Why a Revision Surgery May Be Necessary
There are several reasons why you may need to have revision foot or ankle surgery.
One common reason is if you develop an infection after your original surgery. Infections can occur for a variety of reasons, such as improper post-op care, a new injury to the site, and improper handling of the wound.
Another reason you may need revision surgery is if you develop problems with the artificial joint or other implants that were used in your original surgery. For example, the joint may come loose or wear out over time. In some cases, the bone around the implant may begin to break down (osteolysis).
Finally, you may simply need additional surgery to correct problems not fully resolved with your first surgery. This is often the case with complex surgeries, such as those involving multiple bones or joints.
Second Opinions on Foot & Ankle Issues
There are a few different scenarios in which seeing a second doctor for your foot or ankle pain is a good idea. First, if you've seen a doctor and haven't been given a clear diagnosis, it's worth getting another opinion. This is especially true if your pain is severe or getting worse.
Another scenario where a second opinion is a good idea is if you're considering surgery. Surgery is a big decision, and you want to be sure that it's absolutely necessary before moving forward. Getting a second opinion can give you peace of mind and help you make the best decision for your health.
Finally, if you've been treated for a foot or ankle problem but your pain persists, it's worth seeing another doctor. This is especially true if you've tried everything else and nothing has worked. Sometimes, all it takes is a fresh perspective to finally get relief.
If you're experiencing persistent foot or ankle pain, our foot and ankle surgeons can help. Additionally, if you're unsure whether your pain warrants further medical attention, getting a second opinion is always a good idea. With proper diagnosis and treatment at the Foot & Ankle Institute of New England, you can find the relief you’re looking for and get back to enjoying your life.
