Foot and Ankle Surgery
Top Foot and Ankle Surgeons Providing You with Options and Thorough Care
While our goal is to keep you out of the operating room, sometimes foot and ankle problems do not respond to conservative treatments.
Our doctors are experts in the surgical treatment of all foot and ankle conditions and routinely perform many state of the art procedures including various types of reconstructive foot surgery and ankle arthroscopy. Our doctors perform out-patient surgeries at the Surgicenter of Johnson County, St. Joseph Medical Center and St. Luke’s South Hospital.
The length and method of postoperative care that is needed is determined by the type of surgery performed. Most foot and ankle surgeries can be performed on an outpatient basis in a comfortable ambulatory surgery center. More often than not, you will be able to walk right away in a special surgical shoe or boot. All postoperative care includes some degree of rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Other elements can include bandages, splints, surgical shoes, casts, crutches, and canes. Recovery can be shortened by carefully following your podiatrist’s instructions.
