It can sometimes be difficult to tell if the discomfort that you are feeling in your foot and/or ankle region is from an injury or if you are developing arthritis. When you meet with the professional team at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic, you are going to have a better understanding of what may be going on and how you can treat it. If it looks like you are in need of foot and ankle arthritis surgery in Mercer Island, the team will be able to go over all of your options.
There are a number of non-surgical treatments that you can try to see if you are able to get some sort of relief. However, these are sometimes just temporary fixes that will call for invasive therapy further down the road. Some of the options that we will try first will include braces, orthotics, steroid injections, physical therapy and oral medications or immobilization. We can promise you that we will only look to surgery when we have exhausted all other possibilities for treatment.
Because the goal is to get you back into your daily activities free of pain, our team of professionals will be right by your side to talk you through the preparations for surgery, the actual surgical process and everything that you can expect during the time that you are recovering. Some patients might be able to resume regular activities in a few weeks, while others with more involved issues could see a month or longer of down time.
