Reconstructive surgery for the foot and ankle is a specialized medical discipline that focuses on surgically restoring the integrity of the musculoskeletal system, encompassing bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, as well as associated arteries and nerves. These procedures aim to alleviate pain by reconstructing the foot or ankle, thereby restoring normal walking and movement patterns.

Many enduring foot and ankle issues necessitate reconstructive surgery for long-term relief. Causes for these types of surgery may include congenital deformities, prior trauma, severe arthritis, prior surgical complications or any other problem leading to poor alignment or pain in the foot and ankle. These surgeries can be intricate, involving procedures like tendon transfers, bone fusion, joint replacement, bone grafting, and soft tissue repair. Internal fixation devices such as screws, plates, wires, staples, or pins may be required to stabilize the foot’s structure.

Selecting a surgeon who is board-certified in foot and ankle reconstructive surgery to conduct a comprehensive assessment will provide you with the best opportunity to devise a clear surgical strategy and achieve optimal recovery.
