Expert Queens Foot Surgeons

Trust our expert podiatrists to perform your foot surgery with care and efficiency

At Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, our Queens foot surgeons are capable of performing a wide variety of procedures to treat some of the most common and severe foot conditions and injuries, no matter how complex.

In most cases, foot surgery is not a major surgery, as many of the procedures we perform are minimally invasive. However, if you do require a major podiatric surgical procedure such as an amputation or the removal of certain types of tumors, our surgeons have the skill and expertise to perform it effectively and achieve positive treatment outcomes.

Many forms of foot surgery may restrict your movement for a period of time following your procedure as you recover. You can prepare your home ahead of time by stocking up on essential groceries and medications, placing everything you may need within reach on the first floor of your home, and keeping your phone close in case of an emergency.

Deformity Correction Surgery

Our Queens foot surgeons can treat a wide variety of foot deformities, including bunions and hammertoes. Some of the procedures we perform include bunion and bunionette correction surgery, tarsalmetatarsal joint fusion, and hammertoe correction surgery.

Joint Fusion

We perform several different types of joint fusion surgery, including metatarsophalangeal joint fusion, which is performed for the management of hallux rigidus, and tarsalmetatarsal joint fusion, which assists in managing the symptoms of bunions. 

Foot Injuries

No matter how complex or severe of an injury your foot has sustained, we have the surgical expertise to help. Our team routinely performs fracture management surgery, tendon repairs, ligamentous injury management procedures, digital and metatarsal fracture surgery, and plantar plate repairs.

Tendo-Achilles Lengthening

Tendo-Achilles lengthening surgery extends a contracted Achilles tendon, which can relieve chronic pain and allow a person with flat feet to walk without a bend in their knee. This procedure involves either one large incision or several small ones at the back of the ankle.

Gastrocnemius Recession

Gastrocnemius recession surgery allows the heel to shift down into a natural position, providing relief from conditions such as flatfoot, Achilles tendonitis, and equinus. This is often performed as an outpatient procedure, allowing you to return home within the same day of treatment. .

Plantar Fasciitis

Our surgeons can treat plantar fasciitis, one of the most common causes of heel pain, through a few different procedures, including endoscopic or single-incision plantar fascioctomy or topaz surgery. A plantar fascioctomy detaches the fascia from the heel bone, while topaz surgery creates small holes in the fascia that allow blood flow to return to the site of surgery and stimulate the healing process.

Neuroma Excision

If you suffer from Morton’s neuroma, a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes that causes sharp, burning pain, our surgeons can help. Neuroma excision involves an incision that is made between the toes, either to make more space for the nerve or to remove part of it. 

Soft Tissue Mass Removal

Tumors such as lipomas, ganglion cysts, and other soft tissue masses can develop nearly anywhere in your body, including your feet. While not all of these masses may be malignant, many may still interfere with your mobility or comfort. Our surgeons can remove these masses with minimal complications or damage to surrounding tissue.

Ingrown Toenail Removal

Ingrown toenails can cause chronic pain to their surrounding tissues. Our surgeons can remove either part of an ingrown toenail or the full toenail to relieve pain. If the toenail continues to develop the same issue each time it grows back, we can disrupt the nail matrix to prevent it from returning.

Corn and Callus Removal

Corns and calluses are not typically removed through surgery, but a misaligned bone can cause them to develop through additional friction against the skin of the foot. A podiatric surgeon can correct the alignment of these bones, often as an outpatient procedure.

Limb Salvage

Some severe injuries and invasive surgeries may cause significant damage to the foot. Our surgeons can restore the appearance and function of your foot through reconstructive surgical techniques, preventing avoidable amputations from occurring.
