While most causes of foot pain can be effectively addressed with rest and non-invasive treatments, conditions that are left untreated may worsen so that surgery becomes an option for foot pain relief.
Types of Foot Surgery
Health care providers usually try non-invasive treatments for foot pain before progressing to more intense therapies like cortisone shots and prescription medications. When these fail to provide adequate foot pain relief, surgery may be considered.
Possible surgery procedures to address foot pain include:
- Ligament release (common surgery for plantar fasciitis)
- Ligament repair/reattachments
- Morton’s Neuroma excision
- Bunion excision
- Bone reconstruction (common surgery for hammertoes and deformities caused by rheumatoid arthritis)
- Ankle replacement
- Fusing ankle bones together
- Nerve repair (possible surgery for dropped foot)
Because of the extensive (and often painful) recovery and risk involved, surgery for foot pain should only be considered after all other treatment options have been exhausted.
