Falcon’s Julio Jones Undergoes Foot Surgery

Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons has had several foot injuries throughout his career. He suffered two different foot fractures in 2011 and 2013, and is currently recovering from a bunion removal surgery that he had in March. Jones is three months into his rehabilitation timetable, and hopes to be ready by training camp in July. In regards to his injury Jones stated, “It was good just to be back out on the grass and just testing it out, I felt great. Just working my way into it; just easing into it.”

When Is Surgery Necessary?

Foot and ankle surgery is generally reserved for cases in which less invasive, conservative procedures have failed to alleviate the problem. Some of the cases in which surgery may be necessary include:

  • Removing foot deformities like bunions and bone spurs
  • Severe arthritis that has caused bone issues
  • Cosmetic reconstruction

What Types of Surgery Are There?

The type of surgery you receive will depend on the nature of the problem you have. Some of the possible surgeries include:

  • Bunionectomy for painful bunions
  • Surgical fusion for realignment of bones
  • Neuropathy decompression surgery to treat nerve damage

Benefits of Surgery

Although surgery is usually a last resort, it can provide more complete pain relief compared to non-surgical methods and may allow you to finally resume full activity.

Surgical techniques have also become increasingly sophisticated. Techniques like endoscopic surgery allow for smaller incisions and faster recovery times.
