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?

Infection?: Any surgery can result in an infection. However, infection 8 months later is rare. Blood work and special bone scans would be needed to make sure if you have an infection or not. Complex regional pain syndrome is very serious and would need professional treatments including physical therapy and medications. Post-op Kidner procedures could benefit from custom orthotics and MLS Laser treatments. ...Read more
