The reconstructive procedure performed usually depends on the severity of the ailment, but can bring back range of motion and stability to the foot, as well as reduce pain and trauma and restore proper aesthetic appearance. Surgery may involve tendons, bone, joint, skin repair or tissue. Screws, pins, wires or plates may be used to help the area heal and deliver a full recovery, and may be permanent.
Reconstructive surgery will probably be performed on an outpatient basis. Overall recovery time depends on the type of ailment being treated, and may also require physical therapy and immobilization with a cast or brace.
Our podiatrists (foot and ankle surgeons) are board certified and specially trained in performing a variety of reconstructive procedures to restore your foot or ankle back to its original state and allow for full range of motion and functionality.
