Foot surgery


There are many progressive deformities in the forefoot, which can occur at any age, and sometimes cause pain or discomfort when putting on. The management of these painful foot problems often requires an adaptation of the footwear with sometimes the help of a podiatrist and the wearing of insoles.
If the discomfort persists or worsens, surgical intervention may sometimes be proposed.
In most cases, a medical shoe is prescribed postoperatively to allow a gradual resumption of walking with the dressings and without risk of compromising the surgical procedure performed.

Practical advice

There are many situations and deformities in the foot that can cause pain and difficulty when putting on the shoes.
The adaptation of shoes (flexible and comfortable shoes) and the advice of a podiatrist (sometimes with the installation of soles) remains the first treatment which can provide relief for a very long time or even permanently. Surgical intervention should only be considered in the event of persistent discomfort or worsening pain.
An operated foot remains sensitive and swollen for a long time (about 3 months for normal walking and between 3 and 6 months for sports) which can sometimes delay the resumption of normal shoes and normal walking. Restraint (by cohesive bands or compression socks) is often necessary during the first 3 months to avoid any edema during the day and allow normal footing faster, better walking and resumption of activities (daily, work, sport) in good conditions.
In the event of professional activity with prolonged standing or walking all day, it is prudent to organize the intervention (during a quieter period or with a return to a more sedentary position at the beginning) in order to be able to resume work in good conditions. conditions, without causing pain and avoiding too long sick leave.
