Unlike some other doctors, we’re not big on rushing people into surgery. We pride ourselves on being able to treat most foot conditions non-surgically.
If we believe your symptoms can be resolved through conservative means, then we’ll do everything we can to explore those options. We even offer MLS laser therapy and other advanced treatments that are often an effective alternative to surgery
However, sometimes surgery is either unavoidable, or simply the best available option to restore the highest level of functioning to your feet and ankles. If there’s a structural problem with the bones or joints, surgery may be the only way forward.
Fortunately, while we consider surgery a last resort as a treatment option, we also work hard to stay current with the latest and procedures. If it must be done, our goal is to do it right.
Example of reconstructive surgery include
- Bunion Surgery
- Hammertoe Surgery
- Diabetic foot (Charcot foot) Reconstruction
- Flatfoot Reconstruction
- Stabilization Surgery for chronis ankle instability
- Revision Surgery for conditions that have recurred despite previous treatment or surgery
- Total joint replacement surgery
How Do I Know if Surgery Is Right for Me?
Again, we're not big on rushing people into surgery. Any elective procedure must be something that both the doctor and the patient feel comfortble with and ready for. That said, the following factors may indicate that a surgical procedure is warranted or recommended:
- Your foot condition is regularly interfering with your day-to-day lifestyle, either due to constant pain, mobility reduction, or both.
- You have tried conservative treatments and alternatives to surgery with no success.
