The need for foot surgery is a decision made with you and your podiatrist after an evaluation. You should meet the following 2 criteria if you are considering proceeding with surgery.
- Pain is present and it is limiting your ability to do the things you like, love or have to do.
- You have tried and failed some conservative options.
If you have not met both of these criteria you should be evaluated by a podiatrist to discuss further options.
