Foot Care in Tempe

Many foot problems do not respond to “conservative” management. Your podiatrist can determine when surgical intervention may be helpful. Often when pain or deformity persists, surgery may be appropriate to alleviate discomfort or to restore the function of your foot. At Desert Foot Surgeons, our podiatrists are able to perform foot surgery and foot care in Tempe for a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions, such as structural conditions, trauma-related injuries, skin and nail conditions, congenital deformities, as well as reconstructive rear foot surgery.

If you are suffering from pain or a deformity in your ankle or heels, and conservative foot care methods in Tempe (such as wearing different kinds of shoes, medications, or orthotic devices) have failed to alleviate the discomfort, we may suggest reconstructive surgical intervention to help alleviate pain, reduce deformity, and restore function. Reconstructive surgery of the foot and ankle consists of complex surgical repair(s) that may be necessary to regain function or stability, reduce pain, and/or prevent further deformity or disease. Unfortunately, there are many conditions or diseases that range from trauma to congenital defects that necessitate surgery of the foot and/or ankle. Reconstructive surgery in many of these cases may require any of the following: tendon repair/transfer, fusion of bone, joint implantation, bone grafting, skin or soft tissue repair, tumor excision, amputation, and/or the osteotomy of bone (cutting of bones in a precise fashion). Bone screws, pins, wires, staples, and other fixation devices (both internal and external), and casts may be utilized to stabilize and repair bone in reconstructive procedures.

If surgery is required, our foot care specialist will discuss your surgical options as well as what is involved for a successful and comfortable post-operative experience. Almost all foot surgery is performed on an out-patient basis. If you are interested in reconstructive rear foot surgery, or would like to research your options for foot care in Tempe, please contact the office of Desert Foot Surgeons to make an appointment with our foot doctor today.
