Foot Reconstruction Surgery in Boise
Foot reconstruction surgery is typically performed to realign or correct the foot’s structure. The purpose is to restore functionality the foot may have lost after degenerative disease or injury.
Typical Reasons Patients Seek Foot Reconstruction
There are many reasons why patients come to The Flint Foot and Ankle Institute for foot reconstruction. Some of the more common reasons include:
- Painful bunions or hammertoes
- Severe flatfoot deformity
- Abnormally high arch
- Foot fracture deformity or malunion
- Congenital deformities
- Athletic related injuries such as tendon or ligament tears
- Plantar fasciitis resulting in severe pain
- Heel spurs
- Bone spurs
- Arthritis related deformities
Your surgical requirements will vary based on many factors. Dr. Flint will walk through all possibilities with the goal that you fully understand the situation and are able to make an informed decision on treatment.
Reconstructive surgery may be performed either on an inpatient basis or on an outpatient basis depending on your specific injury or illness. Dr. Flint and his staff will walk you through every aspect of your surgery to include pre-op and post-op expectations.
Again, the primary purpose of any type of foot reconstruction surgery is to reduce pain and your function.

Kind Words From Our Patients!
“My daughter was diagnosed with a stress fracture. Dr. Flint made sure she understood her injury and how to heal properly. When she received her “ugly boot” (my daughters words 🙂) the nurse told her to bedazzle the boot. She loved that idea. Dr. Flint and the staff were kind, pleasant, knowledgeable, and helpful.”
“It was the first time that i saw him after a failed surgery from a previous doctor. He really listened and cared for what i had to say. Dr. Flint took the time to help me get my quality of life back and set a plan in place to do so.”
