If you’re working from home, now is the best time to have foot surgery. Foot surgery has come along way and the recovery is much faster now, but it’s still your feet and you need them to walk anywhere. If your days are spent at home on zoom meetings, rather than walking into conference rooms, you should consider having foot surgery now.
If you have a foot problem such as:
- Flat feet
- Reconstructive Surgery
Surgery May Be the Best Option
Foot surgery may be a necessary treatment. After you have tried conservative treatments you and your doctor may consider foot surgery necessary. There are many treatments our offices use such as laser therapy, injections, accommodations before we consider surgery.
The recovery time for foot surgery ranges based on many factors. The severity of the problem and type of surgery will influence the recovery time. Often our patients are able to walk after surgery in about 3 days, but it can be longer for others. Even once our patients are back to walking- there are limitations.
Foot Surgery Recovery
After surgery most patients will need to utilize a controlled ankle movement brace or a surgical shoe. Also, patients will need to reduce the amount of walking. If you’re home without having to walk long distances and your commute went from blocks to rooms in your own home, there isn’t a better time to have your foot surgery.
