A member asked:

I am having an osteotomy of my 2nd and 3rd metatarsal on my right foot. how complex is this surgery?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

It depends: If your underlying health is poor, any invasive surgery can increase systemic stresses. This procedure is typically not a major event for most people. Listen to your surgeon regarding pre and post surgery care. Watch for infection or trauma to healing tissue and you should do well.
