Foot & Ankle Associates provides advanced technology solutions like HyProCure® right at our Sugar Land, TX, podiatry office that can find the cause of your foot pain and help you to heal fast. 90% of our patients tell us that they get relief from pain right from the first visit!
Misaligned feet lead to all sorts of problems within our feet. They can also lead to chronic pain to your knees, hips, and back. HyProCure is a minimally invasive solution to misaligned feet. Instantly, the ankle bone is realigned and stabilized on the heel bone. This helps to realign the foot and decrease the strain on the feet, knees, hips, and back.
HyProCure® is a device that Podiatrist Dr. Vargas uses to stabilize the inside of your foot. It acts as a stent to keep the inside space in a normal and open position. Right after the procedure, he positions the ankle and rear foot bones into proper alignment. The stent lasts forever, though a foot doctor can remove it at any time. Athletes love HyProCure® because it helps to get them back into the game fast.
Before and After
Unlike a stressful surgery, HyProCure® enables you to get in and out and recover quickly. Podiatrist Dr. Vargas will put you under a local anesthesia or twilight sedation so that you never go completely under, the way you may with other surgeries. He inserts the HyProCure® device through a very small incision and slides it right into place. Your foot tissues will naturally attach to the device as you heal in order to hold it in place. Dr. Vargas will not drill or screw anything into your foot.
Unlike traditional surgery, HyProCure® means no scar tissue or return of the pain. You will not need to go to the hospital for overnight observation. Instead of asking you to remain inactive for a month or more, with HyProCure®, Dr. Vargas will ask you to limit your walking for just 3 – 5 days. After that, you may begin increasing your activity level until you feel completely back to normal!
If you have painful symptoms because your ankle bone has shifted from its proper positioning to the heel bone, Dr. Vargas can help you heal quickly by re-aligning the foot. If your child is at least three years of age, he can help them, too. The symptoms will not get better with time, exercise, or physical therapy. Children will not “grow out” of it. If your ankle bone has shifted, you will require an internal solution like HyProCure® if you don’t want to have surgery.
If you live in the Sugar Land, TX area, you are lucky! Dr. Vargas is one of only two podiatrists in the Houston, TX area who is specially trained, qualified and certified to use HyProCure® with his patients.
