Our Gaithersburg, MD Board Certified Podiatric Physician & Surgeon Can Help You
FOOT & ANKLE SURGERY
OUR SURGEON, DR. STUART SNYDER, SPECIALIZES IN COMPLETE AND COMPASSIONATE CARE OF ALL OF YOUR FOOT AND ANKLE CONDITIONS.
At our practice, Maple Springs Foot Center,, we always look for conservative means of alleviating foot and ankle problems. However, there are circumstances when conservative treatment alone will not produce the desired outcomes and surgical intervention may be necessary.
Once surgical intervention has been determined to be a viable course of action, we work closely with our patients to keep them informed from the point of evaluation, pre-op, the surgical procedure itself and the post-operative course of care. Minor procedures can be performed under local anesthesia in our office. More complex surgeries such as reconstructive foot surgeries are done in the hospital with mild sedation and local anesthesia.
- All surgical treatments for ingrown toenails, minor foot infections, warts, moles, and cysts are performed as a minor office procedure under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Most patients can resume their normal activities the very next day.
- Surgery for bunions, hammertoes, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, etc. are performed at Maple Springs Ambulatory Surgical Center or Shady Grove Adventist Hospital and are performed either under IV sedation and/or local anesthesia. Most procedures are performed on an outpatient basis.
It is always our objective to get our patients back to work quickly, back to the recreational activities they love and to restore the quality of life that they deserve.
