Approximately nine out of ten people suffer from a troublesome foot problem at some point in their lives. Contrary to popular belief, the majority of foot problems do not resolve without medical intervention. Fortunately, for those people who suffer from painful feet, podiatrists can properly diagnose a foot problem, recommend and/or administer treatment. If conservative therapy is not successful for a particular problem, surgery may be performed.

There are basically three reasons for having foot surgery:

  • to eliminate pain
  • to improve foot function
  • to improve the appearance of your feet

We perform surgery in our office which is a much more pleasant atmosphere than the hospital. Overnight stays in hospitals are avoided as is prolonged pain and disability. Local anesthesia, considered the safest form of anesthetic, will be used to make your surgery painless. With very few exceptions, you can walk out of the office following the procedure.
