What questions should I ask about foot surgery?
If you have a foot, ankle, or heel problem and want or need to talk to a surgeon about it, then you might already have several questions in mind, but you may want to consider other questions too. For example, depending on your problem, you could ask whether arthroscopy is a possibility. This kind of surgery is minimally invasive with only local anesthesia, and is often the better option for a problem like minor joint damage.
If you need a more complex kind of surgery, like reconstructive surgery or a joint replacement, then you definitely should ask the surgeon questions like:
- Will I be completely under during the procedure?
- What do I need to do in preparation for my procedure?
- Can I expect significant pain and swelling after the procedure?
- Can I expect to be staying in the hospital for a long time afterwards?
- Will I need pain medication, special mobility equipment, and/or physical therapy?
- How long will full recovery take so I’ll be able to return to my everyday activities?
- What can you and my family do to help me during my recovery?
- Will I need another procedure in the future?
If you have other questions on your mind, don’t hesitate to reach out to us here at Bay Area Foot & Ankle Associates.
What additional services do foot surgeons offer?
Because foot surgeons are foot doctors too, they’re able to offer a number of other services in addition to surgical procedures. All of these services can be complementary for fully comprehensive care for your lower extremities. For example, here at our clinic, our foot doctors are able to offer:
- Biomechanical assessments
- X-rays for sports injuries and other injuries
- Sports medicine
- Certain injections like ones for relief from pain
- Custom foot orthotics
- And more
Some of the many conditions our foot surgeons can treat are achilles tendonitis, bunions, hammertoes, ingrown nails, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, ankle sprains, and others. Also, we’re able to offer various therapeutic and rehabilitative services too, like physical therapy.
