Reconstructive Surgery Q & A

What is reconstruction surgery?

Reconstructive surgery is a procedure that aims to reverse damage in your body, giving you back a fuller range of motion while minimizing — or possibly even completely eliminating — any pain you’re experiencing.

And when it comes to problems with your feet and ankles, both preserving your range of motion and pain minimization are critical. Without this type of care, every step you take can range from uncomfortable to unbearable. This directly impedes your mobility, but it also prevents you from wanting to walk, hurting your cardiovascular health and your ability to participate in activities you enjoyed before.

To help restore your feet and/or ankles as well as your quality of life, the Foot Specialist Associates team offers reconstructive surgery.

What kind of reconstructive surgery is available?

The expert surgeons at Foot Specialists Associates are highly experienced in a wide range of surgical procedures. What’s more, they use the latest surgical techniques available today to ensure your surgery is as successful and as minimally invasive as possible.

Some of the procedures they offer include surgery for:

  • Ankle and hindfoot arthritis
  • Bunion correction
  • Hammertoe correction
  • Arch problems
  • Bone deformities
  • Congenital anomalies
  • Paralytic feet
  • Total ankle replacement

Whatever podiatric problem is ailing you, you can rest easy knowing the dedicated team at Foot Specialists Associates can tailor a surgical procedure to you. Their goal is always to help you enjoy the best results from your surgery with the least discomfort and downtime possible.

What should I expect from reconstructive surgery?

It depends on the procedure. Whenever possible, the Foot Specialist Associates team performs your procedure arthroscopically. Advanced arthroscopic surgery allows them to complete your surgery through a few small incisions, into which they feed the arthroscope — a long, thin instrument with a very small camera on the end.

This enables your surgeon to see the procedure site without the need for large incisions on your foot and ankle. This minimizes your postoperative discomfort and shortens your recovery time.

The team at Foot Specialists Associates lets you know what to expect from your specific procedure well in advance so you can prepare and rest easy heading into surgery.
