Is a painful foot or ankle condition preventing you from participating in the activities that were once a part of your daily life? If so, you may require surgery to relieve your pain and restore your mobility. Although the thought of undergoing surgery can sometimes be overwhelming, you can rest easy turning to the compassionate team at North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic in Durham. Our skilled foot surgeons will provide you with the first-rate care you need and deserve.
What Procedures Do We Offer?
At North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic, we follow a patient-centered approach to care, and we generally try to relieve our patients’ symptoms using conservative, nonsurgical measures. This might include participating in physical therapy or using a splint, cast, or brace. However, in the event that surgery is necessary—such as when pain inhibits your mobility and interferes with your quality of life—you can feel confident knowing that our foot surgeons have experience performing a wide array of foot and ankle procedures. Some of the surgeries we most commonly perform include:
- Achilles tendon repairs
- Ankle replacements
- Bunion repairs
- Claw, hammer, and mallet toe repairs
- Posterior tibial tendon repairs
In many instances, our foot surgeons are able to perform procedures arthroscopically, meaning that they use miniature surgical instruments guided by a small camera. Compared to traditional open surgery, arthroscopic procedures require less recovery time and also minimize the risk of infections and other complications.
