FAQs on Foot and Ankle Reconstruction:

Why might I need foot or ankle reconstruction surgery?

If the structure of your foot or ankle has been compromised due to an injury of the side-effects of an illness, reconstructive surgery is a necessary step to restoring its natural functionality, and sometimes even its appearance. Some of the most common reasons our podiatrists may recommend reconstructive surgery include:

  • Extreme structural differences that cause chronic pain (severely high arches or flat feet)
  • Fractures which may have healed inappropriately
  • Severe sports injuries such as Achilles tendon tears or ankle ligament injuries
  • Heel and bone spurs
  • Severe deformities as a result of arthritis, infections or tumors
  • Deformities as a result of metabolic disease, like diabetes
  • Severe bunions and hammertoes

What is the standard recovery time for foot and ankle surgery?

While each individual has a different journey to recovery, we understand the urgency our patients may feel to return to work and other daily activities after surgery. Your foot and ankle surgeon will develop a custom surgical plan including the time off needed to properly heal foot and ankle surgery and any lifestyle changes in order to produce a desirable outcome.

Our foot and ankle surgeons are constantly learning new, innovative techniques to improve recovery, pain, and post-operative outcomes in order to return each individual to normal daily function as quickly as possible.

Will I need physical therapy?

Physical therapy is an essential next step for patients who undergo foot and ankle surgery. After a period of rest, physical therapy helps restore strength and movement to the area of your injury. This promotes proper healing, helps manage pain post-treatment, and serves to prevent a loss of mobility or permanent damage that can result in chronic pain.
