Foot & Ankle Surgeries and Procedures

In instances where conservative treatment has not sufficiently treated your condition, surgical intervention may be indicated. You and your surgeon will work as a team to decide if surgery is right for you. We offer a range of surgical procedures to treat your foot and ankle condition. As with all our treatments, surgery is customized to each individual patient. Our team will ensure you understand what happens before, during and after your surgery. Surgeries we perform include, but are not limited to:

  • Minimally Invasive Surgery – A technique that uses smaller and fewer incisions during surgery, reducing the risk of damage to muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
  • Lapiplasty/3D Bunion Surgery – Corrects the root cause of bunions while dramatically shortening the recuperation time.
  • Bunion/Hammertoe Surgery – Correcting the alignment of the bone and repairing the soft tissues around the big toe.
  • Flatfoot Correction – This procedure combines work on multiple bones and tendons to restore the foot arch and relieve pain.
  • Tendon Transfer Surgery – Surgery that transfers working muscles and tendons to replace a non-working muscle and tendon.
  • Ligament Repair – Restores damaged ligaments. Ligament repair may be needed for high ankle sprains or severe ankle injuries.
  • Achilles Tendon Reconstruction – Achilles tendon surgery can be done with different surgical methods. In some cases, it is possible to repair the tendon; in others, it is necessary to reconstruct it.
  • Arthroscopic Surgery – The surgeon makes a small incision near the ankle joint, then inserts a camera through the incision. The camera allows us to view the inside of your ankle and determine the course of treatment.
  • Fracture Surgery – Fracture treatment may include using screws, plates, or metal rods to repair severe fractures.
  • Ankle Replacement Surgery – This procedure removes the damaged portion of the ankle joint and replaces it with prosthetic parts. This treatment may be an option for patients suffering from arthritis.
  • Limb Salvage – Surgery for infections to avoid a major amputation.
  • Advanced Wound Care

While every surgery may include some risks, most are treatable. Ask your surgeon for the risks associated with your personalized procedure. Some common risks of foot and ankle surgery include:

  • Infection
  • Nerve injury
  • Failure to relieve pain
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Recurrence of the condition
  • Blood clots
  • Continued pain

How Can I Prepare for Ankle and Foot Surgery?

Before surgery, you will be required to provide a list of medicines you take, and you may need to stop taking some medicines ahead of time. You may require preoperative tests like blood work, ultrasound, x-rays, or magnetic resonance imaging.

What to Expect After Surgery

Your surgeon will inform you on what to before, during and after your procedure or surgery. Although recovery may vary depending on your condition, most patients can expect to return to normal daily activities in 1- 3 months.
