How foot or ankle surgery can help you.
When you have foot or ankle pain, it can make your life miserable. It can keep you from being able to manage your daily activities including walking, working and exercise. Your pain can be due to everyday wear and tear, aging, injury, or it could be a sign of something more serious, like diabetes. With severe foot and ankle pain, sometimes foot or ankle surgery can help. When you are thinking about surgery, don’t see just anyone. You need to visit a skilled podiatrist like Dr. David Mansky, your foot doctor and foot and ankle surgery specialist in Hastings, MI.
Dr. Mansky performs foot surgeries for many different reasons including:
- Bunion surgery–involving removal of extra tissue around your toe joint, fusing the joints in your toe, or removing some of the bone in your big toe, to create a normal shape to your toe
- Toenail surgery–to relieve ingrown toenail by trimming or removing part of your toenail, or removing your toenail entirely
Dr. Mansky performs ankle surgery to correct deformities of the ankle. These deformities can be the result of injury, birth defects or diseases including rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, diabetes or neuromuscular disorders.
Usually foot or ankle surgery is necessary to repair fractures of the foot or ankle. Typically, your Hastings foot doctor will reposition the bone back into normal alignment and insert screws and metal plates to hold the bone together while it heals.
Dr. Mansky can perform your foot or ankle surgery usually on a same-day, outpatient basis, but you will need a driver and someone to stay with you the first 24 hours after surgery. So don’t let your pain persist! It’s time to consider foot and ankle surgery. You need to see the best, Dr. David Mansky, your podiatrist with two offices in Hastings and Caledonia, Michigan.
