Foot & Ankle Surgery

Although we always try to heal your feet and ankles through non-surgical means whenever possible, sometimes a deformity, injury, or other condition will require a more aggressive approach.

Unfortunately, far too many people delay getting the treatment they need because they’re afraid they might need surgery. Don’t let this be you!

At Capital Podiatry Associates, our expert staff of podiatric physicians use advanced surgical and non-surgical techniques to get you the best possible care—and the earlier you come to see us, the more likely surgery will not be needed.

We Will Never Rush into Surgery

Although both of our physicians are excellent surgeons who have each performed thousands of successful procedures, we still see foot and ankle surgery as a last resort.

That’s why we offer a wide variety of advanced conservative therapies, including the Multiwave Locked System (MLS) laser therapy, therapeutic ultrasound, premium orthotic insoles and shoes, and more. Often, these tools allow us to treat injuries non-invasively when more traditional conservative treatments would have fallen short.

In general, surgery is recommended under the following circumstances:

  • Pain, deformity, or disability is constant, severe, and/or preventing you from living the lifestyle you want to live.
  • You have exhausted all potentially applicable conservative treatment options for a period of time, and the pain has either not gone away, or returned.

Once again, the earlier you seek help for a painful foot or ankle, the more successful treatment avenues we will likely have to help you.

Care Doesn’t Stop After You Leave the Office

It’s not enough to simply receive a successful surgical procedure from a skilled surgeon.

If you want the best possible outcome from your surgery, you (as well as any caregivers) will need to protect the surgical site and carefully follow all post-surgical home care instructions, as well as keep any scheduled follow-up appointments.

At Capital Podiatry Associates, we’ll always take time to make sure you and your loved ones are fully prepared for a successful recovery. We will happily answer your questions and make sure you have all the notes and documentation you need.  

And of course, you can always give us a call with any further questions you might have.

If you are currently suffering from any pain, deformity, or disability in your feet or ankles, please don’t wait any longer—call us today for effective, personalized treatment options. You can reach our Alexandria, VA office at (703) 560-3773, or by filling out our online contact form.
