Foot Surgery India

Foot, an important part of the body that is responsible enough to keep us on our toes through out the day, needs good care as well as good pampering. It is one of the most complex parts of the human anatomy since it consists of 38 bones connected by tendons, ligaments, muscles and many joints. Since its keeps our body weight it is prone to many stresses. Injury, inflammation and pain are the common ailments of the foot. Often complicated problems in the foot need correction through surgery.

Foot Surgery
Often foot problems arise through improper fitting of shoes. Foot problems often effect the heels, tendons and ligaments, nerves and joints and the toes.

Heel Spurs

A bone growth in the heel area is a heel spur. The Plantar fascia is a long band of tissue connecting the heel to the ball of the foot. When the plantar fascia is over stretched, spur develops. The connecting tissues hold the heel and the ball of the foot and act as a shock absorber during activity. When overstretched it causes pain and inflammation.

Treatment of the spurs:
Rest and wearing good foot wear
Sometimes, steroid injections to relieve inflammation

Foot Corn
Corns are yellowish growths on the toes due to foot stress and abuse. Often ill-fitting shoes and the rubbing of the toe with another cause corns. They are extremely painful and cause discomfort.

Treatment of the Corn:
Wearing comfortable shoes
applying pads around the area

A jutting of a tissue or bone around a joint is a bunion. It occurs generally at the base of a big toe or the little toe. It is more common among women as they wear more confining and pointed shoes. Arthritis also causes bunions, which affects the big toe joint.

Treatment of the Bunion:
Wearing comfortable shoes
applying pads around the area

Morton's neuroma
When there is a growth of tissues in the nerves that connect the two long bones of the foot, morton neuroma occurs. Generally when the two bones rub together and squeeze the nerve between them it gives rise to pain and swelling and leads to Morton's neuroma. Treatment involves rest, proper footwear and in extreme cases cortisone injections and surgery is recommended.

Wearing tight and ill-fitting shoes can often protrude the middle joint of the toe or buckle the toe. Corns often develop in the affected area. Treatment of hammertoes includes new footwear for deformed feet, applying toe pads on the bony protrusion or surgical removal.

Ankle Sprain
Ligaments connect bones to each other and they are strong bands of elastic tissues. When the ligaments are stretched or torn ankle sprain occur. It causes swelling and pain. On severe cases surgery is recommended.

Foot Fracture
Toe fractures, ankle joint fractures, metatarsal fractures and sesamoid bone fractures are the different types of foot fractures that can occur.

Foot Pain
Foot pain can be severe affecting your activity to a great extent. Pain in the ball of the foot is very common as well as the plantar fasciitis when pain shoots in the heel. Over weight people, people with flat feet or high arches are prone to plantar fasciitis.

Achilles Tendon Injury
The largest tendon of the body which gets ruptured due to over use often cause Achilles Heel. Overusing tendons and calf muscles causes the tendonitis. Treatment includes non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory medications and often surgery.
