Foot Surgery

Surgery on the foot, ankle, or lower leg is usually performed by podiatric surgeons. Foot and ankle surgeries address a wide variety of foot problems, including:

  • Sprains and fractures.
  • Arthritis and joint disease.
  • Benign and malignant tumors.
  • Birth deformities.
  • Bunions.
  • Calluses and warts.
  • Corns and hammertoes.
  • Flatfeet.
  • Heel or toe spurs.
  • Ingrown toenails.
  • Neuromas (nerve tumors).

Many kinds of foot surgeries require you to have your foot immobilized after the procedures with such things as a bandage, splint, surgical shoe, cast, or open sandal. Most surgeons will encourage post-operative exercise of the foot and legs to speed recovery. After sufficient healing time, most patients can resume wearing their usual footwear.

In addition, many patients need additional therapy or treatments after surgery in order to aid in the healing and recovery process. These may include physiotherapy, orthotic devices (foot supports), and special footwear.
