ImanFamous model Iman will be going through rehabilitation to her feet after undergoing a recent foot surgery. Sources indicate that the 58-year-old is nursing her feet by her husband, rock icon David Bowie.
Bowie has been by Iman’s side as she recovers from this mystery foot procedure. News about the operation has emerged after Iman fractured her foot, in an injury which caused her to quit wearing high heels.

Your feet may require foot or ankle surgery. If you believe you need surgery, consult a podiatrist like Dr. James C. Ricketti of Hamilton. Dr. Ricketti can evaluate your foot or ankle condition and decide whether surgery is right 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.
