About Us

On an average day, most of us take our feet and ankles for granted. But when problems start to arise, pain, embarrassment, and even disability can quickly remind you of how important well-functioning feet actually are. Yet, far too many people try to ignore these issues, or at least hope they will go away in time – and that’s a huge mistake!

When left untreated, easy to address foot and ankle conditions can turn into serious problems which may require more intensive and invasive treatment methods to be resolved, including surgery. And we know you don’t want lower-limb issues to hold you back from doing the things you love most – so don’t delay treatment.

If you need professional care for any foot or ankle condition, our team at Western Montana Foot & Ankle is here to help.
