“I suffered a football injury during practice and I was so afraid I was going to miss the big game. Dr. Galante helped me get back on my feet just in time for the championship. He’s very professional and has a great personality!” – Mike G.

What is Foot and Ankle Trauma?

Trauma is a word commonly misrepresented, leading people to think the worst. When in reality, trauma simply indicates a physical injury of some sort. So the answer to the question above is quite simple: foot and ankle trauma is an injury to those specific areas resulting from an external source. Now, clearly there are varying levels of trauma that range in severity. Regardless, it is important to take care of these issues immediately so they do not develop into a more serious condition. By doing so, you will reap the benefits trauma care has to offer.
