More on Foot and Ankle Surgery

Foot and ankle surgery is a podiatric specialty. They treat common foot issues, like bunions, severe problems, like Morton's Neuroma, and detect other foot-related diseases such as diabetes. Other diseases they help treat or manage include arthritis and cardiovascular disease. You need to speak with your Bethlehem, Macungie, and Quakertown podiatrist when you're suffering from foot problems that may persist or affect your overall health.

When you meet with your podiatrist, expect the following questions, especially since your doctor will be assessing the need for foot surgery:

  • What are your symptoms? Do you feel a sharp or dull pain, for example?
  • How bad are your symptoms?
  • Does the pain have an effect on your everyday life?
  • How is your response to other treatments, like drugs?
  • Do you need special footwear?

Dr. Diamond has years of experience when it comes to dealing with foot problems and can tell you if any of the following should be something worrying, or a simple annoyance:

  • Metatarsal Surgery
  • Achilles Tendon Disorders
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Bunions
  • Hammer Toes
  • Ankle Arthritis, which may need ankle fusions, triple fusions, and ankle replacements
  • Tibialis Posterior Dysfunction
  • Plantar Fasciitis

Foot and ankle surgery has several advantages. It may lead to long-lasting pain relief, give you a greater choice of comfortable footwear, improve function and mobility, and help create aesthetically pleasing feet, depending on the procedure.
