Surgery plays an important role in treating foot and ankle conditions yet is often poorly understood. This chapter uses the available evidence to provide an overview of common surgical procedures and their outcomes. It is not intended to be instructional but, instead, we hope it will help inform clinicians about surgical options and their outcomes, as well as offering advice on the perioperative management of people undergoing foot and ankle surgery.
