Foot and Ankle Surgery Q & A

What is foot and ankle surgery?

Foot and ankle surgery is a category of procedures that repair damage, correct abnormalities, and improve the function of any part of the feet or ankles. At NYC Footcare PC, the surgical team has 40-plus years of experience with foot and ankle surgery, ensuring that you get the very best in skilled care.

When might I need foot and ankle surgery?

If you have a foot or ankle condition that doesn’t improve with nonoperative treatments like physical therapy, bracing, and custom orthotics, you might need foot and ankle surgery. Some common reasons to need surgery include:

  • Fractures
  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Ligament tears and ruptures
  • Tendon tears and ruptures
  • Painful joints due to arthritis
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Severe flat feet

In cases where you’re in constant pain or experience other symptoms like stiffness and poor range of motion, surgery can relieve the symptoms and help you return to full use of your foot or ankle.

What can I expect during foot and ankle surgery?

The NYC Footcare PC surgeons perform foot and ankle surgery in their ambulatory surgery center in Fair Lawn, New Jersey. The state-of-the-art facility has the most advanced equipment, allowing the skilled team to use the newest techniques of minimally invasive surgery in a safe and clean environment. 

Most procedures at the ambulatory surgery center include local anesthesia and sedation, which is generally preferable to general anesthesia because of its lower risk level. The team can explain your specific needs before your scheduled surgery and help you prepare properly. 

Generally, foot and ankle procedures require a group of tiny incisions instead of one long incision. The team uses equipment such as arthroscopes with tiny cameras to visualize the inside of your foot or ankle without fully opening it up. 

Because you’ll have such small incisions, your risk of infection and other complications decreases significantly. In addition, minimally invasive foot and ankle surgery is less painful with a faster recovery. Many people can stand and walk with assistance in only a few days. 

With more than four decades of surgical experience, you can trust your foot or ankle surgery to the NYC Footcare PC team. Call the Fair Lawn surgery center or the office nearest you, or click the provided link to arrange your surgery consultation now.
