Sentara Foot & Ankle Center

In early 2017 Sentara Obici Hospital joined Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center as the second Sentara hospital with a dedicated Sentara Foot & Ankle Center. These centers provide both inpatient and outpatient foot and ankle services, including procedures that allow immediate or early weight bearing. The Sentara Foot & Ankle Centers are dedicated exclusively to foot and ankle health, including education, diagnosis, therapy and surgery.

Although the Sentara Foot & Ankle Center only grew 1.2% in 2016, as the sites expand across the regions in 2017, including the addition of the Orthopedic Hospital at Sentara Leigh, Sentara Princess Anne Hospital, and Sentara Virginia Beach Hospital, there will be an expected increased volume. Community seminars continue to draw large crowds of people interested in improving the health of their feet and ankles.

PATIENT CONNECTION

“An old soccer injury to my ankle had gotten so bad that I couldn’t do everything I wanted to as a Boy Scout leader. Plus, my job as a nurse, where my feet are my life, was so painful. I finally had a total ankle replacement. Now I’m virtually pain-free and comfortable standing on my feet all day and camping again with the Boy Scouts.”
