Minimally Invasive Foot Surgery NYC

Our NYC podiatrist, Dr Sophia Solomon places great importance on the aesthetic result of her surgical procedures, as well as their functional outcome. Recent advances have enabled new “no scar” surgical procedures like minimally invasive bunion surgery and hammer toe surgery which provide comparable and often superior results than traditional surgical methods. Your Manhattan foot doctor offers all the latest techniques and treatments. All symptoms, potential procedural/surgical options should always be discussed with your podiatrist after a thorough consultation and examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

Recent advances have enabled new “no scar” surgical procedures like minimally invasive bunion surgery and hammer toe surgery which provide comparable and often superior results than traditional surgical methods.

Fear of scarring frightens many people away from surgeries that would greatly help them. We are sympathetic to these fears and will clearly explain our minimally invasive options and the cosmetic outcomes you should expect. Traditionally, both bunion and hammer toes surgery  would result in a large visible scare. However, with our minimally invasive foot surgery techniques, you can correct your bunion and hammer toes with minimal to no visible scarring. All questions about this procedure will be answered during your consultation with a foot doctor.

Expectations

While there are some surgeries where a minimally invasive approach may  yield less superior results, for example, Achilles tendon surgery, bunion and hammer toe surgery actually have better results when using this method. Your Manhattan foot doctor, Dr Sophia Solomon recommends minimally invasive techniques whenever possible for both aesthetic and medical reasons. In other words, the foot will look better and heal faster. For your NYC podiatrist, these methods are often a superior choice. Ingrown toenails are usually removed without a scar.

Minimally invasive surgery refers to surgical foot procedures that:

  • Usually are performed in the office of your podiatrist or at a surgical center
  •  
  • Typically are outpatient procedures allowing you to go home the same day
  •  
  • Rely on very small incisions which minimize scarring and soft tissue disruption
  •  
  • Use scopes with tiny cameras and instruments
  •  
  • Leave you with less pain
  •  
  • Often let you walk out after the procedure with minimal assistance
  •  
  • Have fewer complications
  •  
  • Have a quicker recovery period

With all these benefits, it’s no wonder your podiatrist opts for minimally invasive procedures!

Flat Foot Surgery
by SophiaSolomon
Sep 25, 2020 | 219 views | 0 0 comments | 10 10 recommendations | email to a friend | print | permalink

flat foot surgery

Flat feet can cause pain, arthritis and tendon degeneration and is something that should be treated from an early age. If your flat foot pain is affecting your quality of life on a daily basis your New York foot doctor may recommend flat foot surgery. The goal of flat foot surgery is to create an arch in the foot and realign your center of gravity to a functionally optimal position. This type of surgery has a long recovery period thus conservative care should always be attempted first. Flat foot surgery is considered a reconstructive surgery and is quite customized to each foot depending on the individual patients bone structure and tendon health. All symptoms, potential procedural/surgical options should always be discussed with your podiatrist after a thorough consultation and examination  for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

How to Tell if You Need Surgery

If you have flat feet, you may have felt symptoms of foot and ankle pain even when participating in normal daily activities. You may have had difficulty walking or running and notice unusual patterns of wear on your shoes. If you have used orthotics or bracing with little success and if you are unable to stand on your toes without pain then surgical treatment by your New York City foot doctor may be recommended.Non-surgical treatments you may try prior to surgery include:

  • Immobilization
  • Rest
  • Braces
  • Shoe inserts
  • Physical therapy

A good podiatrist in NYC will perform a thorough examination of your foot. The surgical evaluation usually will include a thorough medical history and x-rays. An MRI may be utilized if tendon involvement is suspected.

When to Avoid Surgery

Flat foot surgery is considered a reconstructive surgery and is quite customized to each foot depending on the individual patients bone structure and tendon health.

If you take steroids or have a disease like diabetes, you should be evaluated by your primary care doctor before considering a surgical procedure for flat foot. These conditions may prevent you from being a candidate for a surgical option. If you have blood clots, wound problems, obesity issues and/or smoking addictions, you may be at a higher risk for complications from surgery.

Be aware that a complete recovery from flat foot surgery can take 6 months or more.If you’re not able or willing to accept the recovery process during this length of time, surgery may not be an option for you. before you opt for surgery, talk with the best podiatrist in NYC, Dr. Sophia Solomon, about non-surgical or conservative treatments that may improve your condition. You have to weigh the benefits of the surgery against your commitment to the process.

Cheilectomy (Big Toe Arthritis Surgery) from Manhattan Foot Specialists
by SophiaSolomon
Sep 25, 2020 | 1682 views | 0 0 comments | 84 84 recommendations | email to a friend | print | permalink

big toe joint

A Cheilectomy is a procedure to surgically remove painful bone spurs. Bone spurs can be the result of arthritis or the pulling of a tendon or ligament causing reactive bone to form. Bone spurs can sometimes cause painful lesions on your skin which can be especially irritating when wearing certain types of shoes.  Less commonly, a bone spur can result after a fracture from the bone healing in a displaced position. The big-toe joint is the most common location a cheilectomy is done and it is generally performed to increase motion at that joint or to remove a painful bony prominence and/or bunion.

All symptoms should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by your podiatrist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan to exclude any underlying serious condition.

Why You May Need Cheilectomy

The big-toe joint is the most common location a cheilectomy is done and it is generally performed to increase motion at that joint or to remove a painful bony prominence and/or bunion.

It is common for bone spurs to occur around your big toe joint and begin to hinder motion and cause pain. Good range of motion is very important at this joint and imperative to normal gait. Your podiatrist in NYC can remove the bone spurs around the big toe providing relief of pain and return of normal movement at this joint. Your foot doctor will ensure to leave the bone smooth to prevent any later shoe irritation at the site. If deficits in the cartilage are found then your foot doctor in New York may drill small holes in the joint to allow new cartilage to form.

All symptoms, potential procedural/surgical options should always be discussed with your podiatrist of New York City podiatry after a thorough consultation and examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

The Surgical Procedure

It is common for bone spurs to occur around your big toe joint and begin to hinder motion and cause pain. Good range of motion is very important at this joint and imperative to normal gait.

If you have a painful bone or toe spur condition and have been unsuccessful with conservative treatment,a cheilectomy may be a good option for you.  A cheilectomy, performed by your New York foot doctor, is a procedure where the extra bone growth is removed. At Manhattan foot specialist, the cosmetic and functional result is always of high priority.  Your NYC podiatrist will keep the cosmetic result in mind during each procedure. Your foot specialist can perform the procedure using cosmetic principles to leave minimal scaring. A sterile bandage is applied after surgery to protect the area during healing..

This procedure is performed at a surgical center. Typically, you receive local anesthesia with IV sedation administered from an anesthesiologist for this outpatient procedure. You typically return home to recuperate following the procedure unless you have an adverse reaction to the anesthesia. Your New York Podiatric doctor and staff will make sure you have the best care and that your recovery is comfortable.

Heel Spur Surgery
by SophiaSolomon
Sep 25, 2020 | 1372 views | 0 0 comments | 63 63 recommendations | email to a friend | print | permalink

Heel Spur Surgery NYC

Your heel is the primary exit point for the vertical forces travelling through your body. Each time you walk, run and jump, the heel is absorbing the shock of the body weight above and the ground force below. Thus it is no surprise so many people suffer from chronic heel pain. The most common cause of heel pain is a plantar fasciitis with or without the presence of a heel spur. Plantar fasciitis is caused by the pulling of a thick band of tissue that connects your heel to your forefoot. As you absorb shocks the arch of your foot tends to flatten with each step causing this band of tissue to stretch. As it is stretched, this band of tissue known as the plantar fascia, tugs on the heel bone (calcaneous) causing a heel spur to form. Conservative treatment is successful in relieving symptoms in most patients but some go on to needing surgery. Surgical treatment for heel spurs and plantar fasciitis yields great results and total relief of pain shortly after surgery is attained in most cases. All symptoms, potential procedural/surgical options should always be discussed with your podiatrist after a thorough consultation and examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

Relieving Your Pain

Surgical treatment for heel spurs and plantar fasciitis yields great results and total relief of pain shortly after surgery is attained in most cases.

The intense pain you feel may start to affect your work, fitness and social life. Your New York City podiatrist will determine the cause of the pain whether it be the heel spur or the tight band of tissue. Clinical examination and x-ray imaging is typically used to form this diagnosis. If conservative management has been unsuccessful, we will then discuss your surgical options.

In the past, a much more invasive procedure was needed to remove the spur. Now we have several minimal incision surgical options known as percutanous heel spur surgery.

Heel spurs are especially tender when you walk or even when you just stand for a prolonged amount of time and in the morning after rest. The best rated NYC podiatrists initially treat your heel spur with simple non-invasive treatments such as:

  • Stretching exercises
  • Cortisone injections
  • Shoe Modifications
  • Athletic taping of foot and heel for added support
  • Orthotics
  • Physical therapy

If your heel pain hasn’t responded to non-invasive treatments, your New York podiatric doctor may recommend surgery.

Schedule an appointment with a leading podiatrist NYC to learn about solutions for your heel pain.

Cheilectomy

Cheilectomy

Cheilectomy
 

Bone spurs can form from a variety of conditions resulting in painful lesions on your skin which can be especially irritating when wearing certain types of shoes. Bone spurs can be the result of arthritis or the pulling of a tendon or ligament causing reactive bone to form. A bone spur can even result after a fracture from the bone healing in a misaligned position.

If you have a severe bone or toe spur condition and it becomes painful, we always begin with conservative treatment and, if not successful, a cheilectomy may be a good option for you.  A cheilectomy, performed by your New York foot doctor, is a procedure where the extra bone growth is removed.

All symptoms, potential procedural/surgical options should always be discussed with your podiatrist of New York City podiatry after a thorough consultation and examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

Why You May Need Cheilectomy

It is common for bone spurs to occur around your big toe joint and begin to hinder motion and cause pain. Good range of motion is very important at this joint and imperative to normal gait. Your podiatrist in NYC can remove the bone spurs around the big toe providing relief of pain and return of normal movement at this joint. Your foot doctor will ensure to leave the bone smooth to prevent any later shoe irritation at the site. If deficits in the cartilage are found then your foot doctor in New York may drill small holes in the joint to allow new cartilage to form.

The Surgical Procedure

At Manhattan foot specialist, the cosmetic and functional result is always of high priority.  Your NYC podiatrist will keep the cosmetic result in mind during each procedure. Your foot specialist closes the incision with sutures in a fashion to leave minimal scaring. A sterile bandage is applied after surgery to protect the area from infection.

Typically, you receive local anesthesia with IV sedation administered from an anesthesiologist for this outpatient procedure. You typically return home to recuperate following the procedure unless you have an adverse reaction to the anesthesia. Your New York Podiatric doctor and staff will make sure you have the best care and that your recovery is comfortable.

Potential Complications after Cheilectomy

Complications are rare, but can occur. Possible complications include:

  • Nerve irritation: Irritation to your big toe nerves may occur as a result of this procedure, resulting in partially numb regions of your big toe. Most of these nerve issues resolve in a couple months.
  • Infection: Tenderness, redness and increased pain after surgery are all indicators of infection. If you experience any of these, see your podiatric doctor or visit the emergency room immediately. Usually, infection at the surface of the wound can be treated with antibiotics. For deeper infections, your podiatrist in New York City may recommend intravenous antibiotics. Be sure to notify your foot doctor if the dressing became soiled, wet or if it was exposed to any contaminants.
  • Blood clots: Every surgery carries the risk of developing blood clots. Bone spur removal is no different. However, the risk of developing blood clots is lower in a cheilectomy, as this procedure has a shorter healing time than most surgeries. Therefore, you can return to activity sooner, and your circulation will be improved, resulting in fewer blood clots. Notify your New York City foot doctor if you’ve had blood clots in the past or if you’re at risk for blood clots now. As a precaution, your podiatrist may prescribe blood-thinning medications, which you may have to take these for a few weeks after your surgery.
  • Arthritis progression: Arthritis may develop more quickly if there was a lot of wear and tear on your big toe joint. Cheilectomy doesn’t reverse the underlying causes of arthritis; therefore, it’s may recur over time. If arthritis symptoms recur, the next step may be to fuse your big toe or consider a replacement of the first MTP joint.
  • Problems with healing: In most cases, your wound heals without any problems. If you have conditions such as inflammatory arthritis, diabetes or poor blood pressure, for example, you may receive special instructions on wound care after your surgery. If you’re a smoker, that may interfere with proper wound healing. Follow all recommendations from your foot doctor with regard to smoking. You may have to stop smoking completely until your foot is totally healed.
  • Too much too soon:If you have a physically active lifestyle, beware of returning to strenuous activities too soon, as it can adversely impact the healing time of your wound. Also, returning to normal footwear too soon after surgery may result in irritating your wound, even after the stitches have been removed and the wound appears fully healed. Ask your NYC podiatrist for guidance.

Recovery from Bone Spur Surgery

Most podiatrists and foot doctors will allow you to return to full activity soon after your procedure since this procedure does not typically destabilize any bone.  You’re able to walk right after surgery in a surgical shoe. You may have to use a cane or crutches after surgery.

Your podiatrist provides at-home instructions on proper surgical care. For example, keep your foot raised to reduce swelling. Expect to take a few days off of work or school after surgery to give your foot the proper rest it needs.

Your doctor removes your stitches about two weeks after the surgery, when your incision has healed. Your podiatry doctor often recommends a physical therapist to provide you with range-of-motion exercises. One is gently lifting your big toe up and down on a regular basis to prevent it from stiffening. Your podiatrist in Manhattan may advise you to start walking regularly to promote the range of motion, or you may be instructed to walk on your heel to avoid putting pressure on the affected toe.

Typically, you return to your normal lifestyle within about a month, although playing sports and wearing heels may take longer depending on the procedure. You can potentially have swelling and residual pain for up to 3-6 months after your surgery. Ask your podiatrist NYC for opinion and instructions on weather this procedure would benefit you.

All symptoms, potential procedural/surgical options should always be discussed with your podiatrist after a thorough consultation and examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
