Foot and Ankle Reconstruction Treatment

Foot and Ankle Reconstruction Surgery

The ankle joint works hard to keep you upright and allow your feet their full range of motion. When this joint becomes unstable, painful, or limited in its range of motion, your gait and balance can be affected. Foot and ankle reconstruction surgery is a powerful tool to restore full strength and stability to the joint.

At Greater Austin Podiatry Associates, we offer foot and ankle reconstruction surgery as part of our comprehensive approach to treating foot and ankle problems. Our foot and ankle surgeon, Milam Raimsch, DPM, is experienced in performing these procedures and will help you determine the best approach for reconstructing the joint and restoring full mobility.

If you're ready to take the next step and discuss your options for foot and ankle reconstruction surgery, schedule an appointment with Greater Austin Podiatry Associates today. We'll work closely with you throughout the entire process to ensure that you get the best results from your procedure.

Minimally-Invasive Foot and Ankle Surgery

At Greater Austin Podiatry Associates, we use the latest minimally-invasive techniques to perform foot and ankle reconstruction surgery. Dr. Raemsch is highly trained and skilled in these procedures, which can reduce your risk of infection and scarring while providing superb outcomes.

Here's how it works:

  • Small incisions allow us to insert a miniature camera and specialized instruments into the ankle joint.
  • This allows us to work directly on the structures that need repair without having to remove tissue from other areas.
  • We can then repair ligaments, tendons, muscles, and bones without causing damage or scarring to surrounding tissues.

After your surgery, we will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your ankle, as well as specific exercises that can help you regain range of motion and strength. We'll also provide follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and make sure that the joint is healing properly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why might I need foot or ankle reconstruction surgery?

Foot and ankle reconstruction surgery can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Torn or damaged ligaments, tendons, and muscles in the foot or ankle
  • Instability in the ankle joint due to previous trauma or injury
  • Deformities caused by bony abnormalities
  • Arthritis that has caused joint deterioration or instability

If you're experiencing chronic pain, swelling, stiffness, or limited range of motion due to any of these conditions, foot and ankle reconstruction surgery may be the answer.

How long does it take to recover from foot & ankle reconstruction?

No two people recover in the same manner, and recovery times can vary significantly. Your orthopedic foot specialist will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your ankle before and after the surgery.

In general, there will be some pain and swelling initially, which can be managed through prescribed medications and icing. You may be instructed to wear a protective boot and use crutches or other assistive devices until you are able to walk without discomfort.

It's important to follow all of Dr. Raemsch’s instructions during this time so that you can get back on your feet as quickly and safely as possible.
