It’s that time of year again – the Troy Pig Out is right around the corner! Head to this annual BBQ competition and try the ribs, try the brisket, try the chicken – you can even try to win a hot dog eating contest! Even if you’re not a big fan of BBQ, you might just find something you like – you never know until you try, right? Well, if you’ve tried every conservative treatment method under the sun to ease your foot pain, but still haven’t found the relief you’re looking for, don’t give up! There’s one more thing you can try, and that’s surgery.
When non-surgical treatments have been exhausted and none have proven successful in easing your pain, that is a sign that it’s time to consider a surgical procedure. We know most people are even more apprehensive about surgery then they are about trying new foods, but if the choice is living with chronic pain and an inability to enjoy the things you love — like the Troy Pig Out fireworks for instance — well, that makes the decision a little easier. You can also find peace of mind knowing the doctor performing the surgery is highly skilled and experienced, like the doctors at Capital District Podiatry. Whether it’s a procedure to correct a toe deformity like a bunion or hammertoe, help with a nerve condition, or ending an ongoing problem with ingrown toenails, we can expertly perform a surgical procedure to get you back on your feet before you know it.
Of course, every situation is different and many elements factor into the decision to have surgery. We will assess your feet, discuss all options with you thoroughly, make sure you know what to expect, answer your questions, and calm any concerns. Recommendations will be made based on your lifestyle, age, the severity of your condition, and whether you’ve tried all non-surgical methods available to you. We want you to feel comfortable and confident with your decision – unlike that unfortunate choice you made to ride the mechanical bull at last year’s Pig Out!
