Novant Health Thomasville Medical Center provides rare, comprehensive foot and ankle surgery
to area residents that can restore form-and-function to feet and ankles. This revolutionary
surgery is usually performed to treat recurrent ulcerations, provide stability,
or relieve chronic pain.
Surgery enables people with
foot abnormalities and wounds to no longer face certain amputation. In some patients, surgical reconstruction may be the only alternative to a below-
or above-the-knee amputation. The unique surgery realigns bones and remove prominences.
The patient and his/her family require extensive preoperative consultation to fully understand
the potential benefits, risks, and the lengthy postoperative course.
Advanced stages of diabetes sometimes causes nerve damage preventing the diabetic
from having feeling in the legs or feet, which can accompany a problem with a foot
or ankle. The over-80,000 amputations of toes, feet and lower legs that diabetics undergo
each year are often preventable. The patient is properly diagnosed in a timely fashion
and an appropriate treatment plan implemented to enable the patient to return to
a healthy lifestyle.
