Foot Reconstruction Q & A

What is reconstructive foot surgery?

 

Reconstructive foot surgery is a highly technical and personalized procedure that’s designed to restore bone, skin, and connective tissue functions. Modern reconstructive foot surgeries can involve:

  • Realigning joints
  • Cosmetic rehabilitation
  • Grafting connective tissues
  • Removing damaged tissues
  • Replacing joints either fully or partially
  • Placing pins, plates, or rods into bones

Just as no two patients are alike, no two reconstructive foot surgeries are the same. Your Premier Foot & Ankle surgeon tailors a specific procedure to your unique anatomy and specific diagnosis.

Why do I need reconstructive foot surgery?

The leading podiatrists at Premier Foot & Ankle perform minor to complex reconstructive foot surgery for a variety of reasons for children, adults, and seniors. For example, you may need reconstructive foot surgery for any of the following conditions.

  • Clubfoot
  • Heel spurs
  • Foot tumors
  • Birth defects
  • Bone fractures
  • Sports injuries
  • Vascular problems
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Arthritic deterioration
  • Bunions or hammertoes
  • Tendon or ligament ruptures
  • Flat feet reconstruction (adult or pediatric)

The podiatric surgeons at Premier Foot & Ankle specialize in modern surgical techniques, including minimally invasive and arthroscopic measures, so you can experience a reduced recovery period in most cases.

How long is the recovery after reconstructive foot surgery?

Your recovery period after reconstructive foot surgery depends on the extent of your specific procedure. Usually, the podiatrists at Premier Foot & Ankle want you to avoid bearing weight on the treated foot for at least a week or two. You’re likely going to be in a boot or brace during this time to immobilize your foot and promote healing.

It can take anywhere from four to eight weeks to have a full recovery after reconstructive foot surgery. During this time, your podiatrist may have you participating in regular physical therapy sessions to build up strength and restore foot and ankle functions.

If you’re an athlete, you can expect comprehensive sports medicine care at Premier Foot & Ankle. The highly skilled foot and ankle surgeons are experienced in sports injury treatments and can help you gradually get back into training throughout your reconstructive foot surgery recovery period.
