Hello. I’m Bronwyn Wilke. At Martin Foot and Ankle, we perform over 2,500 foot and ankle surgeries each year, from simple toenail procedures and bunions to arch reconstructions and ankle joint replacements. Using state of the art technology, we are able to minimize recovery time to get patients back to their lives and desired activities as soon as possible. Surgery should be considered for pain that is unrelieved by conservative care, regressive deformities, and injuries that result in tendon or ligament tears or broken bones. Many surgeries of the foot and ankle allow the patient to put weight on the foot that same day. Evaluating your X-ray and MRI results, analyzing the way you walk, and discussing your desired goals and activities with your surgeon is the best way to understand if surgery is the right option for you.
