Foot Surgery Q & A

Why Would I Need Foot Surgery?

Surgery is usually the last resort, but in some cases, it’s necessary. Your podiatrist can help you to determine if surgery is the right treatment option for you.

Before your podiatrist recommends surgery, other methods are typically recommended, such as medications, lifestyle modifications, therapies like shockwave and MLS laser therapy.

Conditions that may warrant foot surgery include:

  • Arthritis
  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Achilles tendon rupture
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Tibialis posterior disorder

If your symptoms are negatively impacting your daily life, if your skin is affected or your feet are quickly becoming deformed, or if other treatments have been unsuccessful, surgery might be the right option.

Before opting for surgery, take time to do your research and discuss the procedure in depth with your podiatrist to ensure you’re fully prepared. Choosing an experienced and highly trained surgeon is especially important.

What are the Different Types of Foot Surgery?

There are many different types of foot surgery, such as:

  • Revisional surgery
  • Bunionectomy
  • Charcot foot
  • Flat foot surgery
  • Total ankle replacement
  • Achilles tendon rupture repair

The right surgery for you depends on the type of injury or complication, the severity, and your individual needs and preferences.
