When Foot Surgery is the Only Remaining Option, Make Sure You're 100% Comfortable First


At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

Foot surgery to correct bunion deformity by Houston foot surgeonAt Tanglewood Foot Specialists, we truly believe that foot surgery is meant to be a last resort. We will always consider non–surgical solutions first. We will explore every treatment option to find the right solution for you. There is, however, a time when surgery is the only remaining option.

Any surgery can cause worry, which is why we will take as much time with you as you feel you need to answer your question so you know exactly what the plan is. We will work together to address any concerns and will have a clear postoperative course mapped out. Nobody likes surprises and you'll find that your surgical experience will go exactly as you were told it would be.

If you are currently scheduled for surgery or if surgery was recommended, we would be happy to offer a second opinion to be sure that you are fully comfortable with the decision.
