Deciding to have foot surgery is a big step. For her patients considering
any type of foot surgery, Dr. Johansson recommends that the patient makes a list of any questions they might have regarding
the surgery itself or the post-op course. She will answer these questions in the office or via email, so the patient
will have a full understanding of what to expect and what will happen before, during, and after. This not only helps
the patient in the decision-making process, but also makes the whole experience seem less daunting.
Common types of foot surgery include bunion removal, hammer toe repair, removal of
cysts and other soft tissue masses, and surgery to repair traumatic injuries.
