Foot Surgery Overview
Specialist Podiatric Surgeon Dr Buckley offers foot surgery options for a large range of conditions.
Importantly, Dr Buckley employs a careful, modern and ‘podiatric’ approach to his surgical treatments. This ensures that each patient is cared for in the most appropriate way.
The links below provide an overview of the conditions that may be surgically treated:
Surgery for Forefoot Conditions
- Hallux Valgus (bunions)
- Hammertoes & clawtoes
- Hallux Rigidus (arthritic big toe joint)
- Ingrown Toenails
- Morton’s Neuroma
- Tailor’s bunion
- Subungal Exostosis
- Corns & Calluses
Surgery For Mid Foot Conditions
- Lumps and bumps
Surgery for Rear Foot Conditions
- Revisional Surgery
- Skin lesions
In most instances, Dr Buckley is able to perform foot surgery as a day procedure and patients are often allowed to walk on their foot in a limited way straight after the surgery. Recovery times are dependent on the specific condition and procedure. However, in many cases, patients can expect to be back doing moderate routine daily activities within a few weeks of surgery.
Additionally, Dr Buckley likes to follow up and monitor each of his patients personally for several weeks to months after surgery to ensure optimum and satisfactory outcomes are achieved.
