Before recommending surgery, the team at Metroplex Foot and Ankle, LLP recommends conservative treatments, including rest, ice, orthotics, braces, and medication. When these conservative treatments aren’t enough to resolve pain and dysfunction, surgery may be a necessary step.
You may benefit from foot surgery if you have a diagnosed foot problem or injury that results in pain, swelling, or movement limitations.
Surgery at Metroplex Foot and Ankle, LLP includes procedures for:
If you have bunions, you may also undergo one of several types of surgery. Your surgeon may remove a part of the big toe bone to straighten it out or remove swollen tissue around your big toe. Bunion surgery may also permanently join the bones of the affected joint or realign the forefoot bones to correct the abnormal big toe joint angle.
Your surgeon performs these as minimally invasive procedures whenever possible. This means they use small incisions and tiny instruments to complete your procedure. Minimally invasive procedures equal faster healing, less blood loss, and reduced risk of infection.
The team at Metroplex Foot and Ankle, LLP works with a surgical center to schedule your procedure. Most surgeries are outpatient, meaning you go home to recover after your procedure.
The details of your surgery depend on your particular case. In most cases, your surgeon uses regional anesthesia to numb the area being treated. Once the surgery is complete, you’re sent to a recovery room for observation. When you’re able to move about and your vitals are back to normal, you can go home. You will need a driver to and from your surgical appointment.
