Which Problems Can Foot Surgery Solve?

At Camden County Foot and Ankle Associates, we have some of the most dedicated podiatric surgeons near Cherry Hill, NJ. Podiatric surgeons typically perform surgeries on the foot, ankle, or lower leg.

Which Problems Can Foot Surgery Solve?

Most foot or ankle issues have a corresponding surgical procedure that can alleviate pain. Surgical procedures for the foot or ankle may address problems such as:

  • Benign and malignant tumors
  • Birth deformities
  • Bunions
  • Calluses
  • Corns
  • Flat feet
  • Fractures and sprains
  • Hammertoes
  • Joint diseases such as arthritis
  • Neuromas
  • Tendon injuries

  • Warts

The majority of foot surgeries can be performed as outpatient procedures, meaning that you do not have to stay overnight. All it takes is a simple trip to your doctor's office or a local surgical center.

What Is the Recovery Process Like?

Most foot surgeries require some form of anesthetic. In order for you to heal properly, surgery often requires a resting period that may involve:

  • Bearing limited weight on the foot or ankle
  • Icing the foot
  • Taking pain medication as prescribed
  • Keeping the area free of moisture

Splints, bandages, and casts are all common tools used to protect your foot or ankle after the surgery. Wear these surgical items as directed by your podiatric surgeon.

Be sure to ask your podiatrist whether you require additional therapy or specific exercises before going home. If you feel that you could benefit from foot surgery near Haddonfield, NJ, contact us at (856) 546-8989 to schedule an appointment.
