  • WHY YOU SHOULD AVOID FOOT SURGERY, DOWNTOWN TORONTO FOOT CLINIC EXPLAINS WHY

 

 

AT OUR TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WE PRACTICE CONSERVATIVE MEDICINE WHERE WE AVOID FOOT SURGERY AND MEDICATIONS WHENEVER POSSIBLE.  

THERE ARE VERY FEW CASES THAT REQUIRE SURGERY.  THE MAJORITY OF PODIATRISTS, CHIROPODISTS AND FOOT DOCTORS' PATIENTS ARE FEMALE AND THE MAJORITY OF PATIENTS WHO OPT FOR FOOT SURGERY ARE FEMALE AND ARE MOSTLY DONE FOR COSMETIC REASONS.  THE MAJORITY OF PLASTIC SURGEONS' PATIENTS ARE FEMALE AND AGAIN MOST OF THESE SURGERIES ARE DONE FOR COSMETIC REASONS ONLY.

THE NUMBER ONE RULE FOR AVOIDING FOOT SURGERY IS IF IT DOES NOT HURT, DON'T EVEN CONSIDER IT.  MANY TIMES A PERSON DECIDES TO HAVE SURGERY ON A FOOT THAT IS ASYMPTOMATIC TO CORRECT A COSMETIC DEFICIENCY AND THEN ENDS UP WITH A LIFETIME OF PAIN.  

NEVER, EVER CHOOSE SURGERY WHEN THERE IS NO PAIN IN THE INVOLVED JOINT.

REMEMBER IT IS HOW YOU FEEL, NOT HOW YOU LOOK.

IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING SURGERY FOR A PAINFUL JOINT ALWAYS EXHAUST ALL MEANS OF CONSERVATIVE TREATMENT FIRST.  LOOK AT YOUR FOOT WEAR, GO FOR PHYSICAL THERAPY AND INVEST IN CUSTOM ORTHOTICS. IN MOST CASES YOU WILL END UP MUCH BETTER OFF.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES COMPETENT, HONEST ADVICE, FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.

REMEMBER, WE ALWAY TREAT OUR BELOVED PATIENTS LIKE FAMILY!
