Foot & Ankle Surgery Q&A

When do I need foot and ankle surgery?

Most foot and ankle conditions can heal in a reasonable time with conservative treatments, or even in an accelerated time frame with regenerative medicine treatments. But not all foot and ankle damage responds to the initial care.

If you’ve tried the nonsurgical treatments that Dr. Cedeno recommends but your problem isn’t improving, he may recommend foot and ankle surgery for a permanent repair.

What will my recovery be like after foot and ankle surgery?

Dr. Cedeno gives you personalized recovery instructions based on your particular surgical procedure and health. Whether your surgery was simple or highly complicated, it’s important to remember the RICE rules recommended by Dr. Cedeno: rest, ice, compression, and elevation.

You may need a cast, splint, crutches, or another mobility device after your foot and ankle surgery. You’ll see Dr. Cedeno in the week after your surgery and for additional follow-up visits as you recover.

Most foot and ankle surgeries yield fast results, especially when you have a world-class surgeon like Dr. Cedeno taking care of you.
