Postoperative Care

September 13, 2017 by Dr. Tammy Gephart0

The type of foot surgery performed determines the length and kind of after-care required to assure that your recovery from surgery is uneventful. The basics of all postoperative care involve to some degree each of the following: rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Bandages, splints, surgical shoes, casts, knee walkers, crutches, or canes may be necessary to improve and ensure a safe recovery after foot surgery. It will also determine, if and when, you can bear weight on your foot after the operation. We want you to have a satisfactory and speedy recovery, and this outcome can be achieved by carefully following the postoperative instructions that you have discussed prior to and immediately after surgery. It is extremely important that you understand the amount of follow up you will need after surgery and keep your follow up appointments.
