What questions should I ask my foot and ankle surgeon?

If you have a problem with your lower extremities, meaning your feet, ankles, or heels, and if you want or need to have it treated, then you’ll want to ask a surgeon some questions about how to proceed. For example, if your problem is something like minor joint damage, then you may want to ask whether arthroscopy is a possibility. This kind of surgery is only minimally invasive using just local anesthesia.

If it turns out that you require a more complex kind of surgery like a joint replacement or a reconstruction, then you should definitely ask the surgeon questions like:

  • Will I be under general anesthesia during my procedure?
  • Should I have another procedure done after this one?
  • How should I prepare for my procedure?
  • Can I expect significant swelling and pain afterwards?
  • Can I expect I’ll be staying in the hospital for a while afterwards?
  • Will I require medication, mobility equipment, and/or physical therapy during my recovery?
  • What can you and my family do to help during my recovery?
  • How long could my recovery take?

What other services does a foot and ankle surgery clinic offer?

In addition to surgical procedures, a clinic like ours is able to offer a number of other services for fully comprehensive care for your lower extremities. Some of these other services include:

  • Custom foot orthotics
