The Potential of Foot Surgery

The foot consists of twenty-six bones along with several muscles, joints, and tendons. Many people put consistent pressure on their feet accomplishing everyday activities and can develop foot conditions. Foot surgery may be a solution for relief and may improve everyday quality of life. Common types of foot surgery can relieve the pain and discomfort from bunions, hammertoe, and plantar fasciitis. Additionally, an Achilles tendon injury may require surgery that can properly repair the damaged or torn tendon. If you have foot pain, please consult with a podiatrist who can determine if foot surgery is right for you.

Foot surgery is sometimes necessary to treat a foot ailment. To learn more, contact one of our podiatrists of Cascade Foot Clinic. Our doctors will assist you with all of your foot and ankle needs.

When Is Surgery Necessary?

Foot and ankle surgery is generally reserved for cases in which less invasive, conservative procedures have failed to alleviate the problem. Some of the cases in which surgery may be necessary include:

  • Removing foot deformities like bunions and bone spurs
  • Severe arthritis that has caused bone issues
  • Cosmetic reconstruction

What Types of Surgery Are There?

The type of surgery you receive will depend on the nature of the problem you have. Some of the possible surgeries include:

  • Bunionectomy for painful bunions
  • Surgical fusion for realignment of bones
  • Neuropathy decompression surgery to treat nerve damage

Benefits of Surgery

Although surgery is usually a last resort, it can provide more complete pain relief compared to non-surgical methods and may allow you to finally resume full activity.

Surgical techniques have also become increasingly sophisticated. Techniques like endoscopic surgery allow for smaller incisions and faster recovery times.
