As with any type of surgical procedure,Preoperative testing and care is very important to  those undergoing foot and ankle surgery require specific tests or examinations before surgery to improve a successful surgical outcome. Prior to surgery, we will review your medical history and medical conditions. Specific diseases, illnesses, allergies, and current medications need to be evaluated. Other tests that help evaluate your health status may be ordered, such as blood studies, urinalysis, EKG, X-rays, a blood flow study (to better evaluate the circulation of the foot and legs), and an examination of the structures of your feet while walking. A consultation with another medical specialist may be advised by a podiatrist, depending on your test results or a specific medical condition.  Sometimes further testing or imaging such as an MRI or CT scan will be required for surgical planning.
