Considering Foot Surgeries?

At Orthopedic Associates of Long Island, patients in the community can seek diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of bone and muscle concerns. Our doctors are here to help with improving function and range of motion, treating mild foot and ankle concerns, and providing surgical intervention when needed. Most foot and ankle surgeries are considered the last step, as conservative treatment methods can often improve one’s condition. This last resort is often used when patients are unable to reduce pain or increase their range of motion with therapy.

What surgeries are performed on the foot and ankle?

Some of the more common foot surgeries include procedures for:

  • Sprained ankles
  • Ankle tendonitis
  • Ankle and foot deformities
  • Cavus foot
  • Flat foot
  • Haglund’s syndrome
  • Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction

When should I consider surgery?

Most of the above conditions can be improved with traditional therapies such as medication management and physical therapy. However, there are situations in which the doctor may recommend surgical intervention, especially if these more conservative methods do not address the situation.

Comprehensive care with an orthopedic professional

Our team of professionals across our seven convenient locations can assess a patient’s specific needs during an initial consultation visit. The doctor will evaluate the patient and take a series of x-rays to provide a proper diagnosis. Then, treatment options are discussed. With physical therapy or medication, many patients can restore the function of their foot and ankle, though severe cases may still benefit from surgical intervention.

Our practice offers a wide range of orthopedic solutions for patients in the areas of West Babylon, Wading River, Commack, Riverhead, Patchogue, Southampton, and Setauket. We accept new and existing patients into our facility to help them feel and function at their best, regardless of what conditions they face.

Request a visit with our doctors today

We encourage patients in the community to speak with the team at Orthopedic Associates of Long Island by calling (631) 689-6698. In most situations, patients can benefit from more conservative options for the feet and ankle before considering invasive surgeries. Our team can evaluate you to decide if you could benefit from surgical treatment now or in the future.
