posted: May 19, 2021.

Foot pain can be debilitating and take away from your quality of life. You don’t have to let foot pain take over your entire life. It’s important that you understand when foot and ankle surgery is an option and can help relieve your pain and get you back to your daily activities again. Dr. Samvel Keshishyan, Dr. Samvel Keshishyan, and Dr. Philip Watkins at NextGen Foot and Ankle Care Center in Glendale, Glendale, and South Pasadena, MI, are here to help you identify when foot and ankle surgery is a viable option that can help improve your life and relieve your pain.

What Can Foot and Ankle Surgery Help With?

There are some conditions that can only be resolved with foot and ankle surgery from your Glendale, Glendale, and South Pasadena, MI, podiatrists. Some examples of conditions that surgery can help are:

  • Bunions
  • Heel Spurs
  • Hammertoes
  • Flat Feet
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Neuroma
  • Achilles Tendon Tear
  • Warts

Before recommending surgery, your podiatrist will go through less invasive treatments, like physical therapy or orthotics, first. If your podiatrist finds that your condition and your pain aren’t improving, it may be time to consider foot and ankle surgery. If pain lasts for six months or your condition is affecting your everyday life by limiting the activities you can perform or the footwear that you can use, foot or ankle surgery may be your only option to improve your quality of life and get you back to your active, happy lifestyle again.
