Times You May Need Foot Surgery

Foot surgery performed by Dr. Eric Peters in his White Plains podiatric practice takes accurate diagnostics, sharp hands-on skills and a compassionate heart.

Why choose surgery?

Obviously, it's not the first choice if other treatments can improve function and mobility and provide pain relief. Your White Plains podiatrist uses surgery to manage or repair more complex problems and provide healing which really lasts. You and your doctor will consider your overall health, age, level of activity, and other important factors before proceeding with any surgery.

As a podiatric surgical patient, you'll receive a complete treatment plan. You'll know how to prepare, if your surgery is outpatient or in the hospital, what anesthetic, post-op medications, and supportive devices you'll need and what results to expect. Many surgeries limit mobility for a time, and Dr. Peters will explain your rehabilitation before your procedure date.
