Foot and ankle surgery is one of the fastest growing sub-specialties of Orthopedics. It has come of age with advanced techniques for assessment & reconstruction allowing faster return to normal activities after surgery. The patient expectation of restoration of normal foot and ankle function following treatment has spurred innovative research, and development of surgical and rehabilita-tion techniques which enhance recovery. This is more so with sports injuries and the athletic popu-lation. The main aim of bringing out this Foot & Ankle series has been to highlight recent innova-tive techniques for managing challenging foot and ankle problems.
