Although surgery is usually the last resort when it comes to any type of ailment or injury, sometimes it is indeed the best choice. Debilitating foot problems especially benefit from surgical treatments, as they can quickly relieve pain and discomfort that would otherwise affect your entire body.
Your feet are basically the support system that your body relies on for stability and movement. When that stability is threatened as a result of an illness, infection, or injury, your entire body will begin to feel the effects. Flat feet can cause lower back and leg pain, plantar fasciitis can damage your knees and hips, and overall pain can cause depression and anxiety (just to mention a few common conditions). In some cases, abnormalities or injuries can even cause deformities in the foot, causing it to lose proper function. In these situations, surgery can be the best option not only to find relief but to permanently fix the underlying condition.
Surgical Relief: Resolving Your Condition with the Proper Procedure
When it comes to foot ailments, every case is unique and requires a thorough diagnosis in order to assess if surgery is needed. Being told that you may have to undergo a surgical procedure may sound scary at first. However, after 44 years of treating painful conditions, 13 of which have been dedicated to mastering all types of surgical procedures, we’ve learned that relief far outweighs fear. We’ve also learned that with the proper procedure, we can help you kick your pain, discomfort, and embarrassment to the curb.

One of the scariest things about surgery is the uncertainty. Will everything be okay? Will it work? What happens if there’s a problem? Does the surgeon know what he’s doing?
