Foot surgery can be useful in cases where other methods have proven to be ineffective or insufficient in achieving the desired result. And our Buffalo Grove foot surgeon, Anthony Spitz DPM, is skilled and experienced at performing minimally invasive surgery right here at our office. You will not need a hospital stay, and in some cases you can even go right back to work afterward.
For many common foot conditions, the first option for addressing them will be non-invasive. In fact, when it comes to issues like bunions and flexible hammertoes, they respond very well to simple solutions like orthotics (shoe inserts), which provide needed cushioning and/or the shifting of weight off certain joints or parts of the foot that have been taking undue stress. However, those and other foot concerns, like ankle pain, heel spurs, flat feet, neuroma, and tarsal tunnel may need the expertise of our Buffalo Grove foot surgeon in order to give you the best opportunity for full healing and the alleviation of pain. In fact, to take rigid hammertoes, for example, there is no other effective method for dealing with them. Why should you have to suffer with pain that can make it difficult or even impossible to walk or even put on your shoes? Our Buffalo Grove foot surgeon performs these procedures using a tiny incision that causes minimal trauma, less bleeding and pain, and results in faster rehabilitation time. That’s certainly a lot of benefit for very little risk. When you come in for an examination and a consultation, your foot will be evaluated to determine if you are a good candidate for surgery. Your options, if any, will be discussed. The final choice, of course, is always yours.
