Reconstructive foot surgery and ankle surgery consists of surgical repair that may be necessary to regain function or stability, reduce pain, and/or prevent further deformity or disease.

The vast majority of foot and ankle conditions do not require surgical intervention. Surgery is considered to be a last option when more conservative treatments (such as physical therapy or orthotics) fail to alleviate symptoms. Conditions such as trauma, congenital defects, bunions, and hammer toes may necessitate surgery of the foot and ankle.
Foot and ankle surgery can involve repairing tendons, replacing joints, removing tumors, and cutting, grafting, and fusing bone. Reconstructive foot surgery and ankle surgery is complex and can involve internal and external fixation devices such as pins, staples, screws, and wires as well as casts to ensure proper recovery.
