We employ multiple methods to decrease the likelihood of foot surgery or ankle surgery. Often, we can use custom orthotics by a certified shoe fitter to help you pick up the most supportive and comfortable footwear, or we have you wear a simple brace to avoid surgery. Sometimes we use innovative technology. Other times, we will use more traditional treatment options. The bottom line is that surgery is typically our last resort.
