Hearing the words, “You need surgery on your feet,” will likely evoke this response, “Is it really necessary?” The recommendation of surgical intervention for a bunion, neuroma, or hammertoes may seem extremely frightening to many people. Thoughts of missed work, limited activity, and improper healing may feel completely overwhelming. However, at Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists we believe that these words can mean freedom from pain and a return to a full life. We are the Austin experts in forefoot surgery, and we’re here to walk you through the process of diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.
We will completely answer any questions you have about the necessity of surgery. Patient education is highly valued in our practice, and we will ensure that the procedure has been thoroughly explained. Not only that, you can rest assured that surgery is only recommended when conservative measures have failed to resolve your foot and ankle pain.
Unfortunately, there are instances that call for invasive measures. A bunion that has become so painful that your mobility is limited, or a neuroma that is causing constant discomfort are just two examples. Don’t let fear keep you from enjoying each day. You deserve a healthy foundation, and we’re here to help you regain a pain-free life.
Experience you can trust, excellence in podiatry, and state-of-the-art facilities are just a few reasons that people choose Dr. Craig H. Thomajan DPM, FACFAS and Dr. Shine John DPM, FACFAS for their foot surgery needs. Call today to schedule an evaluation. Dial (512) 328-8900, or schedule an appointment online.
