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.
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) 566-7474 or our Plano office at (972) 943-3323.
