Does the idea of having surgery frighten you? Many people fear “going under the knife” even when they know it’s important to their overall health. We understand how scary the idea of surgery can be, which is why we take great care in only prescribing it when necessary and keeping you as comfortable as possible throughout the process.

Your Health and Comfort Are Our Priority

Do you need foot or ankle surgery?Our experienced foot and ankle surgeons know how important it is for your surgery to go well. That’s why we offer the most advanced surgical care available today.

Our surgeons perform both inpatient and outpatient procedures. Some of the most common foot and ankle surgeries we offer include treatment for the following foot problems:

Each of these surgeries are done in one of our offices or at a local hospital. In some cases, local anesthesia is used to make your experience more comfortable. Other times, sedation is necessary to put you at ease.

Post-Surgery Tips

Before your surgery, your podiatrist will give you a set of instructions for post-surgery care. Most surgeries require immobilization for a certain period of time to allow your foot and ankle to heal properly. Your surgeon might give you protective devices for your foot too. These types of devices include:

  • Splints

  • Bandages

  • A cast

  • Surgical shoes

Avoid putting weight on the foot that was operated on until your podiatrist says that you can. You will want to elevate and ice your foot, as well as keep your foot free of excess moisture for the first few weeks after your surgery.

After your foot has had a few weeks to heal, your podiatrist will probably recommend physical therapy from one of our in-house podiatrists at Martin Physical Therapy. This is one of the top-referred physical therapy centers for foot and ankle injuries in York County. The treatment will help speed your recovery and get you back to normal as fast as possible.
