If you are suffering from pain or a deformity in your feet, ankles, or knees, we may suggest reconstructive surgical intervention from our orthopedic surgeons to help alleviate pain, reduce deformity, and restore function. At Desert Foot Surgeons, our podiatrists in Phoenix are able to treat wide variety of foot conditions, such as surgery for conditions such as hallux rigidus and bunions, as well as care and treatment for foot fractures.

Orthopedic surgeons are uniquely qualified to detect the early stages of diseases that exhibit warning signs in the lower extremities, as well as manage those foot conditions which can pose an ongoing threat to a patient’s overall health. Such illnesses include diabetes, arthritis, and cardiovascular disease. In some cases, our podiatrists in Phoenix may recommend surgery as the best approach to remedying your condition. Our doctor has treated numerous cases of fractured bones and our practice is open to you if you or a friend or loved one has suffered an injury. If you have a broken bone, however, time is of the essence. A great result is most likely when the fracture is treated early. So call as soon as possible and let our staff know there is a fracture so we can arrange for urgent or emergent consultation and care. Most surgeries are day surgeries and you will go home that same day, although you will need to arrange for a ride home. You will generally be given a local anesthetic and anesthesia per your anesthesiologist. After surgery you will possibly be given a long acting anesthetic and also receive pain medication. Proper healing and recovery after your reconstructive surgery is very important. Weight bearing on your foot and knee depends on your procedure. A head procedure allows for immediate weight bearing, but we still feel that it is best to use crutches for 1-2 weeks. Base procedures require crutches for a longer period of time. First week after surgery keep your foot elevated as much as possible. Keep your foot dry for at least 2 weeks after surgery. One week after surgery you will have your dressing change, and the following week your sutures will be removed.

Our podiatrists in Phoenix will advise you when you can increase weight bearing and activities depending on your surgical procedure. Best results are achieved when patients are compliant with after-surgery instructions. By combining the medical, mechanical, and surgical treatment of foot problems, our office is able to provide treatment and care for the most challenging of problems. Please call our office to discuss if foot surgery is the best option for you, and Desert Foot Surgeons get you back on your feet.
