One of our goals as podiatrists is to ensure our patients receive individual treatment for their unique concerns. Often, this means we do our best to treat patients through conservative care versus immediately recommending surgical intervention.
With some cases, however, foot or ankle surgery is the best course of action to resolve your issue and get you back on your feet as soon as possible!
If the time comes for you to undergo a surgical procedure, you needn’t look any further! Our office is the only podiatry practice in southeast Michigan that has a surgery center that fully complies with Joint Commission rules and standards.
Really, that’s just another way for us to assure you of our constant promise to you: that we are devoted to your safety, comfort, and the quality of your care.
The ability to perform surgical methods right in our own building offers many benefits, including:
The expenses related to the space, materials, and even personnel included in having surgery are usually much lower in a private practice versus a hospital. In addition, many hospital procedures require an overnight stay, while in-office surgeries can often have you back at home the same day!
Our team has already processed your insurance, so no need to fill out additional forms or endless paperwork at a new provider. This lessens the chances that there will be a billing error as well, saving you from costly bills that arrive in your mailbox due to administrative inaccuracy.
By scheduling your surgery with your team at Lakes Foot and Ankle Associates, you’re treated to our friendly staff, familiar faces, and quality patient care. It’s something you definitely won’t get with a major hospital!
Along the lines of being more comfortable, it’s also less nerve-wracking! Many patients feel a little scared when they’re preparing for something as unfamiliar as a surgery. Our family-friendly atmosphere will have you feeling more relaxed and calmer.
So while our team is committed to bringing you the most advanced, up-to-date non-surgical treatment options to resolve your foot and ankle pain, know this: that if you are in need of surgery to correct a lingering issue, you know who to call!
