Foot Surgeons Providing You Thorough Care
In some cases, foot problems do not respond to conservative treatments. A podiatrist can best determine when foot surgery might be beneficial to you. In most cases when pain or deformity happens, surgery will be needed to restore full foot function or be an alternative to provide long-term pain relief.
The length and method of postoperative care that is needed is determined by the type of surgery performed. Most foot and ankle surgeries can be performed on an outpatient basis in a comfortable ambulatory surgery center.
More often you will be able to walk right away in a special surgical shoe or boot. All postoperative care will include some degree of rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Other elements can include bandages, splints, surgical shoes, casts, crutches, and canes. Call Twin Rivers Podiatry today to schedule your apoointment!
