At Issaquah Foot & Ankle Specialists, we provide the best surgical treatment. We want to prepare our patients for their surgery. Here are some of the helpful things to prepare for before your foot surgery. Plan ahead for meals, driving, shopping, sleeping and bathing.

Do your errands ahead of time:

-get your post op Rx filled

-have your meal planning done, you may want to get some premade dinners and easy meals

Prepare your house:

-set-up a bed on the main floor of the house, so you do not have to use stairs.

-set up your shower, get an inexpensive hand shower head

-get a plastic chair you can put inside the shower

Family help:

-make sure a family member or friend can help during the 1rst 24 hours and

-arrange for help with driving
