When is foot surgery the right choice?
If a foot condition makes wearing a shoe impossible or too painful, there is little that can be done outside of surgery to correct such a problem. Other times patients visit my Houston practice and already have exhausted the conservative options and proceeding with surgery is appropriate.
Most importantly, don't let the fear of surgery stop you from pursuing relief from your foot pain. In most cases, there are plenty of treatments that will be effective before surgery is ever entertained.
