Pain Free Foot & Ankle Surgery using Pain Pump Technology
The physicians at Orange County Foot & Ankle Group, Inc. are Board Certified in Foot Surgery. They perform hundreds of surgical procedures annually helping people with a wide variety of foot & ankle problems. Put simply, our physicians are the experts in all types of foot & ankle surgery. We routinely perform surgeries to correct bunions, heel pain, hammertoes, neuromas, fractures, tendon injuries, ligament damage, ingrown toenails, warts and many other foot & ankle conditions. If you think you need surgery you have come to the right place!
Your ON-Q* pump will continuously deliver a local anesthetic medication to block the pain in the area of your procedure.
As the medication is delivered, the pump ball will gradually become smaller. Because the pump delivers the medication very slowly, it's not uncommon for it to take up to 24 hours before you'll notice a change in the size and look of the pump.
The On-Q Difference:
Better pain relief & less need for narcotics
Feel better faster
Quicker return to normal body function
Less chance of grogginess
Potential for earlier hospital release
Most surgical procedures are performed on an outpatient basis at one of the three Orange County Surgery Centers we are affiliated with. We also perform surgeries at two Orange County Hospitals if an overnight stay in the hospital is necessary. We use only the most advanced equipment and the latest surgical techniques to ensure the best results and a quick recovery. We have specialized pain management techniques to ensure your recovery from surgery is virtually pain free.
Of course, everyone's surgery and circumstances are different. That is why our physicians and staff will take the time to explain what will be necessary in your case before surgery, what surgical procedure will be required and what the recovery period will entail. This is customized for each patient.
