Orthopaedic Procedures followed by Orthopaedic Specialists in New Orleans
Many procedures are performed on an outpatient basis and are followed up with an individualized rehabilitation program. To speed up recovery, arthroscopy of the foot and ankle is performed when possible. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that enables orthopedic surgeons to view and then repair or correct orthopedic problems through only a small incision.
The majority of foot and ankle rehabilitation occurs in an outpatient setting and is focused on rapidly regaining range of motion, strengthening of the foot and ankle, and correcting gait problems. Patients are taught proper exercises for their feet and may be given a custom orthotic (foot support) to enhance recovery and rehabilitation.
