Reconstructive Foot & Ankle Surgery Q & A

Why do I need reconstructive foot and ankle surgery?

Reconstructive foot and ankle surgery is usually the last resort if your condition doesn’t respond to conservative therapies, or if you have a more serious or complex issue. Your podiatrist may recommend reconstructive foot or ankle surgery if you have:

  • Severe arthritic degeneration
  • Ruptured tendons or ligaments
  • Complex bone fractures
  • Developmental deformities
  • Joint deformities

Your personalized reconstructive foot and ankle surgery is designed to alleviate discomfort and restore full function in your foot and ankle, so you won’t be restricted another day.

What happens during reconstructive foot and ankle surgery?

The highly skilled foot and ankle surgeons at Hamilton Foot and Ankle Associates have extensive training in repairing the most complex of injuries or conditions, using minimally invasive measures whenever possible. Depending on your diagnosis, your reconstructive foot or ankle surgery can involve:

  • Partially or fully replacing a joint, as with a total ankle replacement
  • Realigning toe joints if you have bunions or hammertoes
  • Fusing damaged or arthritic bones together
  • Repairing or grafting connective tissues

Your reconstructive foot surgery at Hamilton Foot and Ankle Associates is entirely tailored to you, your symptoms, and your daily lifestyle, including exercise and training habits. Rest assured, your dedicated foot and ankle surgeon works diligently to ensure you return to 100% mobility.

How long is the recovery after reconstructive foot and ankle surgery?

One of the reasons reconstructive foot and ankle surgery is often the last resort is because you’re going to experience some downtime. You may be able to start bearing some weight on your treated limb while wearing a supportive boot, within the first week or two.

Usually, you’re in a boot or brace for at least four to six weeks after reconstructive foot and ankle surgery. You’re probably going to be in regular physical therapy sessions during this time, too.

It’s common to have a nearly full recovery from most reconstructive foot and ankle surgeries in as little as six to eight weeks. Your podiatrist at Hamilton Foot and Ankle Associates may have you wait at least 12 weeks to return to all of your regular activities, including exercise and sporting events.
