Find The Right Foot Surgeon For Bunion Surgery

By Dr. Christopher Milkie of Milwaukee Foot & Ankle Specialists of Milwaukee, WI

If you’re considering surgery to remove a bunion, here are some things you want to consider when selecting a Milwaukee, WI podiatrist to perform the procedure:

There are many doctors in virtually every area of the United States who are qualified to perform your bunion surgery. The goal is to help you discern the real qualifications from deceptive ones. This way, you will be able to determine for yourself whether or not your foot surgeon in Milwaukee, WI is likely to provide you the outcome you want…getting back to enjoying your life with no more bunions.

Board Qualification
The foot surgeons with the most hours of training and most extensive board qualification testing are affiliated with the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. There are other “board certifications” such as the American Board of Foot Surgery and the American Board of Multiple Specialties in Podiatry.

Your foot surgeon should have three years of foot and ankle surgical training in residency after medical school. The more training, the more experience with a wide range of surgical techniques.

Less than 1% of all foot surgeons will have won awards for advancing the field of surgery. If you find one, you have a winner for sure. Check their website for evidence that they are at the top of their field.

Surgery is a science and an art. A good trait in a foot surgeon is one who looks for innovative ways to solve problems.

It is no coincidence that the word “authority” starts with “author.” Those that write books, publish articles in medical journals and use their writing skills to educate other foot surgeons always stay on top of their game. A doctor who plays an active roll in his profession will have many listings. Look for foot doctors with leadership roles in the medical community, such as Department Chair at a hospital, or as an educator for resident physicians.

Surgery should be a great experience because it will be the start of your recovery, and the start of a new more active, more enjoyable life. Spend time researching the person you select for your foot surgery and it will be time well spent. Over 85% of people are satisfied with the results of their surgery, and the relief of pain and constant discomfort is well worth it.
