WHAT IS IT

Revisional foot and ankle surgery is performed for those who have already had surgery performed.

Conditions for performing revisional surgery can include:

  • Removal of hardware of previously installed pins, plates, and/or screws became loosened or broken
  • Soft tissue reactions from foreign bodies such as sutures
  • Bone cysts occur
  • Broken implants
  • Malunion or nonunion
  • Swelling that does not subside
  • Arthritis including post traumatic arthritis
  • Complications that occur after surgery

WE TREAT

Planning for revisional foot and ankle surgery involves obtaining records, figuring out why satisfactory results were not achieved from prior surgeries, and determining what the patient would most benefit from.

We will perform a thorough clinical examination followed by appropriate radiographic imaging. Both are done to evaluate the severity, the presence of arthritis, and soft tissue contractures. We will then discuss a customized plan of care involving appropriate treatments. We may order laboratory tests or advanced imaging to assess for possible infection.
