At our practice, we always look for conservative means of alleviating foot and ankle problems.
However, there are circumstances when conservative treatment alone will not produce the desired outcomes and surgical intervention may be necessary.
Once surgical intervention has been determined to be a viable course of action, we work closely with our patients to keep them informed from the point of evaluation, pre-op, the surgical procedure itself and the post-operative course of care.
Minor procedures can be performed under local anesthesia in our office. More complex surgeries such as reconstructive foot surgeries are done in the hospital with mild sedation and local anesthesia.
It is always our objective to get our patients back to work quickly, back to the recreational activities they love and to restore the quality of life that they deserve.
