Foot Surgery & Ankle Surgery

Foot surgery or ankle surgery is often necessary to alleviate pain or correct deformities, such as bunions. Our Northwest Indiana foot surgeons have completed extensive training in foot and ankle surgery beyond the typical four years of podiatry school. Dr. Nirenberg has published on foot surgery and his advice has been sought by prestigious news and media organizations, including USA Today, FOX News, the Wall Street Journal and Chicago’s WBBM radio.

Most of the foot surgery our foot surgeons do to correct toe, heel, foot or ankle problems are performed on an out-patient basis at local hospitals or surgical centers in Northwest Indiana. This means that when you have us do your foot surgery or your ankle surgery you get to go home the same day. Incidentally, most of our foot surgery or ankle surgery patients can walk the same day and usually experience minimal to no discomfort.

When a foot surgeon from Friendly Foot Care talks about foot surgery or ankle surgery, they are including everything from alleviating a painful ingrown toenail to bunion surgery to plantar fasciitis surgery to neuroma and hammertoe surgery, and nearly any foot surgery or ankle surgery in-between.

Some people have more than one foot problem that may need surgery. The photo shows a woman who may need surgery for her bunion (the bump on the side of the foot) and also for the painful hammertoe (the bent toe).

In this case, the photo of the foot shows the second toe is actually overlapping the first toe. An overlapping toe deformity can be quite painful and often require surgery to alleviate the problem.
