Toe Conditions: Failed Toe Surgery Revision

UFAI patient Diane talks about her Bunion Revision Surgery to correct a poor outcome with another surgeon.
.

Unfortunately, not all toe surgeries result in a painless, nicely aligned toe. There are many reasons for a toe surgery to fail, including new structural problems, stiffness of the joints and lingering pain.

 

Repairing a bad surgery requires a great doctor-patient relationship and careful consideration to appropriately correct the procedure.

 

Fortunately, University Foot and Ankle Institute is one of the largest and most technologically advanced providers of foot and ankle care in the country.

 

The team specializes in revision surgery with state-of-the-art care in the most friendly, professional, and comfortable environment.

What Can Be Done For a Failed Toe Surgery?

In some cases bunion surgery (hallux valgus) fails. In fact, re-occurrence of a bunion is so common it is not even considered a surgical complication. Though time can cause the bunion return, it is typically due to a new structural big toe problem, joint stiffness or arthritis of the big toe joint (hallux rigidus).

 

The University Foot and Ankle Institute podiatrists specialize in performing bunion-revision surgery. Prior to any talk of surgery, however, there is thorough diagnostic testing to identify the reason you are experiencing discomfort.

 

If surgery is indicated, our podiatrists discuss your options and treatment plan. The type of surgical procedure depends upon the severity of the bunion, your age, general health, activity level and the condition of the bones and tissue.  The podiatrists at UFAI are experts in evaluating and treating repairs to bunion surgery, call to schedule a consultation today!

 

Failed Hammertoe - University Foot and Ankle Institute

Revision of a Failed Hammertoe Surgery

Regrettably, not all hammertoe surgeries produce a successful outcome with an aligned, painless toe. The good news is that University Foot and Ankle Institute podiatrists can help you decide the best treatment to correct your problem. Keep in mind that revision of hammertoe surgery is one of the most-difficult problems to treat.

 

Often, there has been so much bone removal there is not enough left for any correction of the deformed toes. And in some cases, there is enough bone but the bone cut made is incorrect resulting in poor toe alignment.

 

Fortunately, most cases of hammertoe deformity can be corrected with proper treatment. Corrections are performed with the use of special pins and possible bone graft to correct the length and alignment of the toes.

 

UFAI podiatrists have performed extensive research and perfected many hammertoe surgery techniques in the correction of hammertoe-failed surgery. Our doctors, surgeons and physical therapists are the very best hammertoe treatment specialists in California.

 

Failed Fusion Surgery Repair

Although it is rare for a fusion surgery to need revision, there are several causes of fusion failure. These include poor fixation, lack of proper bone and cartilage removal from the joint, infection and overall poor healing.

 

Our podiatrists have extensive knowledge of revision procedures for great toe problems including conservative orthotic and shoe modifications, revision osteotomy, fusion procedures and implant replacement options.  Call and schedule a consultation today.
