Foot and ankle issues don’t always resolve on their own. In fact, you may eventually need foot or ankle surgery. These are just a few of the medical conditions affecting your feet and ankles, and the procedures to help you get relief.
If you have arthritis, it causes inflammation of your joints which can eventually lead to joint destruction. When your joints are compromised, you can lose mobility, proper function, and range of motion in your feet and ankles. Joint fusion or bone realignment surgeries are common treatments for arthritis in the feet and ankles.
If you have diabetes, it can lead to immune, nervous, and circulatory system problems, causing open ulcerative lesions or tissue death. Diabetics can benefit from ulcer treatment, or they may need amputations of toes or feet due to lack of blood flow.
If you experience an ankle or foot fracture, you can lose mobility and be in a severe amount of pain. Surgical treatment for a fracture involves reconstructing and realigning the bones in your foot or ankle.
Other common feet and ankle surgeries include:
- Repositioning a tendon if you have chronic Achilles tendon issues
- Removal of small or large bunions to help align your foot
- Realigning your toes to eliminate hammertoe formation
