Am I a candidate for foot and ankle surgery?

Your provider at Premier Foot and Ankle Center & Elite Upper Extremity and Plastic Surgery determines if you’re a candidate for foot or ankle surgery after a comprehensive examination.

Your feet and ankles are complex body parts made up of bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, cartilage, and tendons supporting your ability to walk, run, climb, and jump. Given the structure and function of these body parts, foot and ankle injuries and conditions are not uncommon.

When you have a foot or ankle problem, your podiatrist at Premier Foot and Ankle Center & Elite Upper Extremity and Plastic Surgery may initially recommend non-surgical treatments, such as physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, and activity modification. 

Your provider may consider you a candidate for foot or ankle surgery if non-surgical treatments fail to improve your underlying condition. In some cases, such as a ruptured Achilles tendon or complex fracture, surgery may be the only option.  

What are the types of foot and ankle surgery?

There are many types of foot and ankle surgical procedures. When performing surgery, your provider at Premier Foot and Ankle Center & Elite Upper Extremity and Plastic Surgery aims to repair and heal your condition.

Some foot and ankle conditions that may benefit from surgery include:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Flat feet
  • Arthritis
  • Neuroma
  • Achilles tendon rupture

Premier Foot and Ankle Center & Elite Upper Extremity and Plastic Surgery excels at corrective foot and ankle surgery and aims to provide cosmetically pleasing results.
