Flat Foot Surgery
Most people with flat feet have little to no pain associated with their condition. However, for some people, flat feet can become extremely painful and cause problems throughout the body. When this is the case, flat foot surgery may be recommended to help alleviate the pain.
Whether the condition is due to weak tendons in the foot or the joints collapsing, an orthopedic foot surgeon can treat your condition with a surgery that realigns the foot and repairs or replaces damaged tendons.
Several weeks of non-weight-bearing are required after surgery followed by a period of rehabilitation. Once the foot is properly healed, however, shoe wear and activities are more comfortable and you can return to an active lifestyle.
