Sentara Foot & Ankle Center

The Sentara Foot & Ankle Center has continued to grow and flourish in the Hampton Roads area. In early 2018, three new Sentara Foot & Ankle Centers opened for patients to access: Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital, Sentara Princess Anne Hospital and the Orthopedic Hospital at Sentara Leigh. All five Sentara Foot & Ankle Centers have prepared educational materials and clinical protocols for standards of care. Standard metrics are reviewed to assure not only the highest quality of care but also the results of the treatments that can greatly improve the quality of care for patients suffering with foot and ankle pain.

Foot treatments have greatly improved over the years, allowing foot surgeons to offer new options to provide relief from foot and ankle pain. Sentara Foot & Ankle Centers provide both inpatient and outpatient foot and ankle services from both orthopedic foot and ankle surgeons and podiatrists.

Innovative procedures include:

  • Surgical procedures that allow immediate or early weight bearing after surgery.
  • Total ankle replacements for injury, arthritis or deformity.
  • New, less invasive procedures for great toe arthritis (see our surgical and procedural innovations).
  • The Sentara Foot & Ankle Centers are dedicated to foot and ankle health, including education, diagnosis, therapy and surgery. Community seminars continue to draw large crowds of people interested in improving the health of their feet and ankles.


“I had been through a great deal, losing my husband in an accident and suffering my own injuries. When my surgeon suggested a total ankle implant and tailored it to my body, he gave me back the ability to walk comfortably. Now I wear a FitBit in my job as a nurse supervisor, and it tracks me walking five miles a shift.”
