The Virtual Consultation Process

  1. Scheduling the Appointment: Begin by scheduling a telehealth appointment through the Pediatric Foot & Ankle website. This step ensures your child’s specific needs are addressed promptly and efficiently.
  2. Initial Consultation: During the virtual consultation, Dr. Jarman will discuss your child’s medical history, current symptoms, and any previous treatments. He will provide a detailed evaluation and recommend the next steps, which may include conservative treatments or surgical intervention if necessary.
  3. Surgical Qualification: If surgery is deemed necessary, Dr. Jarman will explain the surgical procedure in detail. The office’s surgical scheduler will assist in planning the surgery date and provide all necessary information and support.
  4. Pre-Surgery Office Visit: An office visit is required the day before surgery to conduct a thorough workup and confirm your child’s candidacy for the procedure.

The Surgical Process for Toe Walking

  1. Day of Surgery: On the day of the surgery, patients need to arrive at the surgical center an hour before the procedure. Most patients can leave the center an hour after the surgery is completed. A cast is applied to protect the surgical site.
  2. Follow-Up Care: A mandatory follow-up is scheduled two weeks post-surgery to remove the initial cast and apply a new one with a special modification for easy removal at home. At week four, the child transitions into a walking boot for two weeks.
  3. Post-Surgery Follow-Up: Around week seven, an office staff member will call to discuss proper expectations as your child transitions out of the walking boot into regular shoes. The second leg surgery, if needed, is typically scheduled 2.5 months after the initial surgery, following the same procedure and follow-up process.

Post-Operative Care and Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is highly recommended starting approximately six weeks after surgery. A final telehealth follow-up is scheduled six months post-surgery to confirm your child’s progress and ensure they are on the right track to recovery.
