In general foot surgery should be the last option in any foot related condition. However there comes a time that conservative treatment fails and one should think about this option. Our office is in the forefront of new technologies and advancements in medicine and surgery. We pride ourselves for being able to have patients return to their regular activities as soon as possible. recently there has been a lot of buzz about “cosmetic foot surgery”. Although we strongly condemn surgical procedures on healthy feet for the reason of wearing smaller or narrower shoes, we believe all “non-cosmetic” surgeries should have a cosmetic result. The art of balancing function with appearance is important and we strive to perform this task on every procedure.
Most of our foot surgeries are performed in outpatient settings and rarely require hospitalization. With advances in medicine there is less need for casts and most patients are able to walk right after surgery.
