ImanIconic supermodel Iman underwent foot surgery, and as a result, is currently in the recovery stages. The 58 year old beauty icon’s husband, David Bowie, currently tends to her recovery process.

News of Iman’s operation have been made known upon the supermodel sustaining a foot fracture. Due to this injury, Iman actually had to quit wearing high heels. Hopefully Iman will be able to make a full recovery and be back on her feet soon enough but for now will continue to be in the care of her husband.

 Your feet may require foot or ankle surgery. If you are suffering from an injury or foot condition that requires surgery, consult podiatrist Dr. Sorelis Jimenez of Foot Health Podiatry. Dr. Jimenez can evaluate your foot or ankle condition and decide whether or not surgery is best for you.   

When Surgery is Necessary

Foot and ankle surgery are reserved in cases when less invasive procedures and treatments do not help with the problem.  Although surgery is generally considered to be a last resort, when undertaken it can provide a permanent pain relief than before and allows you to resume the activities your foot problem has prevented you from enjoying otherwise. This includes:

· Foot deformities (bunions, bone spurs)
· Painful nerves
· Congenital deformities
· Misaligned bones

The type of surgery you will undergo is dependent on the problem at hand. For painful bunions, you may undergo a bunionectomy. Surgical fusions can help realign bones while nerve removal can help get rid of painful nerves and the tissues that surround them.  With advancing, evolving technology and surgical techniques becoming more sophisticated, many procedures are now being performed with small incisions and more precise instruments, allowing for faster recovery times.
