Foot and Ankle Surgery at Wellstar
Wellstar podiatrists recommend non-surgical treatment prior to recommending complex procedures.
When surgery is needed, patients have access to board-certified podiatrists who specialize in reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery. They have experience performing advanced procedures to help patients ease pain, lessen deformity, and repair the foot or ankle’s function.
After surgery, closely supervised postoperative care improves the chances of a quick and smooth recovery. Podiatrists will often prescribe rest, ice, compression, and elevation of the foot and ankle. Following these instructions is important to regaining mobility and preventing recurrent injury.
