Types of Treatments
The following are quality podiatric treatments that Alpha Surgical center have to offer:
Bunions are foot deformities involving both bone and soft tissue. For many patients, the condition can cause excruciating pain.
Bunionectomy is the surgical procedure that corrects the deformed area of the foot near the big toe. During the operation, your surgeon will remove the metatarsal head – the part of the foot that is bulging out, and realign your foot bones and joints if necessary to return them to a more normal position.
A hammer toe is when one or more of your toes remain in a curled or flexed position. Severe cases can result in pain and may require surgery.
Our experts will evaluate your case and recommend the best surgical option. To repair the condition, it may be necessary to remove parts of the affected bone and cut or transplant tendons from other toes.
Osteotomy refers to any surgery that involves cutting or reshaping bones. Your podiatric surgeon may recommend the procedure to repair damaged joints as well as shorten or lengthen deformed bones that don’t align with a joint.
Tendons are the tough, stretchy tissue that joins your bones and muscles, allowing your body to move and transfer weight.
When tendons are injured, movement can be significantly limited and cause pain or weakness in the damaged area. When the damage is extensive, tendon repair surgery may be necessary. Surgery involves sowing the torn ends of the tendon together.
The big toe joint is known as the first metatarsophalangeal joint or MTP. Arthritis can cause the joint to become still and painful. When this happens, an MTP joint replacement might be necessary.
The procedure uses a small implant to cover the damaged or missing articular cartilage in the MTP joint, restoring mobility to the joint bones.
