At the request of our local ER's, physician colleagues and in accordance with federal CDC guidelines, Texas Foot Surgeons has remained open. We continue to resolve painful foot and ankle conditions for patients, and in doing so, reduce unnecessary visits to hospitals, primary care physician offices, and urgent care facilities during the COVID-19 crisis.
During this unusual period in our world many people are asking if it is safe to visit the doctor. While it has always been standard protocol for our staff to continually follow CDC level infection prevention protocols, we have adopted even more stringent procedures in response to the coronavirus, some of which are listed on this page. It is still important to see a physician if you are in pain or suspect infection. Even a seemingly minor foot or ankle injury can be agonizing, lead to permanent damage or disability if left untreated, and in the case of unresolved infection, likely lead to inpatient hospitalization.
When experiencing symptoms, seek help from your foot and ankle specialist. Ignoring pain and signs of infection could make an injury worse and cause prolonged and more costly treatment. We can ease your apprehension and make your experience as stress-free as possible when time sensitive, medically necessary surgery is urgent. Most foot and ankle surgeries do not require an inpatient hospital stay when treated at first signs and symptoms. The vast majority can be performed in our office or in day surgery facilities in a few hours or less.
Texas Foot Surgeons works with our medical community to help eradicate this pandemic while prioritizing surgical solutions with local hospital and ambulatory surgery center leaders.
We continue to serve new and established patients with foot and ankle conditions to help you avoid prolonged pain or disease progression and potential complications.
