Five people suffered several injuries during a police chase in Sacramento California on July 4th. A police officer tried pulling over a Chevy Camaro for speeding. The car came to a stop but then took off again at 120 mph. The Camaro quickly turned sideways, unfortunately an elderly woman who was in the car suffered a broken foot and needed surgery.

These injuries can be avoided by being careful and making sure to seek medical attention in case you do injure your foot.  Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay is accustomed to helping people with all types of foot injuries.
 

Foot Surgery

Foot surgery is necessary in events where regular therapy is shown to be ineffective. Surgeons often use foot surgery as a last option because of its invasive nature. In most cases, physical therapy, medication, rest, exercise, and casts can help to heal a foot injury.

However, sometimes you might need to have surgery done without ever having an injury. Foot surgery can be used to correct a birth defect or deformity or be used for reconstructive purposes. Foot surgery is designed to improve the quality of your feet and to help you get back on track with your life.

In extreme cases where the foot cannot be saved, or is beyond repair and is hindering the health of nearby parts of the body, amputation may be necessary. Again, this is the last option a surgeon would choose; the main goal would be to save the foot.

As technology becomes increasingly better, podiatric surgery yields better results and many surgeries contain procedures that are less invasive, but still allow for successful surgeries.

If you have any questions about foot surgery, please feel free to contact our offices in San Leandro, Pleasanton, or Los Gatos, California. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot concerns.
