Hospital Based Surgeries Q & A

When is foot surgery needed?

When a foot problem either does not respond to conservative management techniques or is too significant for conservative techniques to be helpful foot surgery can provide effective relief of pain as well as improved function. Dr. Matika will recommend surgery only after a complete and thorough evaluation to determine its necessity.

Why can't I have the surgery performed in the office?

While some simpler procedures can be performed in Dr. Matika's state-of-the-art office, others require the support of a full-service medical facility like a hospital or surgery center in order to ensure the best outcomes and patient care. Dr. Matika will discuss the need for hospital-based surgery during your evaluation, and she'll answer all your questions so you can feel confident about the care you receive and where you receive it.

What types of hospital-based foot surgery does Dr. Matika perform?

Dr. Matika has significant experience in successfully treating many different types of foot problems. Some of the most common include:

  • Foot fusion surgery to facilitate movement and decrease or eliminate pain in people with arthritis of the foot

  • Surgery to correct pressure or dysfunction in the midfoot region and the “ball” of the foot (metatarsal surgery)

  • Bunion surgery to restore normal joint placement and function

  • Hammer toe surgery to reposition and”reform” the toe into a more natural position for better function and comfort

  • Neuroma surgery to address nerve-related problems that can occur in the ball of your foot

  • Heel surgery for plantar fasciitis, heel bursitis, heel spur or other conditions that do not respond to more conservative management

  • Reconstructive surgery following amputation or trauma, or to treat disfigurement or deformity.
