What is reconstructive foot surgery?
“Reconstructive surgery” is a term you may have heard from time to time. This can mean very different things depending on what we are “reconstructing” and why. Reconstructive surgery can correct a condition you were born with like clubfoot or cleft palate. Or, it can correct something that developed due to an injury or chronic condition. Examples of this are arthritis or a deformity caused by injury, neurological condition, etc. These conditions can range in severity from “mild but annoying” to “severe and debilitating” and everywhere in between.
When treating patients with these issues, our goal is get maximum improvement without the patient needing surgery. But, when pain and function are limited and it’s affecting the patient’s quality of life, it may be time to consider reconstruction.
