Our feet help us maintain our stance and help us get to where we need to go. Making sure you are maintaining the health and integrity of your feet is important for staying mobile. It would be unfortunate to not be able to move around the way you want, because we neglect our foot and ankle health. At Beyond Podiatry, we specialize in the health and wellness of our clients’ feet. If you are experiencing discomfort and have been unable to find relief from your foot or ankle pain, our providers can recommend effective foot & ankle surgery options to get at the heart of your concerns.
Why Have Foot or Ankle Surgery?
The decision to have foot and ankle surgery is usually based on lifestyle choices and the information given by surgeons. If your skin is affected or your feet are quickly becoming deformed, it’s important to get an assessment for urgent surgery to avoid infection and alert your healthcare professionals. Common conditions that may require surgery include bunions and hammertoes, ankle arthritis, achilles tendon injuries, and plantar fasciitis. Before your surgery, your doctor or nurse will check your general health and give you information about preparing for the operation. Ask about any possible changes to your medication and any other questions you may have during your consultation.
Benefits of Foot and Ankle Surgery
Foot and ankle surgery is meant to treat symptoms and conditions affecting the foot and ankle, such as bunions, heel pain (plantar fasciitis), flat foot, foot or ankle arthritis, and sports injuries. These operations may sometimes be necessary for certain tendon disorders, fractures (broken bones), diabetes complications, ingrown toenails, neuromas, dermatological conditions, tingly feet, hammertoes, and other such conditions.
