Reconstructive Foot & Ankle Surgery Q & A

What is reconstructive foot and ankle surgery?

This is an umbrella term for a surgical specialty that emphasizes restoring function to your feet and ankles. As experts in this type of surgery, the team at Precision Podiatry is ready to help you make the best choice for your feet. They won’t recommend surgery until you’ve first explored all of your nonsurgical treatment options. 

In some cases, though, surgery is the best choice to fully restore functionality to your feet and keep you pain-free. While many people want to avoid surgery, it can be the key to helping you feel your best. Although there is downtime associated with a surgical procedure, once your surgery site heals, you feel dramatically better. Your surgeon’s goal is to give you normally functioning, pain-free feet, and ankles so you can maintain an active lifestyle and do the things you love unhindered. 

What are the different types of reconstructive foot and ankle surgery?

This surgical specialty encompasses a wide variety of procedures, each designed to address a specific issue in your foot. At Precision Podiatry, the team of expert surgeons offers:

  • Endoscopic plantar fasciotomy
  • Rheumatoid foot reconstruction
  • Ankle arthroscopy
  • Flatfoot reconstruction
  • Minimally invasive heel pain surgery

If you have a specific condition that’s bothering you or you have general chronic foot pain, don’t hesitate to ask your Precision Podiatry provider about your treatment options. Reconstructive surgery may be a way to dramatically improve your mobility and eliminate your pain. 

What should I expect after reconstructive foot and ankle surgery?

The Precision Podiatry team knows that the recovery period after surgery is a major concern for most people. That’s why they work to minimize that. With expertise in arthroscopic and endoscopic surgery, they perform minimally invasive procedures. 

If you’re a candidate for a minimally invasive procedure, your surgeon makes extremely small incisions in your foot or ankle, then uses a long, thin instrument called an arthroscope or endoscope. This instrument has a small camera attached to the end, allowing your surgeon to perform your procedure through the tiny incision rather than creating a large opening in your foot or ankle. This slashes your postoperative pain and recovery time.
