Fall is a time for apple picking, pumpkin carving, and leaves changing, but did you know it’s also a great time for foot surgery? Sure, that might seem like an odd thing to add to the list, but seriously, think about it: your summer trips are over, kids are back at school, socks have made their way back into your wardrobe, and if you schedule your foot surgery now, more than likely you’ll be ready to hit the malls and enjoy festivities by the holidays!
Now, obviously, your recovery time depends on the procedure you have, among other factors, but whether you’re correcting a bunion or hammertoe, want to put an end to nerve pain, or you have a bone spur that’s bothering you, foot surgery in the fall can relieve your symptoms and allow you the time to rest and recover you might not normally have during an active summer or holiday season.
Besides, if you’ve tried all other conservative treatment options to no avail, and you are having to give up activities and hobbies you love, it’s time for foot surgery anyway! Find out more about the surgical procedures we perform and what you can expect before, during, and after surgery. We will be happy to answer any questions you have and help you determine if surgery is the best choice for you -- and if this is the best time to do it!
