Whether or not to have surgery could be a difficult decision to make. Unfortunately, some podiatric conditions require foot and ankle surgery as their cure. If you have a sports injury, bunions, fractures, or other issues that require surgery, we can help. At LePoer Podiatry, we offer comprehensive care for those struggling with podiatric issues. Get in touch with our Providence office to learn more.
The goal of foot surgery is to alleviate pain and restore proper mobility. This type of surgery can be beneficial if you struggle with the following issues:
- Ingrown nails
- Heel pain
- Foot arthritis
Ankle surgery may be necessary in the case of fractures if the bones in the ankle are unstable and need more support to heal. These kinds of surgeries may also be helpful for addressing:
- Bad joints
- Flat feet
- Ankle sprains
What Is the Procedure Like?
Dr. Bologna-Jill specializes in rearfoot and ankle surgery, offering acute care for fractures. She is board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.
The decision to have surgery is usually based on lifestyle choices and the information given by surgeons. If your skin is affected or your feet are quickly becoming deformed, it’s important to get an assessment for urgent surgery to avoid infection and alert your healthcare professionals. The procedure itself will depend on your specific condition. However, opting for surgery can provide long-term benefits such as:
- Pain relief
- Better leg/foot function and mobility
- A greater choice of footwear
