Trust an IBJI orthopedic specialist to accurately find the lower body issues you’re experiencing and return your strength, flexibility and durability.
When is Foot and Ankle Surgery Necessary?
Foot and ankle surgery may become necessary when non-surgical alternatives are ineffective. The most common reasons for foot and ankle surgery are to cure various types of arthritis or birth deformities.
Ankle arthroscopy is typically the go-to technique for all orthopedic surgeries, including foot and ankle procedures. The surgeon makes a small incision on the affected area and uses small surgical tools and a fiber-optic camera to view where damage must be treated. Recovery time after foot or ankle arthroscopy is about four to six weeks upon successful completion of the surgery. Our dedicated foot and ankle surgeons at the Illinois Bone and Joint Institute embrace the latest technology and techniques to put patients back on their feet as soon as possible.
