How your podiatrists in Marietta, GA, can help your feet and ankles

Your feet and ankles perform many important jobs including supporting your weight, keeping you standing upright, walking, running, and many other tasks of everyday life. Your feet and ankles also need a little TLC from time to time, which may include having surgery due to a medical issue, injury, or accident. Drs. Trevor R. Beach and I. Cristina Verlezza at Premier Podiatry in Marietta, GA, offer a full range of podiatry services to help you and your feet.

So, how do you know if you may need foot and ankle surgery? There are some definite causes which produce identifiable signs and symptoms that it's necessary, including:

  • Arthritis, which produces joint destruction leading to a loss of mobility and proper function; typically, arthritis produces pain, making it difficult to move. Common surgeries for arthritis include joint fusion or bone realignment.
  • Diabetes, which impairs blood flow and nerve function; diabetes can lead to injuries which don’t heal and lead to vast tissue death. Common surgeries for diabetes-related issues include ulcer treatment or amputations due to lack of adequate blood flow.
  • Plantar Fasciitis, which causes heel pain and loss of mobility; a common surgery for chronic plantar fasciitis is releasing the affected tendon to eliminate pressure and pain.
  • An ankle fracture, which causes increased pain with activity or when you put weight on your ankle; surgery can be done to reconstruct and realign your ankle.

You may also need foot surgery to treat toe problems including large bunions, hammertoes, and other issues.

Foot and ankle surgery can help you and your feet feel better. There are many benefits to having foot and ankle surgery, including:

  • Permanent pain relief
  • Increased mobility without pain
  • Increased stability in your feet and ankles
  • An easier, more comfortable time wearing shoes
