If a patient in White Plains has a bunion, Dr. Peters, a White Plains, NY foot doctor, offers various treatment options to provide relief. However, surgery is sometimes the best option for providing relief for a patient with a bunion in White Plains. Bunions are progressive bone deformities of the foot that often cause recurring or chronic inflammation, irritation, and pain that require surgical correction. Surgical removal of a bunion is called a bunionechtomy in which there are multiple types that are designed to resolve different structural changes that are cause by the deformity.
Surgery can also be used to correct a serious deformity of the ankle and its bone structure. Injury, birth defects, or changes throughout the course of life are the usual culprits. Diseases, such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and neuromuscular conditions, may cause severe foot and ankle deformities that, over time, cause pain and difficulty walking. Dr. Peters will properly diagnose a patient's deformity in order to determine the best treatment option.
Ankle surgeries emphasize the realignment of the structure either around or after removal of the deformity. To maintain the appropriate alignment during, and beyond, the healing process, Dr. Peters will utilize various kinds of internal and external fixation devices. Surgery of the ankle will vary in complexity, length, and severity, yet many of them today are conducted on a same-day, outpatient basis.
