While many foot elements can be treated non-surgically, our doctors are able to expertly perform foot surgery when needed. However, our doctors will always want to explore non-surgical treatments, before they recommend foot surgery. Foot surgery can be needed for many different reasons. Some of the most common reasons a patient may need foot surgery are: for treatment of a painful bunion; for treatment of a rigid hammertoe; the treatment of a neuroma; to relieve pain in the ball of the foot; and to relieve arthritis pain of the foot and ankle. Oftentimes, if a patient seeks out early treatment, they may be able to avoid needing foot surgery. For example, if you have a bunion, our Riverdale foot doctor will be able to provide you with treatment which hopefully will keep you from needing bunion surgery, since the treatment will be able to keep the bunion from being painful or getting larger. Similarly, if a flexible hammertoe is treated early on with non-surgical treatment, it can often be kept from developing into a rigid hammertoe. A rigid hammertoe will almost always need surgical treatment to be corrected. Should you need surgical treatment, it is good to know that our podiatrists are expert foot surgeons and are known to always provide exemplary care for our patients.
