If you need foot or ankle surgery, we can help. Our podiatrists perform surgery to treat a variety of foot or ankle conditions. Surgery can correct problems with the feet or ankles and alleviate any pain and discomfort that might have been caused by a particular foot or ankle condition. The doctors at Reston Foot and Ankle Center are your foot and ankle surgery podiatrists in Reston, VA.


Conditions Treated with Surgery

If you are experiencing persistent pain and discomfort in the feet and ankles, or struggle with limited mobility, you might benefit from surgery. Certain medical conditions and injuries to the feet or ankles can limit mobility and cause chronic pain and discomfort. Foot and ankle surgery can correct problems with the feet or ankles, increase mobility, and reduce or eliminate chronic pain and discomfort. Your Reston, VA, podiatrist can determine if foot or ankle surgery would benefit you.

Foot or ankle surgery can be used to treat several different problems and conditions, including:

  • Arthritis of the ankle
  • Plantar fasciitis (heel pain)
  • Injuries to the achilles tendon
  • Adult-acquired flatfoot
  • Metatarsal problems
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Hammer toes
  • Bunions

 

Foot and Ankle Surgery

Some foot and ankle surgeries can be completed in about one hour with patients returning home the same day. More complicated surgeries can take several hours and patients might spend part of the recovery period in the hospital before returning home. Whether the surgery is a quick outpatient procedure or a more complicated inpatient one, complete recovery from any type of foot or ankle surgery takes time. Patients should stay off their feet as much as possible for several weeks following surgery in order to fully recover.
