It depends on the procedure that is preformed. Most orthopedic foot and ankle procedures are performed on bones that are misshaped or misaligned. Orthotics are used control the instability of the foot as a whole complex, this includes the bones and the soft tissues. Orthotics after most surgeries are recommended initially to help control the foot and ankle to allow proper rehabilitation. The discontinuation of orthotics is determined for each individual patient.
