Foot Surgery Q & A

What conditions require foot surgery?

Your podiatrist may recommend foot surgery for a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Achilles tendon rupture
  • Bunions
  • Hammertoe
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Neuropathy
  • Heel spur
  • Arthritis
  • Fractures

The goal of foot surgery is to correct or repair the underlying cause of your condition and to restore your foot’s health. 

Although your podiatrist can treat many foot problems through conservative methods, sometimes surgery is the only way to provide long-lasting relief from your symptoms. 

If you suffer from a foot or ankle problem, the specialists at West Suburban Podiatry can determine if foot surgery is right for you. 

How do I know if I need foot surgery?

In most cases, your podiatrist recommends foot surgery when your condition doesn’t improve with conservative treatment. Your podiatrist may also recommend surgery if your issue is severe or causes significant pain. 

During your first visit to West Suburban Podiatry, your doctor performs a thorough examination to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms and the severity of your condition. In addition to a physical, your assessment may include additional tests like an X-ray or MRI. 

After your examination, you and your doctor work together to determine the best treatment. The specialists at West Suburban Podiatry take the time to listen to each patient, ensuring individualized and transparent care. 

What procedures are available?

Standard foot procedures include:

  • Achilles tendon repair
  • Bunions surgery
  • Hammertoe surgery
  • Fracture repair
  • Plantar fascia release
  • Nerve decompression

West Suburban Podiatry offers a wide range of safe and effective surgeries. In many cases, your surgeon can perform your procedure using minimally invasive techniques. 

Minimally invasive foot surgery causes less damage than traditional surgery, resulting in less pain, fewer complications, and quicker healing times. During your appointment, your doctor determines which procedure is right for your condition. 

What happens after my procedure?

Recovery depends on which procedure you undergo. After your procedure, your surgeon continues to work with you to ensure a successful recovery. Your surgeon may recommend pain medication to help you stay comfortable as you heal. 

If your surgeon performs a minimally invasive procedure, you can expect less pain and a quicker recovery time than traditional surgery. In many cases, your doctor may recommend physical therapy after your surgery to help you regain your strength and stability.
