Sometimes conservative treatment just won’t solve your foot problems. Surgery can be your best option. Our office is staffed by a highly trained team of Surgeons, Anesthesiologists, Registered nurses, Assistants, and Medical office personnel. Our goal is to provide safe, efficient foot and ankle surgical care in a setting that is comfortable for you and your loved ones. All of the podiatrists at Foot & Ankle Surgical Associates are highly trained to treat all of your foot problems. A podiatry specialist can take care of most surgeries in his office as a day surgery and you can be up and back on your feet in no time.
There are many different reasons for podiatric surgery and many of them are much less scary than you might think. If you have flat feet, joint movement limitations, hammertoes, bunions, rheumatoid arthritis or gout these are a few of the reasons that a podiatrist may recommend surgery. The truth is the sooner you get any podiatric surgery done that is needed; the better chance you will have of correcting the problem, your pain will have significantly improved once surgery is complete.
Many people put off the surgery because they are either afraid or think themselves too busy to be laid up for the several days it may take to recover from the surgery. By postponing the treatment they subject themselves to more pain or make the condition worse, risking their mobility for more than just a few days. If you have pain more days than you do not, if you have a hard time moving around comfortably, or if you have tried other treatments that have failed it may be time to see a podiatrist.
At FASA, The podiatrist will evaluate your condition and make a decision on the correct treatment plan. Our podiatrists work very hard to learn all the latest techniques and non-invasive ways to take care of any foot problems you may have, so you can rest assure that they will only do surgery if it is necessary.
If you are having foot pain and need to see a podiatrist then give us a call. One of our four Podiatrists will assess your pain and diagnose your problem and try to find a nonsurgical approach if it is possible. Podiatry surgery will only be recommended if it is the only option or the best option to give you your mobility back.
