Many of our patients seek our help in the treatment of various foot and ankle problems. If you’re looking for an ankle surgeon with a treatment approach that revolves around paying attention to all the details of the foot and ankle, not to just the problematic part, then it’s time you visit the office of Dr. Taub for treatment for your ankle fracture in Stuart.
At the office of Joseph C. Taub, we are able to treat a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions, such as structural conditions, trauma-related injuries, skin and nail conditions, congenital deformities, as well as ankle fractures in Stuart. In some cases, we may recommend ankle surgery as the best approach to remedying your condition to help alleviate pain, reduce deformity, and restore function. Most foot and ankle surgeries are day surgeries and you will go home that same day. Proper healing and recovery after your reconstructive surgery is very important. Weight bearing on your foot depends on your procedure. A head procedure allows for immediate weight bearing, but we still feel that it is best to use crutches for 1-2 weeks. Base procedures require crutches for a longer period of time. First week after surgery keep your foot elevated as much as possible. Keep your foot dry for at least 2 weeks after surgery. One week after surgery you will have your dressing change, and the following week your sutures will be removed.
Dr. Taub will advise you when you can increase weight bearing and activities depending on your surgical procedure. Best results are achieved when patients are compliant with after-surgery instructions. By combining the medical, mechanical, and surgical treatment of foot and ankle conditions, our office is able to provide treatment for the most challenging of problems, especially ankle fractures in Stuart. Please call our office to discuss if ankle surgery is the best option for you, and let our podiatrist get you back on your feet.
