Odell Beckham Jr. to Undergo Foot Surgery

According to Giants’ coach Ben McAdoo, it's safe to say that Odell Beckham Jr. will be out for the rest of the season due to having to undergo surgery on his ankle. Beckham injured his ankle during the Giants vs Chargers game in which the Chargers won. This isn’t the first time Beckham sustained an injury to the ankle this season; he sprained his ankle during the preseason.

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.
