Dr. Hitin Mathur Noida | Orthopedic Surgeon
Hi, this is Dr Hitin Mathur, senior orhopaedic Surgeon at Fortis C Doc Hospital, new Delhi. As far as the pain in ankle and foot is concerned, a good clinical examination is required to find the exact site and cause of pain. A weight bearing x ray of the affected area will be helpful. I would suggest that you see an orhopaedic surgeon in your area, especially one specialising in foot and ankle like  myself if possible.
