Recovery after Foot Surgery: Nothing to Fear

Fall in Austin, TX means plenty of family activities to keep you on your toes.  If you’re looking for a Halloween event that’s kid friendly (more fun, less scare)—check out Boo at the Zoo hosted by the Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary.  This annual fundraiser includes a haunted house and train ride, and is sure to be enjoyed by young and old alike.  Remember to keep your feet feeling great by wearing comfortable, supportive footwear during your visit.  If you dread putting on your shoes in the morning due to a forefoot condition, help is available!


Fear holds many people hostage to daily pain, but recovery from foot surgery doesn’t have to be a scary proposition.  If you have a bunion, hammertoe, neuroma, or other condition that affects the front of the foot, Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists are here to help.  Our expert staff will answer your questions and calm your nerves with an accurate diagnosis and custom treatment plan.


Your after-care will vary depending upon the type and severity of your forefoot condition and the procedure that is used to address it.  Rest assured that Drs. Thomajan and John will thoroughly explain your post-operative instructions.  Immediately after surgery, your foot will likely be immobilized and dressed with bandages to decrease the likelihood of infection.  You will receive instructions concerning elevation, icing, cleansing, medications, and maintenance of the dressing.  Follow-up will often include physical therapy and close monitoring by our team to ensure that you regain full mobility in the shortest time possible. 


Don’t be scared into a life of foot pain—call our office today to get back on your feet and feeling great!  Dial (512) 328-8900, or schedule an appointment online.
