Who Needs it?

Podiatric bone surgery is available as a last resort when conservative care no longer alleviates the symptoms of bony foot deformity. Podiatric bone surgery is a viable option for those unhappy with the appearance of their feet due to some bony pathology.

The correction of bunions and hammertoes are two of the most common bony pathologies of the foot requiring surgical intervention. DPM. Allen Frankel is also experienced in performing a wide range of other foot procedures, including Tailor’s bunion surgery, bone spur reduction, neuroma excision, cyst excision and fibroma excision.

  2. Creating small 3-5mm incisions over the surgical site for the insertion of surgical instruments.

  3. Cutting through bone and soft tissue with the surgical instruments and cutting/realigning structures as needed.

  4. Closing incisions with stitches.
