Revisional Surgery
Foot and ankle surgery is performed when injuries or conditions are severe and conservative treatment methods are inadequate. It may involve repairing, realigning, or reconstructing structures in the foot and ankle. The procedure is safe and outcomes are generally good, but occasionally failure may occur due to various reasons. Revision foot and ankle surgery is recommended to correct problems and to improve results.
The foot and ankle are complex structures that are involved in movement and provide stability and balance to the body. They consist of 26 bones, 33 joints, and several tendons, muscles, and ligaments. The foot is usually differentiated into 3 parts; the forefoot (5 toes) that forms the front of the foot, the midfoot (5 bones) that forms the arch of the foot, and the hindfoot that comprises the heel and ankle. The ankle is made up of 3 bones: the tibia, fibula, and talus. Ligaments and tendons provide flexibility to the foot enabling a wide range of movements.

Revision foot and ankle surgery is indicated when there are complications following initial surgery including persistent pain and disability, deformity, or need for additional stability.

If possible, revision foot and ankle surgery may be carried out using a minimally invasive arthroscopic technique. During the procedure, your foot and ankle surgeon may repair, realign, or reposition bones, tendons, and ligaments. The procedure may involve the removal of a damaged implant or a painful internal fixation device. A new fixation device may be placed to improve stability. Revision surgery is usually more complicated than the initial procedure and takes longer to complete.
Recovery depends on the procedure performed and usually takes the same time as the initial procedure. Your doctor will restrict weight-bearing and you may need to use crutches for a few weeks. You may need to wear a brace or a boot. Keep your dressing dry and clean. Elevate the foot above heart level to help reduce swelling. You will be advised to follow a healthy diet and to avoid smoking which can delay healing.
