This can include a variety of surgeries, such as fusions (which treat arthritic problems in the feet) or tendon surgery (to correct an injury in the tendon, such as a rupture) and more. If a person injures their foot or ankle, these surgeries may be used to help treat and correct the problem.
Nerve pain in the foot or ankle can disrupt mobility and make getting through the day nearly impossible. This type of pain can be excruciating, but triple nerve release surgeries can fix it. Podiatrists frequently perform these types of surgeries to treat trigeminal nerve pain and give patients back a pain-free lifestyle.
Bunions are fairly common foot problems. They involve painful swelling that develops on the joint of the big toe and can make walking and wearing shoes difficult. Depending on the size and location of the problem, bunion surgery can vary in invasiveness and recovery needed.
Feet deformities that prevent proper walking or standing can be debilitating for the person living with them. Club foot repair surgeries help to correct the deformity and make it possible to use the foot in a normal, pain-free way.
This procedure is used to treat plantar fasciitis (a stabbing pain felt in the bottom of the foot) and heel spur syndrome (small growths on the back or bottom of the heel of the foot.) The surgery is designed to release the plantar fascia, which can cause the pain felt from both conditions.
When a person has a flat foot, the arches in their feet are not very pronounced. This can lead to pain, especially when walking or standing. Flat feet can be corrected through surgery by repairing ligaments and tendons that have weakened to allow for the flat arches.
