Questions on the foot

Foot Surgery has benefited for more than twenty years from new techniques recognized all over the world. Since then, numerous works have been published at the various French and international congresses.

For years, patients have been asking themselves questions about their foot problems:

  • What is the origin of the deformities (hallux valgus, claw toes, flat foot, cavus foot, etc.)?
  • What causes the pain?
  • Is surgery the only solution and what happens by waiting?
  • Do I really need to have surgery?
  • Are there any therapeutic alternatives without surgery?
  • If there is an operation: is it painful, can there be recurrence, at what age, in what season, and how will this operation work?
  • What are the benefits to be expected from the operation?
  • Are there any risks associated with the operation?
  • What would be the outcome if not treated?
  • Can I take a second opinion?
  • What is the surgeon’s practice and skill in the proposed procedure?
  • How will my foot be anesthetized?
  • What are the classic suites and how does recovery work?
  • How will I be able to wear shoes after the operation and when will I be able to wear shoes normally?
  • What are the possible long-term complications?
  • Will the scar be visible?
  • What is the cost of the intervention?
  • How long does it take to resume normal activity (driving, working, sports, etc.)?
  • How do I get faster recovery?
