Foot surgeries

Foot and ankle surgery can be required after injury or because of damage or inflammation caused by disease, and other joint defects. Experienced orthopaedic traumatologists perform foot and ankle surgery at Northway centres. Modern equipment and professionalism of specialists ensure the highest quality of services.

Feet are made up of 26 bones and more than 33 joints, so there are many areas that can cause problems due to age or injury. When non-operative methods have failed to reduce pain, deformity or disease then speak with one of our Orthopedic Doctors to discuss the option of foot surgery. There are many types of foot surgery depending on the cause of your symptoms. Achilles Tendon repair A ruptured or torn Achilles Tendon is a common injury from sports and exercise. It can often be diagnosed with examination alone, but an MRI or ultrasound scan may be required to assess the severity of the injury. Casts, boots, splints, or braces can sometimes be enough to let the injury heal but some people, especially those who are young and active or competitive athletes, may benefit from surgery. There are several different techniques, but they all involve bringing the torn ends of the tendon together and a period of immobility (with a cast or brace) to allow the torn ends to heal together, followed by physiotherapy to strengthen and stretch the leg. Complete recovery can take 4-6 months. Reconstructive surgery This surgery is carried out to correct the anatomy of the foot and restore the function lost. This treatment would be suitable for someone that is flat footed or has suffered trauma to the foot or ankle and it is having a negative impact on how they go about their day. Foot fracture surgery Serious fractures that cannot be treated with a cast or splint might require surgery. These fractures are often unstable or involve joints. Surgery usually involves making a cut to the skin over the fractured bones to allow the broken ends to be realigned. Often metal pins, plates, rods, or screws will be used to hold the bones together while they heal. The surgery will most likely be done under general anaesthetic and you might have to stay in hospital for a few days after. Recovery can take 3-12 months and usually involves a period of rest followed by physiotherapy. Toe deformity correction surgery Deformities of the toe can cause pain, swelling, and difficulty walking. There are lots of different types of toe deformity, including hammer, claw, mallet and cross-over toes. A common deformity of the great toe is a bunion, or painful bony lumps which put pressure on the toe joint. Bunions can cause pain, stiffness, swelling, and difficulty walking and can eventually lead to arthritis. Some people are born with toe deformities, and some develop during adult life. Sometimes correct advice on footwear is enough to treat problems caused by toe deformities. Surgical treatment involves correction of the deformity and addressing underlying mechanical causes. Depending on the type of surgery, it may be performed under local or general anaesthetic and may require the use of pins, wires, or other hardware. Recovery usually involves a period of rest followed by rehabilitation and corrective footwear.

Clinic in Vilnius – great, very clear and considering that English is not their first language I was impressed and never felt like there was any miscommunication. Very good service.

10 years ago, I had my plastic surgery done by Dr Arunas Jankauskas. I am well satisfied; he did an amazing work and also saved my life. He is such a professional doctor I would highly recommend.  And I would like to say thanks to Dr Indre Sakalauskaite for doing another amazing plastic surgery for my cousin, well professional and very caring.  All for all my treatments included my teeth cleaning I am very satisfied. Northway Clinic will remain my one of the best.

Marius Sakalinis as a combination of highly skilled, competent knowledge and human potential. Success is guaranteed with such an amazing team! Wishing you to stay healthy. With best wishes, Janina Bisliene.

I am very happy about my decision to go to Northway medical centre. I made this decision after long search and many considerations. M. Šakalinis is a truly expert in his field. When I arrived for surgery, I felt comfortable, I trusted him and the entire personnel. Thank you.

Amazing orthopaedist and traumatologist. This was the first doctor I met in my life who would make me feel so calm about my health issues after the appointment.

I really love to visit your centre! I am very grateful for the help I received from doctors and staff at the Fertility Treatment Centre. Top-level expertise and patient-oriented approach. Finally, my visit to gynaecologist has become pleasant 🙂

Surgery, my doctor and caring staff have exceeded my expectations. Services of top quality.

Very beautiful and comfortable premises, nice and highly skilled doctors, helpful and nice nurses. When I came to the centre, I felt like home. I was surrounded by an absolute care.

I will recommend to my friends and acquaintances. Reasonable prices for consultations. An orthopaedist and traumatologist explained me the diagnosis in every possible detail, many thanks.

Amazing doctors. They evaluated my condition, made an examination and treatment plan. Exams and tests are done very quickly. Excellent experience, thank you very much!

Wonderful doctor. I trusted him right away and did not regret. Dr. Jankauskas is an excellent professional. I will definitely return. Many thanks.
