Foot & Ankle Surgery

Surgery can be a great option for alleviating your foot and ankle pain, but there are times when conservative treatment may still be an option. Dr. Nelson would be happy to discuss your options with you. Dr. Nelson will take the time to explain your surgery but also the postoperative care as well. The postoperative care is just as important as the surgery to achieve a successful outcome. You will typically be seen within 3-5 days after surgery for your first visit postoperative. We have the equipment that you need for after surgery like cam boots, surgical shoes or crutches and will dispense them to you from our office.

Dr Nelson does surgery at the following locations: UnityPoint – Des Moines (Lutheran, Methodist, Methodist West), Story County Medical Center, Surgery Center of Des Moines – West and Mary Greeley Medical Center
