Reconstructive Foot Surgery can have many benefits. It can sound daunting and is a major surgical procedure; however, foot deformities that produce pain can cause untold complications and require this invasive procedure. These deformities are usually produced by high arches, arthritis or suffering trauma on your feet. Foot reconstruction can bring back lost motion and vigor by repairing tendons, joints and bones. To provide additional steadiness, this procedure will use artificial parts to make sure your foot stays in the correct position. This surgery is not as scary as it can appear and it can provide many benefits.
Treatment for this condition includes:
- Reconstruction of your foot can restore the foot so that the bones destroyed by infection can be replaced with implants. The deformity that shaped your condition can be diminished with this surgery by utilizing screws, pins and plates to steady the foot. If there is an infection in your foot, implants may be covered with antibiotics and will be used to alleviate pain from the infected bones. Muscles and tendons may be elongated or transferred to match foot and ankle motion.
- Significant pain can be relieved with reconstruction surgery. The type of surgery is determined by age, the type of injury and the level of symptoms. The heel bone can be set in a way where it can be better used for mobility and can be better positioned to support the arch.
