What is Flat Foot Reconstruction Surgery?

Flat-foot reconstruction is a surgery that uses multiple different procedures to correct a foot with a fallen arch. Procedures can use tendons, ligaments, and bones to correct this deformity. The goal of this surgery is to restore the arch to improve pain and align the foot in a better functional position.

Am I a candidate for Flat Foot Reconstructive Surgery?

Patients who have failed conservative or non-operative treatment measures such as orthotics, bracing, physical therapy, or immobilization, can be potential candidates for this surgery. It is important to follow up with your foot doctor so they can do a thorough clinical examination of your feet in order to determine if you are a candidate for these surgical procedures. Recovery time is dependent on each case, however, it can be expected for the patient to return to their normal function about three months after surgery. Patients are usually nonweightbearing to their feet for 6-8 weeks after surgery, then transition to full weightbearing around weeks 10-12.
