There are many reasons for ankle surgery, such as injuries, congenital defects, and degenerative diseases that lead to ankle deformities. As a result of these conditions, the ankle bone structure may need realignment through surgical procedures to reduce pain, restore mobility, and lessen difficulties walking. The type of ankle surgery necessary varies from condition to condition, but most are done as outpatient procedures. The surgery may involve removal of the deformity as well as realignment. Temporary and/ or permanent fixation devices can be required internally and externally for the ankle to keep proper alignment post-surgery and in the future. The doctor will advise the patient on the recovery process and duration, as well as appropriate home care and physical therapy to restore mobility and strength.
Absolutely the best!! I was recommended to Dr. Hochstein after a unsuccessful bunion surgery where I had been through 5 months of pain, excessive swelling, and eventually a non-Union. I was told I had a healing problem and I’m 31 with no medical conditions. I didn’t know where to turn to or what to do […]
Such a pleasant experience. I had an emergency foot problem and Dr.Hochstein took me in the next day. He is such a personable, kind person and I would recommend him to anybody!
Dr. Alec Hochstein and his staff at Great Neck Family Foot Care are terrific. I have had a diabetic wound that would not heal for 15 years. In 8 visits the wound is healed and I can work and walk without pain or swelling. He is very competent, professional and sometimes funny. He answers question […]

Awesome experience! Dr. Hochstein was great. He is very knowledgable and professional. He took the time to explain everything and his quirky humor always puts a smile on my face. The staff is also top notch. They are always very professional and extremely pleasant. You are always greeted with a smile. Highly recommend!!!
I have been a patient of Dr. Alec Hochstein for over 5 years. Dr. Hochstein and staff are like family. When anyone in my family ever has a foot complaint, or injury, and their have been many, I know help is only a phone call away. Although they are always busy, I have never had […]
Recently I sent a dear friend to Dr. Hochstein for a chronic non-healing wound. The wound had been open for over a year and other health care providers in the area had been unsuccessful in getting it to heal. Not only did Dr. Hochstein heal her wound, but within a matter of weeks. She raved […]
