Revisional Foot and Ankle Surgery in Irvine, CA
Our Irvine Podiatrist / Foot and Ankle Surgeon can help you develop a comprehensive plan for revisional foot and ankle surgery in Orange County at our Irvine, CA or Huntington Beach, CA offices.
Unfortunately, even with proper treatment and sound surgical planning and technique, some foot or ankle surgery fails. Occasionally, post-operative complications may occur. It is important that you partner with your Irvine Foot and Ankle Surgeon to minimize the risk of post-surgical complications. While infrequent, some complications that may occur include:
recurrence of deformity
misalignment (mal-union) of the bones
failure of the bones to heal together (non-union)
While many of these post-operative occurrences may be managed and corrected without additional surgery, sometimes revisional foot or ankle surgery is required.
Additionally. sometimes even after a successful surgery, your foot or ankle condition may progress. Some examples of this include:
arthritis in the joint
post-traumatic arthritis following fracture repair
pain in surrounding joints due to degenerative arthritis
changes in foot or ankle positioning.

In addition to X-rays, advanced imaging such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scan may be conducted in order to assist with complete assessment of your recurrent problem and to assist with operative planning.
