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?

Probably not. The simple answer is yes, a bone anchor can be removed, but the real answer is that the bone anchor was placed there for a reason (probably to hold a ligament or tendon in place), so unless the injured structure has healed, you wouldn't want to remove the anchor. Infection must always be considered as a possible cause of pain long after surgery, or failure of the repair - do go see your surgeon. Read more...
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...

I have two screws in the navicular bone of my foot. I feel likethey are irritating my ankle bone or possibly my talus. I am 4 months post surgery. What should I do?

Remove them. If the screws were placed to do a talo-navicular fusion or to fixate a fractured navicular, you need to follow up with the surgeon, have x-rays and if the bone has consolidated and healed, or the joint has fused, you can have the screws removed. This is done through small incisions and the recovery is not as long as the initial surgery. Read more...
