Lower Extremity Surgery in Philadelphia, PA

The phrase "lower extremity surgery" refers to procedures performed to treat health issues involving the foot, ankle, or leg. These types of procedures often require a great amount of experience and skill, which is why it's important to work with a surgeon you can trust. At Pennsylvania Surgery and Laser Center, our orthopedic surgeons carry out different types of lower extremity surgeries, including Achilles tendon repair and diabetic foot amputation. Whether you are trying to regain mobility after experiencing a ruptured tendon or require surgical intervention to save your leg, our team is here to lend their skills and compassion. Reach out to our surgery facility in Philadelphia, PA to schedule your consultation, and learn more about our expertise in lower extremity surgery.

When we schedule your surgery, we'll advise you on steps you should take to prepare, which may include cleaning the treatment area with antibacterial soap and pausing any medications that might affect your outcomes. On the day of your surgery, our team will check you in and get you prepped for your procedure. Our approach to lower extremity surgery hinges on which specific surgery is needed, but both procedures begin with sedation to keep you comfortable.

  • During Achilles repair surgery, our team will make an incision around the damaged tendon. The injured tissues will be removed or repaired with sutures and surgical screws. If the damage is extreme, we may perform a tendon transfer using one of the other tendons in the foot. When we're done, the incisions will be closed, and we'll apply a cast to the leg. Afterward, you can expect some tenderness and swelling around the area. It will likely take at least 6 – 12 weeks before you can walk normally again and several months before you can attempt any strenuous activities, such as running or jumping.
  • Before performing a diabetic foot amputation, we'll perform a comprehensive assessment of the affected foot and leg to determine how much will need to be taken. At Pennsylvania Surgery and Laser Center, our team makes every effort to save as much of the leg as possible during foot amputation surgery. During the procedure, we'll remove the affected part of the limb and attach the muscles to the end of the bone. The cut area will be covered with a flap of skin.

Foot and ankle problems don't just affect your health — they can also take away your ability to comfortably participate in the activities you enjoy. Lower extremity surgery at our Philadelphia, PA center can help by providing the following benefits:

  • Restores function and mobility to an injured leg, ankle, or foot
  • May prevent infections from spreading up the leg or throughout your body
  • Alleviates pain in the foot and ankle
