Criteria / guidelines for referring neuropathy foot patients to vascular surgery?

Criteria / guidelines for referring neuropathy foot patients to vascular surgery?

Signs of PAD/PVD: A diagnosis of neuropathy is not an absolute indication of a need for referral to a vascular surgeon. That referral would be based on objective findings and subjective complaints that could suggest the patient is also suffering from peripheral vascular disease or peripheral arterial disease. There are times when a patient with neuropathy may need a neurology referral to control their symptoms. ...Read more

Went to orthopaedic doctor for ankle pain that often 9/10from injury 5 yrs ago. He said its soft tissue damage and take Motrin for it-no help. Surgery?

Need more: If your pain is in the 9-10 at times, 5 years after an ankle injury, you likely need a more specific diagnosis than "soft tissue damage". If you have nay had further studies such as an MRI and/or a ct scan these studies can often give much more information about the cause of your problem than a simple X-ray. Don't hesitate to seek a second opinion. ...Read more

I had left foot surgery 8 months ago (navicular area). My foot has been hurting a lot also causing ankle pain. Can the mitek bone anchor be removed?

I had left foot surgery 8 months ago (navicular area). My foot has been hurting a lot also causing ankle pain. Can the mitek bone anchor be removed?

It would be: Difficult to remove but it can be removed. I would question whether or not its the actual anchor that is hurting. Usually a tendon is tacked down when using the anchor and perhaps the tendon is tied down to tight or something like that. In cases like this always ask the doc why he thinks you still have pain and what your options are. ...Read more

Surgeon follow up: Even with the great advances in medicine, there is still no such thing as a risk free surgery. Every surgery runs the risk of developing complications. Pain and burning may be normal in the immediate post operative period. Close follow up with his surgeon is encouraged to ensure these symptoms are normal and not the result of unwanted complications. ...Read more

Surgery? Should this be properly aligned. Broken fibula 2 places! Broken fibula, mid lower section top break, still in alignment but fracture. Lower break separated and off to the side not in alignment but. Back of heal and ankle burning. I have a splint

Surgery? Should this be properly aligned. Broken fibula 2 places! Broken fibula, mid lower section top break, still in alignment but fracture. Lower break separated and off to the side not in alignment but. Back of heal and ankle burning. I have a splint

Without: Without seeing the images, it is difficult to know how much of the fibula is broken and how displaced it really is. The symptoms you're having sound like part of the peroneal nerve is irritated--either from swelling or from the fracture. Most of these injuries are stretch or bruising injuries, called neurapraxias, that resolve with time, usually about 3 months. Occasionally, a nerve can be severed, but usually there is muscle weakness to show the more severe injury.

In principle, fractures of the fibular shaft are left to heal without surgery. We can remove a large portion of the fibula as bone graft without significant adverse effects, so we know the mid-portion of the fibula does not provide structural stability. The closer to the knee, however, the more likely to affect the common peroneal nerve and the closer to the ankle, the more likely the fracture will affect ankle stability.

There are key ligaments that stabilize the ankle in the area known as the syndesmosis. These ligaments can take longer to heal than a fracture or lower ankle injury.

Talk to your treating physician about the location of the fractures relative to the important structures. ...Read more
