Foot and Ankle Surgery

foot surgery

When it comes to receiving foot and ankle surgery, it’s typically a case by case situation. Some factors that play a role in whether or not you need surgery include the severity of your symptoms as well as your response to other conservative, noninvasive treatment methods.

There are a number of different foot and ankle conditions that may benefit from surgery as a treatment option. Bunions, hammertoe, metatarsal, ankle arthritis, Achilles tendon disorders, Morton’s neuroma, tibialis posterior disorder, and plantar fasciitis are all conditions that may require surgery as a treatment option, depending on their severity. Long-lasting pain relief is typically the biggest takeaway from having surgery performed to remedy your condition.

In order to best prepare for surgery, make sure you have a consultation with your podiatrist about your overall health, discuss any possible changes in medication, and ask any questions you may have about the procedure to go into the treatment with a clear head. In some cases, you may have to refrain from eating and drinking a few hours before the procedure, so make sure you understand what must be done on your end beforehand.

As for recovery, it is recommended that you get plenty of rest, ice the affected area, and keep the area elevated to reduce any possible swelling. In some cases your podiatrist may use splints, surgical shoes or boots, casts, crutches, a walker or a cane depending on how much weight they believe your foot and ankle can bear.

We are pleased to announce that we've recently added the option to have some surgical procedures done in our Willow Street office. There is no need for any pre-op testing such as lab work or a chest x-ray when procedures are performed under local anesthesia.

If you’d like to determine whether surgery is the best option for you and your foot condition, consult with a podiatrist who will be able to give you a proper diagnosis and aid you with your decision.
