What is reconstructive surgery?
Dr. Sibel and Dr. Savage perform reconstruction surgery to correct structural abnormalities in your feet or ankles as the result of disease or injury. Surgery can also improve the appearance of your foot and increase your mobility.
Due to the complex nature of the foot and ankle, specialized surgery can be useful in treating several issues and restoring overall health.
Why do I need reconstructive surgery?
Dr. Sibel may recommend reconstructive surgery to treat common foot disorders, including:
- Heel pain
- Bone spurs
- Severe flat feet
- Bone fractures
- Athletic injuries
- Joint or bone deformities
These issues can be the result of a sports injury, ill-fitting shoes, work-related injury, and medical complications such as diabetes.
What can I expect with reconstructive surgery?
Dr. Sibel and Dr. Savage offer the latest advancements in reconstructive surgery, including traditional surgery and arthroscopic surgery. Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Sibel and Dr. Savage create a tailored surgical plan to address your foot and ankle issues.
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that requires only tiny incisions to correct foot structures. The surgery requires general anesthesia, and Dr. Sibel uses small, precise instruments to make repairs. A special device, known as an arthroscope, has a camera that displays a magnified image of your foot or ankle structure on an external monitor.
Following surgery, Dr. Sibel and Dr. Savage close your incisions and wrap the surgical area in bandages. Depending on the reason for your surgery, you may also need to use a splint or a cast to keep your foot or ankle stable.
Dr. Sibel and Dr. Savage monitor your foot or ankle after surgery and can remove the splint or cast when you can regain normal functionality.
What are the benefits of arthroscopic reconstructive surgery?
Because the surgery only requires tiny incisions, you can expect a much faster recovery time than with traditional surgery.
Dr. Sibel and Dr. Savage also use arthroscopic surgery to repair complex issues when traditional surgery isn’t appropriate. Other benefits of this minimally invasive procedure include:
- Less risk of muscle atrophy
- Reduced risk of complications
- Minimal trauma to nearby structures
- Greater range of motion following surgery
Dr. Sibel or Dr. Savage can discuss other benefits of reconstructive surgery during your consultation and also tells you what to expect before and after surgery.
