Do You Need Surgery for Foot and Ankle Pain?

While some injuries clearly require immediate surgical intervention, most podiatrists and orthopedic surgeons only recommend surgery after less invasive treatments — like rest, medication, and physical therapy — have not produced the desired results.

We recommend seeing your doctor if you have persistent foot and ankle pain, or any of the following symptoms:

  • Pain that lasts longer than two weeks
  • Swelling, tenderness, obvious deformity, or color changes to the skin or toenails
  • Inability to stand or walk without pain
  • Pain that persists even without putting any weight on the limb
  • Stiffness or limited range of motion

Any of these symptoms could be a sign of a serious condition that requires treatment — potentially even surgery.
