What if Surgery is needed?
Most foot and ankle problems can be successfully treated by conservative methods. If surgery is indicated, there are several options available.
Many surgical procedures can be performed under local anesthesia in our fully licensed, Medicare approved, JCAHO accredited, outpatient surgical center, thus avoiding unnecessary hospital costs. Selected foot problems can be treated with laser surgery, providing a quicker recovery period, decreased postoperative discomfort and little or no time off from work or school.
If hospitalization is necessary, surgery can be performed at one of three local community hospitals at which we have full admitting privileges. Depending on the health of the patient, the procedure can be done on an inpatient or outpatient basis at these hospitals.
No two foot problems are alike; each problem must be assessed on an individual basis and treated accordingly. Our objective is to help you continue your day-to-day activities with minimal discomfort and inconvenience.
