Surgery can address a wide variety of foot problems, including:
•Sprains and fractures.
•Arthritis and joint disease.
•Benign and malignant tumors.
•Calluses and warts.
•Corns and hammertoes.
•Heel or toe spurs.
•Neuromas (nerve tumors).
Many surgeries today can be performed in the doctor's office or a surgical center on an outpatient basis. They frequently can be performed using local anesthesia, in some cases combined with sedation. Most feet surgeries require a period of immobilization after the procedures with protective devices, such as a bandages, splints, surgical shoes, casts, or open sandals. Limited weight bearing, elevating and icing the feet, and keeping the area dry are commonly required for the first two weeks following surgery until sutures are removed. Most surgeons will encourage post-operative exercise of the feet and legs to speed recovery. In addition, many patients need additional therapy or treatments after surgery in order to aid in the healing and recovery process. These may include physiotherapy, orthotic devices, and special footwear.
