I had a ankle joint infusion, now having a balance problem.

I had a joint infusion of the right ankle (i think it was the talus. I am now walking on the outside of my right foot. And have fallen a number of times. I am having a balance problem ( I sort of dog track, if you know what I mean), I loose balance and my one foot comes across the other and causes my feet to get tangled up and causes me to fall. My podiatrist said i should have more surgery on my heel. And that will consist of them taking a wedge out of my heel and putting a staple in. This should help me to walk more on the center of the bottom of my foot. Do you think this will help? I have a very high arch in my feet. Which the doctor seems to think may have something to do with this problem. Thank you
