Foot Surgery Q&A

Why would I need foot surgery?

Foot surgery is typically a last resort for chronic foot pain or a physical disability due to underlying disease or injury.

When conservative treatments, such as medications and physical therapy, aren’t enough to ease pain and improve function in your foot, the team at Toetal Podiatry may recommend you for surgery.

You may be a candidate for foot surgery if you have:

  • Bunions
  • Arthritis
  • Heel spurs
  • Hammertoe
  • Structural deformities
  • Enlarged nerves (neuroma)

The Toetal Podiatry medical team also offers surgery to treat fractures, other injuries, or damaged or infected toenails.

What types of foot surgery are available?

The team at Toetal Podiatry offers both minimally invasive and open foot surgeries to address your specific condition.

Minimally invasive foot surgery

Minimally invasive foot surgery allows the providers to treat your condition using only small incisions and specialized surgical tools. This type of surgery allows you to heal quickly and reduces your risk for postsurgical complications.

Your surgeon can perform arthroscopic surgery, which involves inserting a scope with an attached camera through the small incision. The camera sends back real-time images of the inner structures of your foot, so your provider can operate with a high level of precision.

Open foot surgery

Open foot surgery requires longer incisions to access the treatment area. Your provider may need to use open surgical techniques to address structural deformities and other complex conditions.

The providers at Toetal Podiatry also use advanced laser technologies to surgically treat damaged or infected toenails and improve their appearance and health.

Which type of foot surgery is right for me?

The providers at Toetal Podiatry can determine if you’re a candidate for foot surgery by reviewing your medical history and the nature of your condition. The team offers on-site diagnostic testing, including X-rays and ultrasound, to confirm the severity of your foot issues and determine the best treatment method.

Before surgery, you may benefit from medications, injections, or regenerative medicine therapies to heal damage in your foot. When these conservative therapies aren’t working, your provider can customize a surgical plan to your needs.

To find out if you’re a candidate for foot surgery, schedule an evaluation online or by calling Toetal Podiatry today.
