Do you have foot or ankle pain caused by an injury, disease, or birth condition that makes it increasingly difficult to move around? Has this pain caused a lot of frustration and a decline in your quality of life? Are you tired of asking for assistance to carry out activities that you used to perform on your own? If so, do not despair!
Reconstructive foot surgery is used to repair birth defects or other defects that were caused by disease or injury.
This highly specialized field of medicine focuses on the surgical reconstruction of your bones, joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments, musculoskeletal system, and more to bring you relief, improve the appearance of your lower extremities, and restore your mobility.
The type of foot reconstruction performed will depend on the following factors:
Your podiatrist may recommend a surgical procedure, such as reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, as a last resort if your body has not responded to conservative treatments, including bracing and physical therapy. Reconstructive procedures may also be recommended if the severity of your condition will not heal properly without reconfiguration.
Your reconstructive foot and ankle surgery will be designed to not only alleviate your discomfort but also restore the appearance and function of your foot and ankle.
At Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Center, we use foot and ankle reconstruction to treat the following:
The following reconstructive surgical procedures can be used to treat foot and ankle discomfort and restore function.
This form of ankle surgery is used to treat severe ankle arthritis. During a total ankle replacement procedure, the damaged portions of bone and cartilage in your joint will be removed and replaced with prosthetic implants. The goal of this ankle surgery is to eliminate pain, inflammation, and swelling.
Advanced arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure used to confirm a diagnosis or perform a surgical procedure within your ankle joint. Tiny incisions will be made, which results in faster healing times and minimal trauma.
Bunion surgery and hammertoe correction can be performed by bone realignment and soft tissue repair along with other techniques to realign the joint or remove the bunion.
Paralytic reconstructive surgery involves a variety of surgical procedures, such as tendon transfer and bone fusion, that can be used to treat conditions such as foot drop, paralytic ankle valgus, pigeon toe, and more.
These outpatient reconstructive foot and ankle surgeries usually require the use of general anesthesia. To receive the maximum amount of benefits after your surgery, you will need to follow all of your surgeon’s post-operative instructions, including keeping your foot elevated. Physical therapy may also be recommended to help improve your mobility.
If you are in pain, reconstructive foot and ankle surgery may be the right option to help get you back on your feet and avoid further foot problems. Schedule an appointment today with our foot and ankle specialists at Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Center!
