So, how do you know if foot and ankle surgery are right for you? There are medical conditions and diseases which can dramatically affect your feet and ankles. These are just a few reasons why you might need foot and ankle surgery:
If you have arthritis in your ankles, feet, or toes; arthritis causes joint destruction, which can lead to loss of mobility and flexibility. Foot and ankle surgery can help you stand and support your weight, and walk around without pain. Bone realignment and joint fusion are two common types of surgery for arthritis.
If you have diabetes; your feet and toes may experience loss of blood flow, which can lead to tissue death. Nerve impairment can also cause you to injure your feet or ankles and not feel the injury. Ulcer treatment or amputations are two diabetes-related ankle and foot surgeries.
If you have plantar fasciitis; the plantar fascia is the thick band of tissue running across your heel. When the plantar fascia becomes inflamed, it can lead to intense pain. Surgery to release the affected tendon may be recommended to eliminate painful symptoms.
If you have an ankle or foot fracture; fractures can prevent you from walking or putting weight on the injured area. Surgery is often recommended to repair and realign bones that are damaged from an injury or accident.
