Foot Sugery

Do You Need Foot Surgery?

Do you need foot surgery? Do you want the most qualified podiatric surgeon in the Cary, NC, area? Then, consult with board-certified foot and ankle surgeon, Dr. Jeremy Thomas. For both in-office and in-hospital procedures, the professional team at Triangle Foot and Ankle Specialists will give you the care you need.

When foot and ankle surgery becomes necessary

Your podiatrist in Cary, NC, exhausts all avenues of treatment before recommending surgery. Rest, orthotics, physical therapy, medications, lifestyle and foot wear modifications and more are common interventions that help a number of patients with a variety of lower extremity issues.

However, when acquired or congenital deformity persist, or when foot and ankle discomfort and dysfunction do not improve within an acceptable range, Dr. Thomas may recommend surgery. When this happens, he carefully examines medical history and medications and may do additional testing (lab work and blood flow studies, as examples) and imaging (X-rays, MRIs, CT scans) to ensure proper treatment planning.

Additionally, Dr. Thomas and his team carefully prepare patients for the day of surgery. They educate them on after care, including medications for pain, bandaging, weight-bearing, mobility, casting and other elements critical to a complete recovery.

Types of foot surgery

The foot is a very complex structure, having 26 individual bones connected by ligaments and tendons which provide strength and range of motion. The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) says that most people take about 10,000 steps in a day, exerting tremendous pressures on the lower extremities. To restore them to full form, function and comfort, podiatry surgeries may include:

  • Repair of lacerations
  • Ingrown toenail removal
  • Biopsy
  • Foot and ankle reconstruction
  • Diabetic wound debridement
  • Removal of neuromas (benign tumors)
  • Correction of hammertoes and bunions
  • Heel spur removal
  • Plantar fascia release
  • Ankle stabilization (fixation)

Don't put it off

Foot and ankle problems don't resolve by themselves. They take expert care, and sometimes, surgery is part of that care. 

If you have a podiatric concern, please contact the dedicated team at Triangle Foot and Ankle Specialist in Cary, NC.
