Foot Surgery Q & A

When would I need foot surgery?

The podiatrists at Yavapai Foot and Ankle Center make every effort to treat your foot and ankle problems nonsurgically, but in some cases, foot surgery is necessary to correct a deformity, to alleviate severe pain, or to restore function and help you regain mobility. 

Additionally, if you have a sports injury that resulted in a fracture, surgery may be the best option for repair. Rest assured, the doctors take the most conservative approach to treatment before recommending surgery for most types of foot conditions.

What are common types of foot surgeries?

Some of the most common types of foot surgery the podiatrists at Yavapai Foot and Ankle Center perform include:

  • Repairing a foot fracture
  • Removing bunions
  • Correcting a hammertoe
  • Removing heel spurs
  • Plantar fascia release
  • Bone fusions for arthritic conditions
  • Repairing an ingrown toenail
  • Removing a benign neuroma
  • Repairing an injured Achilles tendon
  • Reconstructing foot or ankle deformities
  • Correcting a metatarsal joint

In many situations, your podiatrist performs foot surgery on an outpatient basis in the Yavapai Foot and Ankle Center’s state-of-the-art facility. 

What is the recovery like after foot surgery?

Your recovery after foot surgery is largely dependent on the extent of the procedure. If you are in good health, you may heal more efficiently than if you have chronic health conditions that inhibit your body’s ability to recover quickly. 

Your podiatrist at Yavapai Foot and Ankle Center explains your specific surgery and what you can expect afterward. Plus, the team is there to support you as you recover to ensure the best outcome.

Ultimately, the goal of foot surgery is to improve your foot or ankle condition so you have less pain and discomfort and the ability to fully participate in all of the activities you enjoy.
