A 28-year-old female asked:
I have mitek suture anchor in foot (navicular area) placed in after surgery 8 months ago. Could it be causing my bad foot pain? Podiatrist said no.

Maybe: The anchor, if placed properly, should be contained within the navicular bone. Therefore, in a sense your podiatrist may be right. The bigger question is your posterior tibial tendon repair holding up? Maybe the pain is from something else associated with the surgery. May need an MRI to reevaluate.
