By far the best experience in a NYC doctor’s office I’ve had in 20 years. Friendly, attentive front desk staff, less than 10 minute wait to get in. Dr. Stuart Mogul was very knowledgeable, professional and pleasant. Super beautiful and high tech office. He asked great questions, explained my treatment plan thoroughly.  Didn’t  pressure me to book with him. Offers free consults! Has tons of before and afters that you can look at. I did have my bunions surgery with him – life changer! Surgery and recovery was easy breezy! Highly recommend this place! ~ Google

Dr. Mogul’s Foot Surgery Practice Philosophy is Simple: He provides his patients with the most advanced foot surgery procedures that are minimally invasive, have an easy and short recovery, with results that are beautiful and second to none!

The most common foot surgeries that Dr. Mogul performs include:

Bunion Surgery:  Bunions may be corrected by the best in class NYC foot surgeon with conservative treatments or bunion surgery. If the conservative treatment fails to relieve the bunion / bunions pain, then the surgeon may recommend “bunionectomy”, surgical removal of a bunion. The main goal of the bunion surgery is to remove painful deformities, restore normal bone alignment, and prevent recurrence. View Before & After Bunion Surgery Pictures Here

Hammertoe Surgery: Usually when the hammertoe has become rigid and painful, or when an open sore or corn has developed, hammertoe surgery is required. Often patients with hammertoe(s) who have bunions or other foot deformities elect surgical correction at the same time. In selecting the procedure or combination of surgical procedures for your particular case, Dr. Mogul will take into consideration the extent of your foot deformity, the number of toes involved, your age, your activity level, and other factors.

Hallux Rigidus: Surgery for Osteoarthritis of the great toe joint or “hallux rigidus” is a common surgical procedure performed by Dr. Stuart Mogul. Arthritis at the base of the big toe is known as “hallux rigidus”. This condition commonly affects professional athletes as a result of repeated trauma or non-athletes or that have a foot structure that predisposes them to developing hallux rigidus. Hallux rigidus may be confused as a bunion, however it is an arthritic condition not a misalignment deformity like a bunion.

Corn SurgeryIf Corns are left untreated, they can become very painful and may interrupt the blood supply to the area and cause an ulcer. It is recommended that people with diabetes are regularly screened and treated accordingly to prevent the development of corns that can cause ulcerations. Surgical treatment for this condition is similar to the surgical correction for hammertoes. Surgery to correct soft corns can be performed in the doctor’s Upper East Side NYC office or in an outpatient surgery center. A local anesthetic is adequate for corn surgery in most cases.

Neuromas / Morton’s Neuroma SurgeryA Morton’s neuroma is in essence an entrapped nerve. Neuromas can cause a multitude of symptoms but typically intermittent forefoot pain and tingling numbness are presented. Surgical excision is described as the most definitive mode of treatment and best practice for symptomatic Morton’s neuroma.

Flat Foot / Flat Feet SurgeryFlat feet can be broadly classified into flexible and rigid in nature. The type of flat foot is determined through clinical testing and surgery may be necessary to correct the deformity. There are a number of surgical procedures available to correct and restore the alignment of the flat foot, including minimally invasive procedures such as the hyprocure extra-articular subtalar joint implants and a multitude of other ‘traditional open’ tendon and bone re-alignment procedures.

Sports Injuries: The NYC foot surgeon, Dr. Stuart Mogul, has successfully performed foot surgery on professional ballerinas, football players, hockey players, soccer players, skate-boarders, skiers, as well as non-professional athletes (adults and adolescents). Dr. Mogul provides expert diagnosis and management of all musculoskeletal foot injuries for both elite and recreational athletes but also acute and overuse injuries that occur at work or during everyday activities.

Cosmetic Foot Surgery: Dr. Stuart Mogul is the undisputed innovator of cosmetic foot surgery in NYC and now attracts patients worldwide who seek his expertise. The feet are certainly no less deserving of cosmetic attention than any other part of the body. If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your feet than cosmetic foot surgery may be right for you.

Foot Fractures: There are two types of foot fractures: stress fractures and general bone fractures. Stress fractures occur in the bones of the forefoot extending from the toes to the middle of the foot. Stress fractures are like tiny cracks in the bone surface. Dr. Mogul is the leader in foot fracture surgery in NYC for professional athletes as well as non-athletes (including children and teenagers).

Heel PainHeel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is sometimes also called “heel spur syndrome” which occurs when a spur is present. Heel pain may also be due to other causes, such as a stress fracture, tendonitis, arthritis, nerve irritation, or even a cyst.  If, after several months of non-surgical treatment, you continue to have heel pain, surgery will be considered. Dr. Mogul will discuss the surgical options with you based on your case and determine which approach would be most beneficial for you.

* Surgery is only considered after conservative management such as stretching, orthotics, exercise and shoe modification has been exhausted or deemed inappropriate.
