If the foot or ankle is unstable, this can make daily activities difficult to perform. It can also increase your risk of injury. At the Foot & Ankle Institute, Dr. Asia Lo, Dr. Manish Patel, and Dr. Usman Sultan treat a variety of conditions in patients of all ages. When it comes to specific problems, like sprains and fractures, birth deformities, bunions, calluses, or more, you may want to consider foot and ankle surgery to correct discomfort as a result of these issues if conventional treatments fail. If you'd like to discuss our services further, schedule a consultation in our West Houston, TX office today.
When To Consider Foot and Ankle Surgery
If you suffer from any of the painful conditions mentioned above, as well as flat feet, hammertoes, heel, or toe spurs, and benign or malignant tumors, then it may be time to talk about treatment options. Comprehensive surgical care is also available for ruptured ligaments, joint disease, and neuromas.
What to Expect After Treatment
After our foot doctor performs surgery in our West Houston or Sugarland, TX office, you must avoid weight-bearing for as long as they recommend. Depending on the type of surgery you had, you'll get a set of post-operative instructions to follow that helps move the process along. It takes time for pain and swelling to go away, but our team of professionals will ensure that everything goes accordingly and that you are comfortable while healing. Post-surgery, you may also receive a walking-boot that assists with mobility.
When acute foot or ankle pain becomes chronic and not alleviated by at-home remedies, or if you'd benefit from a reconstructive procedure, it might be time to visit your local foot doctor to discuss surgery. At our West Houston or Sugarland, TX office, one of our many podiatrists will address any questions or concerns during the initial consultation.
