Nobody enjoys undergoing surgery, but sometimes it is the best way to relieve persistent pain. At Coastal Podiatry Associates, we try every possible non-invasive measure before recommending surgery. However, if you undergo a surgical procedure, you will be treated by the same foot and ankle specialists who have been by your side all along.
Your Foot Surgery Is Performed by a Board-Certified SC Podiatrist
Our podiatrists are all board-certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. No matter which of our specialists you see, you will receive our trademark care and attention, ensuring that your concerns are heard before the procedure. We even perform many minor surgical procedures in our offices, so you may not need to go to a hospital for your treatment.
We perform all manner of minor and comprehensive foot surgeries, including:
- Peripheral neuropathy. We are proud to offer an advanced, state-of-the-art surgery for patients with neuropathy. Whether you are suffering from nerve damage due to diabetes complications, chemotherapy, or another disorder, we can help to improve circulation and restore sensation in your feet.
- Bunions. If a bunion has not improved with corrective footwear, we can perform surgery to remove the bunion and realign the toe, ensuring proper foot mechanics after the foot is healed.
- Hammertoes. A permanently bent toe (hammertoe) may need surgical intervention to restore balance in the foot. This usually involves lengthening or releasing the ligaments in the toe.
- Arch disorders. If your arches have fallen to the point where they are placing extreme stress on your joints, you may require tendon repairs along the inside of the foot to reinforce the arch.
- Ingrown toenails. A toenail that is causing severe pain or has become infected may need to be removed via minor outpatient surgery.
- Soft tissue masses and tumors. We remove painful growths on the tops and bottoms of the feet, helping patients walk without pain. Benign growths such as neuromas, non-cancerous tumors, and masses may all be removed to restore walking comfort and proper gait.
- Reconstructive foot surgery. We perform surgery to relieve pain and restore function in the feet after severe trauma and athletic injuries. Common procedures include ankle reconstruction, shortening or lengthening tendons, fusing broken or unstable bones, and repair of Achilles tendon tears and ruptures.
