Ambulatory Foot Surgery

Ambulatory foot surgery involves simple to complex surgical procedures that are performed in the doctor’s office or an outpatient surgical department. A wide variety of conditions are treated by minimally invasive ambulatory foot surgery:

  • Bunions (hallux valgus)
  • Hammer toes
  • Metatarsalgia (pain under the balls of the toes)
  • Big toe arthritis (Cheilectomy for Hallux Rigidus)
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Some aspects of flat feet surgery
  • Some aspects of ankle arthritis surgery

The procedures may be performed under local or regional anesthesia. A small incision is made and specially-designed instruments are introduced to correct the foot deformity. The incision is then closed with stitches and covered with a bandage. Following surgery, you are able to go home and in most cases even wear shoes.
