Schedule an appointment with our podiatrist for an evaluation.
Types of Surgery
Some foot conditions that may require surgery include:
- Persistent, painful bunions
- Breaks and fractures
- Plantar fasciitis that does not respond to treatment
- Achilles tendon rupture
No matter what type of surgery you undergo, it’s important to rest and elevate your foot after you return home. Make sure you have a comfortable place to relax following your surgery. You can ice your foot to reduce swelling and take ibuprofen to relieve pain. Our podiatrist may also provide a boot or walking cast to support your foot and ankle while you heal.
