#2- The Longer Pain Lasts The Greater
Chance Surgery Is Needed
Our philosophy when it comes to any foot or ankle condition is, surgery as the last resort. We have so many treatment options available to us for most conditions. We are constantly researching new ways to end foot and ankle pain without doing surgery.
Some conditions do get to the point where surgery is necessary. If so, we do the least invasive procedures that get people back to normal activity as soon as possible.
What is frustrating, for us and our patients, is when surgery could have been avoided simply by addressing the condition much sooner. Whether it’s Plantar Fascitis, a Bunion, or an Ankle Injury, the longer it’s left untreated the worse it gets.
A simple solution can turn in to a major ordeal. Even know surgical outcomes are good, 98% of the time, the pain and recovery time are inconvenient…and in many cases, could have been avoided.
