Expert Queens Foot Surgeons
Trust our expert podiatrists to perform your foot surgery with care and efficiency
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.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
