What Happens During Foot or Ankle Reconstruction?
The details of your reconstructive surgery will depend on the severity of your condition. The goal of foot and ankle reconstruction is to reduce chronic pain, restore mobility and enhance the aesthetic appearance your foot and/or ankle.
Your surgery may involve repairing tendons, bone, joints, skin or tissue. Pins, screws, wires, or plates may be necessary and permanent to help the treatment area fully heal and recover.
After Your Surgery
Ultimately, your recovery time will depend on the type of condition being treated. Feet and ankles tend to take a while to heal, so you will likely need to take some time off work and rest with your feet elevated. The good news is that once you have healed, you will feel better than you did before surgery. To make a full recovery, you may need to undergo physical therapy and temporary immobilization with a cast or brace. We will be able to provide you with additional details on your recovery following a clinical evaluation.
