Podiatric surgical complications
from Podiatry Management
It often has been said that a podiatric surgeon who claims to not have surgical complications is simply not performing that many surgeries. Surgical complications unfortunately occur to a certain extent in all podiatric surgical practices. Recognizing and handling them in a swift and effective manner is one of the true measures of a podiatric surgeon's ability. The causes of surgical complications are widespread — from surgical expertise, patient compliance, and infection to neurologic injury, surgical settings, and problems of structural deficit. Of course, knowing how to counsel patients who are experiencing these complications is a necessary skill unto itself.
