Bunion Surgery – Surgical removal of bunions (bony lumps found on the joint of the big toe) and realignment of the big toe joint.

Surgery for Arthritis in the Big Toe Joint - Patients suffering from arthritis of the big toe experience pain and stiffness. This may become so severe that a surgical procedure is necessary to help alleviate the pain. This can involve decompression of the joint, cleaning out of the joint, or an implant replacement.

Hammertoe Surgeries - Several surgical procedures are available to treat rigid hammertoes and restore the normal alignment of the toe joint and relieve pain.

Soft Tissue Surgeries - These include removal of neuromas, removal of soft tissue tumors and masses, or removal of skin lesions.

Cheilectomy/Exostectomy – This surgery is used to remove bone spurs from various parts of the foot.

Instep Plantar Fascial Release - This surgery is used as a last resort for people with chronic unresponsive plantar fasciitis/heel spur syndrome.

Tailor’s Bunion Surgery – Surgery to remove a baby bunion near the small toe.

Surgery for Ingrown Toenails – This is a minimally invasive surgery to permanently remove the symptomatic in-growing portion of the nail. This is done for infected and/or painful ingrown toenails.

Broken Bones – Surgery can be performed to fix broken bones in the foot and ankle.
