Foot & Ankle Surgery
At Texas Foot & Ankle Center, we strongly believe that surgery should always be considered a last resort. If we can keep you off the operating table while adequately addressing your symptoms, that will always be our priority.
However, sometimes conservative treatments just aren’t cutting it, and a more aggressive approach is needed. If you find yourself in that situation, you want to make sure you’ve got foot and ankle surgeons you can trust on your side, helping you through the process.
You can find them here at Texas Foot & Ankle Center.
When Is Foot or Ankle Surgery Necessary?
The first step is figuring out whether surgery is even necessary, or whether you have non-surgical options (such as custom orthotics) that could bring you the comfort and full return to activity that you require.
In general, surgery is considered in cases where:
- All non-surgical treatment options that could realistically achieve the desired results have been attempted, without providing satisfactory results.
- The pain and/or impaired mobility you are experiencing from your condition is significantly affecting your quality of life—whether by making daily activities difficult, preventing you from participating in your favorite activities, or both.
At Texas Foot & Ankle Center, our doctors will carefully go over all your options with you, discussing the pros and cons, so that if you do decide to undergo surgery, you can do so with the confidence that it is the right decision.
