Common Foot Surgeries: Bunions, Hammertoes, and Claw Toes
As we head into the colder months, we want to remind our elderly patients to take extra care when maneuvering the ice and snow. Studies show that when facing icy conditions, adults over the age of 65 had double the odds of having great difficulty when leaving their home, and fall-related fractures are statistically higher in older adults during the winter month. Hip and arm fractures are more common among the elderly in cold weather due to the higher incidence of falls.
