Common Types of Foot Surgery   General Discussion

Started Dec-29 by brantradford; 87 views.

Surgery is regarded as the best option for patients who have ankle and foot problems that aren't responding to conservative treatments and are making the basic movement of standing and walking the most difficult task. In spite of the long-term recovery the procedure can fix the structural problem and aid in regaining foot's function.

Foot surgery is a great way to reduce chronic pain, improve foot function, and stop future damage to feet.

Let's look at these popular foot procedures performed in the podiatrist's clinic and the best places to go to San Antonio, TX, for top-quality orthopedic treatment.

Bunions Foot Surgery

A bunion is a bony bump which occurs at the bottom of the big toe, causing the biggest toe's weight to be pulled toward the other toes. Bunions also cause joint of the big toe protrude. Shoes that aren't properly fitted for example, wearing high heels, is an important factor that causes bunions.

Bunion surgery is performed in a single operation or as a combination of following:

  • Removal of a portion of the toe's big bone in order to straighten it
  • Removal of swelling tissues in the area of the big toe of your foot.
  • The bones are permanently joined the joint that is affected.
  • Re-aligning the forefoot bones to their normal positions to correct the abnormal toe joint angle.

Achilles Tendon Repair

An Achilles tendon tear (thick tissue band that connects muscle groups in the calf to the heel) could require surgery to repair. The goal of the repair procedure is to bring the torn edges back to their original positions, and they won't be reconnected in a natural way without surgery.

Plantar Fasciitis Surgery

While regular stretching and exercise can help to heal the plantar fasciitis problem, there can be unlucky situations where surgery is the only option to correct the issue.

In the course of a plantar fasciitis procedure it is when the plantar fascia (the thick band of connective tissue connecting the heel bone with the foot) is removed of the bone of your heel. The surgery for plantar fasciitis is an open procedure or by an incision of a tiny size.

Reconstructive Surgery

Reconstructive foot surgery is a solution to foot issues or deformities that impact gait and balance. The procedure also corrects birth imperfections and treat many other foot issues.

Reconstructive surgeries are recommended for lesions and tumors, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis and for severe foot injuries.

Metatarsal Foot Surgery

Metatarsal bones comprise a set comprising five bones that are located between the tarsal bone and the phalanges on the toes. Arthritis of the small metatarsophalangeal joints causes the joint's lining to become inflamed, leading to discomfort and pain.
