Reconstructive ankle surgery and foot surgery consists of surgical repair that may be necessary to regain function or stability, reduce pain, and/or prevent further deformity or disease.

Most foot and ankle conditions do not require surgical intervention. Surgery is considered to be a last option when more conservative treatments such as orthotics or physical therapy do not yield results. Conditions such as congenital defects, trauma, bunions, and hammer toes may require surgery of the foot and ankle.
Foot and ankle surgery can involve replacing joints, repairing tendons, removing tumors, and cutting, grafting, and fusing bone. Reconstructive foot surgery and ankle surgery is complex and can involve internal and external fixation devices such as pins, staples, screws, and wires as well as casts to ensure proper recovery.
