When conservative treatments fail to treat foot problems like bunions and hammertoes, minimally invasive foot or ankle surgery may be a viable solution. At Manhattan Podiatry Group, with locations in New York in Downtown Manhattan, Midtown Manhattan, Staten Island, as well as in Manalapan, New Jersey, board-certified podiatrist Mark Sharobeem, DPM, provides expert foot and ankle surgeries to relieve pain and restore function. Call the nearest office or request an appointment online today.
Foot and ankle surgeries correct problems with the bones, joints, and soft tissues of the feet and ankles.
Dr. Sharobeem recommends conservative treatments before surgery. These measures may include activity modifications, changes in footwear, icing, custom orthotics, pain medications, and regenerative medicine.
If less-invasive treatments can’t resolve your foot or ankle condition, he may recommend surgery.
People with a diagnosed foot problem or injury, like a complex fracture, may need foot or ankle surgery to relieve pain and restore mobility.
Procedures that Dr. Sharobeem performs include:
He may also recommend reconstructive surgery to fix problems with foot structure or gait.
Whenever possible, Dr. Sharobeem operates using minimally invasive techniques. Minimally invasive surgery needs only small incisions and tiny instruments to complete your procedure. That means less blood loss, scarring, and damage to surrounding tissue.
People who undergo minimally invasive surgery usually heal faster than those having conventional surgery, with a lower risk of infection.
The team at Manhattan Podiatry Group works with a surgical center to schedule your procedure. Your surgery is done on an outpatient basis, meaning you go home to recover on the same day and don’t spend the night in the hospital.
Dr. Sharobeem may use regional or general anesthesia so you’re completely comfortable during your procedure. The type of anesthesia used depends on your health history and the type of procedure.
After surgery, you recover in a private room as the nursing staff observes your vital signs. Once you’re ready to move about and you’ve safely come out of anesthesia, you can go home. The team provides you with complete aftercare instructions.
Arrange for someone to take you home as you won’t be able to drive.
