Foot & Ankle Surgery

Our Award-Winning Physicians Are Well Trained and Highly Skilled Surgeons Specializing in Foot and Ankle Surgery

Foot and ankle surgery is rarely an easy decision. Ideally, any pain or problem you may be having could be resolved through less invasive means, whether simple rest or one of our more advanced alternatives (like amniotic therapy or laser treatment).

However, sometimes a surgical procedure is absolutely necessary to eliminate your problem and get you back to living a life free from discomfort, worry, and restriction. If that happens, you need absolute confidence that your surgeon has the training, skill, and experience to accurately assess, plan, and perform the procedure.

That’s what we offer at Waco Foot & Ankle. Our board-certified specialists have dedicated their careers exclusively to care for the feet and ankles. We’ve performed thousands of surgeries and mastered a comprehensive range of procedures, from rearfoot, forefoot, and ankle reconstruction and arthroscopy to limb salvage, joint replacement, tendon repair, and more.


Developing a Comprehensive Plan of Action

There are more than 14 billion feet walking the planet today, and no two are exactly alike. Add bunions, flat feet, hammertoes, or other complex and painful deformities and conditions to the mix, and it’s clear that there are no “copy and paste” surgical solutions for feet and ankles.

Because our doctors are experienced in such a wide range of surgical procedures, we’re able to develop comprehensive treatment plans that are personalized to each individual. We’ll carefully examine your injury or deformity, evaluate your surgical options, and present you with one or more potential procedures that we believe would offer you the best outcome.

We work hard to ensure you are fully and thoroughly educated on the particulars of your condition and surgery, and are supported with the resources, knowledge, and instruction you need to manage your care before, during, and long after your surgical procedure is complete.

Our Approach to Bunion Surgery

Struggling with problematic bunions that are causing your pain and discomfort? Our team of bunion specialists is prepared to help! We approach bunion surgery from a unique perspective to make your recovery time as quick as possible. There are many surgical techniques for bunion correction. The appropriate bunion procedure is dependent on many different factors, which your surgeon will consider prior to recommending surgery. While Lapiplasty is a great procedure, there are conditions where traditional procedures are more appropriate. Rest assured that your surgeon will discuss all options with you and recommend the best procedure based on your specific condition. The Lapiplasty® 3D bunion correction is the latest advancement in bunion correction surgery.

How Does Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction work?

Lapiplasty uses advanced instrumentation to correct the bunion problem at the source and achieve excellent results. Lapiplasty can correct the entire bone in 3D and secure the unstable foundation to get you back on your feet quickly in a walking boot. The Lapiplasty procedure has also shown low recurrence; 97% and 99% maintain 3D correction in 13 and 17 months respectively.
