foot surgeryJake Locker of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans underwent foot surgery, which means he is out for the rest of the season. Although he’s off the field, Locker’s recovery process is far from simply resting. For the first time, Locker hosted his first event known as the Titans and T-Bone fundraiser for his new charity The Pass it On foundation.

Because he’s very busy and has something to focus towards, Locker remains optimistic about his recovery process. “I’m looking forward to getting it fixed and starting the healing process,” Locker said. “I feel confident I’ll come back stronger than I was and I’ll have no side effects from this injury.”

Foot surgery is a serious proposition that should only be done after a medical consultation. If you are thinking about surgery to fix your foot injury, visit a podiatrist like Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Dr. Stein canassess your condition and walk you through all the corrective options available to you.

When Is Surgery Necessary?

Foot and ankle surgery is generally reserved for cases in which less invasive, conservative procedures have failed to help with the problem. Some of the cases in which surgery may be necessary are:

- Removing foot deformities like bone spurs and bunions
- Severe arthritis that has caused bone issues
- Reconstruction to attend injuries caused by accidents or malformations

What Types of Surgery Are There?

The type of surgery you receive will be dependent on the nature of the problem you have. Some of the possible surgeries include:

- Bunionectomy for painful bunions
- Surgical fusion for realignment of bones
- Nerve removal for painful nerve endings

Benefits of Surgery

Although surgery is usually a last resort, when it is undertaken, if can provide more complete pain relief than before, and may allow you to finally resume full activity.

Surgical techniques have also become increasingly sophisticated. Such techniques like endoscopic surgery allow for smaller incisions and faster recovery times.
