Top Foot Surgery in New Hampshire ​

Bunion Surgery - (Hallux Valgus Procedure)

Bunion Surgery

Hallux Valgus, commonly referred to as a bunion, is a mechanical deformity in the foot resulting in a misaligned great toe joint.  These deformities can lead to a large, painful bump on the side of the foot.  Often times the only treatment to alleviate painful symptoms is through surgical intervention.  The surgical procedure involves realigning the affected joint with placement of hardware (screws and/or plate).  Once the joint is realigned, most patients are able to return to all levels of previous activity.

Ingrown Toenails Surgery

Ingrown toenails are a common condition in adults.  They occur when the corner of a toenail grows into the skin or when the skin grows over the toenail.  Ingrown toenails cause pain and swelling.  If left untreated, they can lead to infection.  In some cases, ingrown toenails can be treated at home.  A doctor should treat an ingrown toenail if home treatments fail, you are at risk for infection, or you suspect that your ingrown toenail is infected.
Minor surgery can permanently cure an ingrown toenail (onychocryptosis). When a nail penetrates the skin surrounding it, pain, redness, and swelling may occur. Infection can also spread to the surrounding tissue and sometimes even to the bone. Before administering a local anesthesia, the podiatrist evaluates whether surgery is needed. While the healing time is short, this treatment is suitable only for specific cases.

Hammer Toe Surgery

Hammertoe most commonly affects the second toe on the foot. It causes the middle joint to bend. Hammertoe is most frequently caused by structural problems in the toe or from wearing poor fitting shoes. It is important to diagnose and treat hammertoe early because the condition tends to become worse over time. If left untreated, hammertoe can require surgery

The podiatrist determines the appropriate treatment. Visit our podiatric clinic for a complete evaluation of a hammer toe or claw toe.

Skin Biopsy & Nail Biopsy

A skin biopsy can detect a large number of skin abnormalities. By taking a small sample of the skin of the lower limbs, the podiatrist can diagnose cancer and determine if the disease is affecting the adjacent skin. The biopsy can even target the source of the problem.

A nail biopsy can detect the presence of fungi and other skin diseases. It can be practiced with or without local anesthesia. The podiatrist will take a small sample of the nail and will analyze it quickly. Please note that we alone offer this service in the region.

Achilles’ Tendon Repair

Chronic Achilles’ tendinitis can lead to changes in the tendon that may require surgical intervention. Surgical attention is only required once all conservative options have failed to alleviate pain including physical therapy, aggressive stretching and icing, and immobilization in a walking boot. Surgery entails repair of the tendon to remove any portions of bad tendon, while repairing and bolstering the remaining portions of the tendon. We work with the patient to ensure a smooth recovery process following the procedure.

Acute Achilles’ injuries can lead to a tear, or even a rupture of the Achilles’ tendon. This requires immediate surgical intervention for repair of the ruptured tendon. Our specialist is ready to treat your Achilles’ injury from diagnosis and surgery to recovery. 

Ankle Instability

Ankle instability can occur from chronic sprained ankles, which can damage one of the main ankle ligaments on the outside of the ankle. This ligament is named the Anterior Talofibular Ligament. This ligament is the most commonly injured ligament during ankle sprains. If the injury is chronic and occurs repeatedly, this may lead to pain and instability to the ankle. Surgical repair of the ligament is often indicated when chronic pain is present in the area. Dr. Christie specializes in repair of lateral ankle instability and is prepared to treat your injury and keep you moving for your active lifestyle. 

Neuroma Surgery

A neuroma is an inflamed nerve that can occur in the foot between two specific toes. Sometimes, surgical intervention is required if pain is not alleviated by conservative measures including cortisone injections or orthotics. Excision of neuroma surgery entails removing the inflamed portion of the nerve between the toes. Dr. Christie is prepared to alleviate your neuroma pain via medial or surgical care.
