Here at Dallas Podiatry Works, we hope that all of our patients can be treated successfully with nonsurgical methods. Fortunately, we are able to use conservative care to effectively handle a wide range of conditions and treat many of our patients in this manner.
Sometimes, though, surgery does become a necessary option. One condition where this especially holds true is with problematic bunions.
In order to determine if it is time to consider bunion surgery, it is important to look at a couple of factors. First, we want to ensure that conservative treatment methods have been adequately explored beforehand. If you find sufficient relief with options like orthotics or bunion pads, then there is no need for a surgical procedure.
Individuals who have diabetes might not wish to risk the post-surgery complications that can arise, but this is a matter that we would discuss together. Other individuals who may wish to stay with conservative approaches include children, athletes, and those afflicted with other health issues.
You will know it is time to consider bunion surgery when:
The bunion causes severe, persistent pain.
You have limitation or restrictions on normal, daily activities – like simply walking.
You cannot wear reasonable shoes without pain.
You are unable to straighten or bend the affected big toe.
The big toe has constant swelling.
When it comes time to making your decision on whether or not to undergo bunion surgery, hopefully it provides some peace of mind knowing that our staff is highly skilled and experienced. We will walk you through the entire process and make sure that you know what to expect. Our goal is your health, so make your appointment with us today. We have offices in two convenient locations, so call our Dallas office at 972.853.7100 or our Plano office at (972) 943-3323.
Your Top-Rated Podiatrist in the Dallas & Fort Worth Metroplex
The doctor has great “bedside manners” when talking to patients. Great staff and comfortable atmosphere.
The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of foot care.
I would highly recommend Dr. Brook to anyone with foot problems–especially problems that stump other podiatrists. He really is very caring and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Joel Brook and the staff were nice and helpful. Though I was a new patient, I got right in as soon as they were open in my preferred location. They diagnosed the problem and provided medicines along with a perfect gel bandage so I could keep exercising while my toes healed. My toes already hurt less and look a little better each day. If I have future issues, I will be a repeat customer. Here’s hoping I don’t, but at least I know my feet are in good hands.
I visited this office for an ingrown toe nail a few years ago. After seeing another doctor, who made it worse, he referred me to Dallas Podiatry Works. The doctor there was able to fix my problem. I’m not great with reviews, all I can tell you is that this doctor and staff will have you up and running or doing whatever it is you do in no time. You will be in great hands. You’d be a fool not to use this doctor. Now its time to visit him again for the other toe.
Been having bad ankle pains for 6 months was referred here and it was a great visit ladies in the front desk medical assistants and the Doctor were all very friendly and make you feel very comfortable.
