Dr. David Levine Discusses Post-Op Orthoses in Podiatry Today
In the December 2018 issue 12 volume 31 of Podiatry Today, Dr. David Levine responds to questions regarding Post-Op Orthoses in an expert four panelist Q&A.
Dr. Levine discuses for which conditions he recommends post-op orthoses and the type of benefits patients should expect to see. He indicates that when a patient has a procedure that changes their biomechanical function, orthotic devices should be a postoperative option, as orthotics are a great way to improve function and enhance comfort.
Modifications and each orthotic device is specific to the type of surgery and underlying symptom. It is important to be properly evaluated by a podiatrist to find out the best option for your needs.
