West Vancouver Foot Clinic Performs Foot Surgery for Serious Issues
Surgery of the Foot
Podiatric surgery performed on the foot is conducted by highly qualified podiatric surgeons who are trained specifically to deal with these problems. The problem may result from birth defects, hereditary, trauma, arthritis, physical stress, improper shoes, muscle and joint imbalances, and even the hard surfaces on which you walk. The important fact to remember is that podiatric surgeons are the physicians most thoroughly trained to manage problems of the foot.
Conservative treatment of many foot problems often produces temporary relief of pain. If pain persists, surgery is sometimes the more definitive answer to a persistent problem and the best way to prevent more serious conditions from developing. On the other hand, surgery is not always the best approach for all patients.
