Your podiatrist has recommended that you have foot surgery. Podiatrists recommend surgery to relieve pain, correct a deformity or restore function in your foot or ankle. Because most foot surgery is elective, you and your doctor can decide when to have it performed. Foot surgery is usually performed in your doctor’s office, an ambulatory center or in a hospital. You may need tests before the surgery that include blood and urine screenings, chest x-rays or an EKG. Recovery times vary with the type of surgery.
