A broken bone? Plantar fasciitis? Not all foot pains or injuries require surgery, but sometimes an operation keeps problems from getting worse. At the Center for Foot and Ankle Care in Denver, Dr. Eugene Rosenthall offers a wide range of podiatry and orthopedic surgical procedures to help children and adults regain movement and ease in their feet and ankles. If you think you may need foot surgery, call Dr. Rosenthall’s office today to schedule your appointment. You can even book online.
Mild foot or ankle pain affects most of us at some point, but some foot and ankle pain doesn’t go away on its own. In these cases, you may need to see a foot and ankle surgeon.
Surgeons like Dr. Rosenthall can perform surgeries to treat a variety of conditions:
Dr. Rosenthall may suggest foot or ankle surgery if you’ve been living with chronic pain, your condition severely impacts your lifestyle, or other treatments were ineffective.
If you require foot or ankle surgery, preparation increases your chance of a successful recovery. During a pre-op appointment, Dr. Rosenthall discusses the recovery process for your specific operation. He explains the procedure and what you can expect right afterward, the following day, and throughout the healing process.
He may give you a list of restrictions or recommend crutches, a cane, or a knee scooter. Dr. Rosenthall is likely to advise you to stay off of your foot for a period or request that you abstain from wearing a regular shoe.
Dr. Rosenthall strongly suggests planning ahead, so you’re prepared for your post-op care. His best pointers include grocery shopping ahead of time and creating a “home base” by putting everything you need (like your telephone, remote control, and medication) in one place.
The tendons, bones, joints, and ligaments in your feet are delicate and susceptible to injury. Foot surgery repairs minor and major problems before they become worse or create additional health complications.
Dr. Rosenthall is skilled at treating a wide range of conditions and committed to helping you get back on healthy feet as quickly as possible.
When your foot pain doesn’t go away after rest and over-the-counter pain relievers, seek the help of a board-certified foot surgeon. Call to schedule your appointment with Dr. Rosenthall or book your appointment online.
