surgery. Our surgeons are pioneering surgeries that use smaller incisions, which can lead to faster recoveries and quicker return to your daily activities.
  • 24-hour access. If you need orthopedic care fast due to pain or injury we offer 24-hour access to appointments. In many cases, a orthopaedic provider may see you the same day you call for an appointment. Learn more about obtaining an appointment within the next 24 hours.
  • Orthopaedic urgent care. If you need immediate care for an injury, Duke Orthopaedics Urgent Care offers orthopaedic-specific care at our Page Road location seven days a week. You will experience the convenience of fast service with no long waits and no unnecessary exposure to sick people.
