Foot & Ankle Q & A

What is foot and ankle surgery?

Foot and ankle surgery at the Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County is a medical procedure used to repair, remove, reconstruct, or replace tissues in your foot or ankle. The Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County team is highly trained and experienced. They use the most cutting-edge technologies and treatments to maximize results. 

What is foot and ankle surgery used for?

Your orthopedic specialist can resolve many foot and ankle issues using nonsurgical methods, such as physical therapy, bracing, home remedies, or injections, but sometimes surgery is the best way to fully restore lower extremity function. Your provider may suggest foot and ankle surgery if you have:

  • Painful bunion
  • Severe fracture
  • Severe sprain
  • Crippling arthritis
  • Torn cartilage
  • Muscle or tendon injuries
  • Tendon rupture
  • Achilles tendon issues
  • Painful plantar fasciitis 
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Crushing injuries
  • Infections
  • Nerve damage
  • Tumors
  • Other painful foot and ankle conditions

Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County offers foot and ankle reconstruction and numerous other surgeries to reduce pain and restore your quality of life. 

Is foot and ankle surgery right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for foot and ankle surgery, an Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County provider discusses your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle, and treatment preferences.

They examine your feet and ankles and may order blood testing, nerve testing, X-rays, or other imaging procedures to make a final diagnosis and create an effective treatment plan.

Avoid food and drink the morning of the procedure if asked to. 

What happens during foot and ankle surgery?

The Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County team numbs the treatment area and offers a sedative to help you relax or fall asleep during foot and ankle surgery. Your surgeon makes a tiny incision and removes, repairs, reconstructs, or replaces damaged tissues before closing the incision and taking you to a recovery area. 

What should I expect after the procedure?

Have a loved one drive you home after foot and ankle surgery and follow all post-care instructions. You might need a cast, brace, bandaging, boot, or crutches during healing. Ice the treatment area and elevate it as needed. Ease back into physical activity slowly, as directed by your specialist. 

Attend physical therapy sessions and follow-up visits and call the office any time with questions.
