At BajaOrtho we specialize in the treatment of:

  • Achilles tendon injuries: The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in your body and is uses when you walk, run, or jump. Although the Achilles tendon can withstand great stresses from running and jumping, it is also vulnerable to injury and can tear or rupture
  • Ankle fractures: A fractured ankle can range from a simple break in one bone to several fractures, which could force your ankle out of place
  • Calcaneus and talus fractures: Most often occur during high-energy collisions
  • Lisfranc (Midfoot) Injury: These injuries result if bones in the midfoot are broken or ligaments that support the midfoot are torn
  • Pilon fractures: Pilon fractures affect the bottom of the shinbone at the ankle joint and in most cases both bones in the lower leg are broken near the ankle
  • Sprained ankle: These injuries happen when the foot twists, rolls or turns beyond its normal length. If the force is too strong, the ligaments can tear
  • Toe and forefoot fractures: Broken bones in your metatarsals or in one of your phalanges
  • Adult acquired flatfoot: These condition result in a fallen arch with the foot pointed outward
  • Osteoarthritis: Loss of cartilage of the hip joint that eventually leads to bone rubbing on bone and destruction of the joint
  • Bunions: Sore or swollen joint that connects your big toe to your foot
  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease: A group of disorders that affect the peripheral nerves
  • Claw-toe: Digging down into the soles of your shoes
  • Diabetic foot: Nerve damage and poor circulation
  • Intoeing: feet turn inward instead of pointing straight ahead when walking or running
  • Plantar Fasciitis and Bone Spurs: Occurs when the strong band of tissue that supports the arch of your foot becomes irritated or inflamed
