Grindstaff, Brewer take comeback trail to become All-AmericansEast Tennessee State junior Christian Brewer is an avid competitive runner. Unfortunately, during his last year in high school Brewer sustained a broken femur bone. Brewer struggled to recover from his injury, even doubting himself because of the intense pain from his workouts. But he was determined. Brewer entered the 2014 NAIA indoor nationals tournament, and finished seventh in his division, close to his school’s top runner in terms of time. Brewer is majoring in sports management and wants to continue to be involved in track and field after graduation.  

Foot surgery may aid you in recovering from a foot or ankle injury. If you are contending with a podiatric injury or condition, see podiatrist Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey. Dr. Conforti can determine whether surgery fits your needs or not.  

When Is Surgery Necessary?

Foot and ankle surgery is generally reserved for cases in which less invasive, conservative procedures have failed to help with the problem. Some of the cases in which surgery may be necessary are:

- Removing foot deformities like bone spurs and bunions
- Severe arthritis that has caused bone issues
- Reconstruction to attend injuries caused by accidents or malformations

What Types of Surgery Are There?

The type of surgery you receive will be dependent on the nature of the problem you have. Some of the possible surgeries include:

- Bunionectomy for painful bunions
- Surgical fusion for realignment of bones
- Nerve removal for painful nerve endings

Benefits of Surgery

Although surgery is usually a last resort, when it is undertaken, if can provide more complete pain relief than before, and may allow you to finally resume full activity.

Surgical techniques have also become increasingly sophisticated. Such techniques like endoscopic surgery allow for smaller incisions and faster recovery times.
