As a society, we are constantly on our feet, so it is imperative that we keep them healthy!

Whether the issues are caused by longer life expectancy, heavier body weight, or even just the fact that we are trying to become more active, our feet are becoming more important to us each and every day.

Children are competing in athletics at higher levels. People are living longer. Weight gain in adults and children are more problematic. Foot and ankle complaints and concerns are touching every life and every family.

As a foot & ankle specialist, Dr. Brandt Gibson sees these problems on a regular basis and can provide key insights into these concerns.

WHO Do We Treat?

Here at Mountain West Foot & Ankle Institute, we provide care for all people from the very young to the very old, from the inactive to the highly active, and can usually help all overcome problems with the foot or ankle.

  • Your Family: Everyone in your home, old and young, need to keep their feet healthy and functional so they can stay active and enjoy all this life has to give.  
  • Women: In a society that emphasizes aesthetically pleasing woman’s shoe gear, it is no wonder that women have four times as many foot problems as men. High heels and pointed toed shoes are often functionally devastating shoe gear and may propagate ambulation abnormalities and the development of foot deformities, including painful bunions and hammer toes.
  • ChildrenMany congenital and developmental foot and leg disorders or abnormalities can be caught at an early age through screenings, early diagnosis and treatment. Early foot and ankle care can also prevent the health problems they have inherited from you.
  • Elderly: It is a well-known fact that the overall health and well being of the geriatric patient, both mentally and physically, is related to their ability to perform their daily activities. Podiatric medicine can help maintain the ambulatory status.
  • AthletesIncreasing numbers of youth and adults are participating in athletics and exercise. We are able to provide advice for training, athletic shoe gear, orthotics or shoe inserts, and prevention of injury. Treatment of acute and chronic injuries can also be provided.
  • Diabetics: Diabetes is a significant systemic disease that has multiple manifestations in the lower extremities. These manifestations include impairment of blood flow to the feet, decreased sensation, and impaired immune system. Regular follow up with a foot and ankle specialist is recommended.
