Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Surgery
Reconstructive foot and ankle surgery is commonly used to treat a variety of deformities and conditions that affect the foot and ankle. It is usually recommended only if more conservative treatments fail or are not a viable option.
Surgery of the foot and ankle can greatly restore and improve function, mobility and stability. Although reconstructive surgical procedures can be complex, and can involve repairing or transferring tendons, implanting joints, removing tumors, and cutting, grafting, and/or fusing bone, Dr. Mauriello treats his craft as an art and is trained in the latest foot and ankle procedures.
Surgery may be necessary to treat conditions caused by:
- Improper footwear
