Daniel Curry, an actor/dancer in the Broadway musical about Spider Man, is not sure if he will ever dance again. Curry suffered a grave injury on the set of the musical and the New York Times reports that his foot, snagged in a mechanical stage lift, had to be mostly replaced with pins and plates.
Curry states that he, at one point, really believed he was going to die. “I was praying through those moments, and just trying to stay as calm as possible.”
Surgeons repaired the pulverized foot and ankle in three places. Now, Curry is forced to use crutches and wears an orthopedic boot. So, as a result, Curry has filed a complaint and is suing the producers of the show; Michael Cohl and Jeremiah Harris, for negligence.
Foot surgery is necessary for all kinds of different foot and ankle conditions. If you have had a foot complication recently and are considering surgery, consult with a podiatrist like Dr. Neal Mozen, DPM of Foot Health Care Associates. Dr. Mozen will identify how severe your injury is and help you decide if surgery is necessary for you.
When is Foot Surgery Needed?
Foot surgery is usually required in events where regular therapy has proven to be ineffective. Surgeons often use foot surgery as a last resort because of its invasive nature. In many cases physical therapy, medication, rest, exercise, and casts can help to heal a foot injury. However, sometimes you may need to have surgery done without ever having an injury. Foot surgery can correct a birth defect or deformity or be used for reconstructive purposes. Foot surgery is designed to improve the quality of your feet and to help you return to your daily life.
In extreme cases where the foot cannot be saved, or is beyond repair and is hinders the health of nearby parts of the body, amputation may be a necessary. However the main goal is to save the feet, making such options a last resort.
