Bone surgery: for patients who require the correction of a range of foot deformities, or who have high levels of foot pain or complications.  All patients referred for consideration of surgery will be seen by a member of the surgery team through the process – including initial assessment, health and physical assessment, the surgery itself and all follow ups.

Foot surgery is performed at the Oaktree Health Centre, Huntingdon. The surgery unit is a consultant-led department providing a range of foot surgery in a designated operating suite. A number of different procedures are performed for the correction of a range of foot deformities, or high levels of foot pain or complications. All patients referred for consideration of surgery will be seen by a member of the surgery team through the process – including initial assessment, health and physical assessment, the surgery itself and all follow ups. 
 
All procedures are performed under local anaesthetic, enabling patients to recover at home in a speedier manner.  However, for your own safety you will need someone to stay with you immediately after surgery. It is expected that patients undergoing foot surgery are off their feet as much as possible over the first 7 days whilst stitches are in and rest as much as possible for the first 2 weeks following surgery. The length of time taken to heal completely will often relate to the amount of activity undertaken in the immediate post-operative period.

As with all surgery there are risks and complications involved with each procedure, but these are discussed at your appointments so that you can make an informed decision.
