Flat Foot Surgery

Flat feet can cause pain, arthritis and tendon degeneration and is something that should be treated from an early age. If your flat foot pain is affecting your quality of life on a daily basis your New York foot doctor may recommend flat foot surgery. The goal of flat foot surgery is to create an arch in the foot and realign your center of gravity to a functionally optimal position. This type of surgery has a long recovery period thus conservative care should always be attempted first. Flat foot surgery is considered a reconstructive surgery and is quite customized to each foot depending on the individual patients bone structure and tendon health. All symptoms, potential procedural/surgical options should always be discussed with your podiatrist after a thorough consultation and examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

How to Tell if You Need Surgery

If you have flat feet, you may have felt symptoms of foot and ankle pain even when participating in normal daily activities. You may have had difficulty walking or running and notice unusual patterns of wear on your shoes. If you have used orthotics or bracing with little success and if you are unable to stand on your toes without pain then surgical treatment by your New York City foot doctor may be recommended.Non-surgical treatments you may try prior to surgery include:

- Immobilization

- Rest

- Braces

- Shoe inserts

- Physical therapy

A good podiatrist in NYC will perform a thorough examination of your foot. The surgical evaluation usually will include a thorough medical history and x-rays. An MRI may be utilized if tendon involvement is suspected.
