Here at our practice, we are experts in the HyProCure procedure. We would love to help you get back on your feet and start living life without pain!
What Is HyProCure Surgery?
HyProCure surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that involves placing a stent in the sinus tarsi, which is the space between the ankle bone and heel bone. This stent helps to realign the bones and alleviate pain. The HyProCure surgery is quick and easy, and most patients report feeling little to no pain after the procedure.
What Are the Benefits of HyProCure Surgery?
HyProCure surgery can help to alleviate pain in the feet, ankles, and knees. This surgery can also help improve balance and reduce pronation. In addition, HyProCure surgery can help to improve your overall quality of life by allowing you to be more active and pain-free.
If you are suffering from flat feet or pronation, we highly recommend that you consider HyProCure surgery. Our team of experts has extensive experience with this procedure and can help you get back to living your life pain-free.
What Is the Preparation for HyProCure Surgery?
The preparation for HyProCure surgery is relatively simple. You will need to have a consultation with our team of experts to ensure that you are a good candidate for the procedure. Once you have been cleared for surgery, we will provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare for your surgery date.
- A review of your current medication list
- Stop taking anti-inflammatory medications two weeks prior to surgery
- Arrange for someone to drive you home after surgery
- Buy supportive shoes to wear after surgery
- Try to quit smoking at least four weeks before the surgery to maximize your body’s ability to heal.
- Prep your home for your post-operative recovery as you will need to take it easy for the first few weeks after surgery.
What Can I Expect on the Day of the Surgery?
Because it is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia, we perform the surgery right here in our office.
The operation itself only takes 20 minutes, so you can expect to be in and out within an hour or two.
After the procedure is complete, you will be given a post-operative care packet that includes detailed instructions on how to care for your feet during the recovery process.
In most cases, you will be able to walk also immediately after surgery, but we do recommend that you take it easy for the first few weeks and you will need someone to drive you home from the surgery.
What Can I Expect After HyProCure Surgery?
After HyProCure surgery, you can expect to experience some swelling and bruising around the surgical site. This is normal and will subside over time.
The first set of bandages will be applied in the operating room and will need to be kept on for seven days.
At this point, you should begin to change the bandages once a day.
You will need to wear loose and comfortable shoes for approximately four to six weeks, and we will see you back in our office periodically to make sure your feet are healing properly.
