Ankle Surgery

After you go through an ankle surgery with a podiatrist here are some thing you can expect to do when you are Post-op.

  • Keep your foot elevated after the surgery for almost all of the day for around 3 days depending on surgery.
  • Always keep your dressings and splint clean and dry.
  • Move your ankle around periodically to reduce swelling and improve healing.
  • After the incision is healed Physical Therapy can begin if that has been instructed by a podiatrist.
  • Around four weeks, depending on surgery and care,  after the surgery you can gradually move to normal activity.
