Chronic foot and ankle pain caused by foot deformities, arthritis and tendinitis can become debilitating despite all conservative efforts. When conservative measures fail, surgical correction to remove arthritic joints, straighten crooked bones, and repair tendons and ligaments may be required. Reconstructive surgeries are carefully planned and executed to provide long term relief of these painful conditions. Recovery can take anywhere from 6-12 weeks depending on the procedures performed with physical therapy often needed to complete rehabilitation to normal activities and shoe gear.
