Foot Surgery

Elective and Reconstructive Foot Surgery

There are many reconstructive and elective foot surgery procedures to treat a variety of foot-related conditions. Foot pain is often caused by improper foot function. Improperly fitted shoes can worsen, and in some cases, cause foot problems. Shoes that fit properly and give good arch support can prevent irritation to the foot joints and skin. There are many types of foot problems that affect the heels, toes, nerves, tendons, ligaments and joints of the foot. Surgery is typically recommended by a physician only after more conservative treatment options have failed to alleviate pain or correct the problem.
