Northwest’s Podiatrists Are Accomplished At Multiple Surgical Techniques

In the case of an open break, your surgeon may perform debridement to remove damaged and/or infected tissue around the injury to help reduce infection rates and improve healing. The preferred method of foot fracture surgery in North Idaho is open reduction and internal fixation. In this procedure, an incision is made in the foot to straighten bones, and pins, plates, or screws are used to hold the bones together internally. In external fixation screws are placed through the skin to hold fractured bones together by securing them to an external device. Foot fracture surgery in North Idaho has a high success rate.
