Diagnosis by the orthopedic surgeon in Toulon

If you have a problem with the forefoot, the hindfoot or have a trauma caused by sport, Dr.Julien Lopez, can guide and offer you a suitable treatment whatever your condition.

As soon as any discomfort or pain appears, do not hesitate to contact Dr Julien Lopez. Through his analysis, he will know how to help you in your treatment whether medical or surgical.

Before proposing treatment, the surgeon systematically conducts a detailed clinical examination. He begins by observing the foot and the deformation. The objective is to identify the condition behind the deformation but also to determine the extent and consequences of it. He can then make a diagnosis.

In order to confirm the diagnosis, different examinations may be required: radiography, ultrasound, scanner, MRI, arthro-scanner, NM, etc.

The scanner is used to analyze the relationships between the different bones of the foot. It is particularly effective in identifying fractures or bone tears. It is also used to analyze joints and identify osteoarthritis of the foot.

The purpose of the ultrasound is to observe the superficial and deep structures of the foot and the soft parts (tendons and ligaments). During this examination, the foot is sometimes set in motion to study how dynamic the foot is.

An MRI is used to observe and analyze soft parts of the foot. Through this examination, it is possible to detect swelling, effusion, bruising, intraosseous swelling, fatigue fractures and cartilage.

During your consultation with the surgeon, remember to bring all the results of your medical examinations.

Once the diagnosis is confirmed, Dr. Julien Lopez is able to propose a treatment adapted to the condition identified.
