Dr. Will A. Rosena, DPM provides each surgical patient with one or two surgical shoes post-operatively to support and protect the patient's foot. This type of shoe is made especially to accommodate bulky casts or bandaging.
Refer to the photos below for two different examples of a surgical shoe by Darco. Many different companies make surgical shoes. The second example is referred to as a wedge shoe for the purposes of offloading pressure away from the forefoot after surgery.
