Minimal Invasive Surgery
A minimally invasive procedure can help you to get back on your feet faster, with less pain. The minimal-incision surgery is performed with small 3-5mm incisions, compared to 3–5-inch incisions used in traditional surgeries. The innovative technique utilizes percutaneous, micro-incisions to correct bunions (hallux valgus), as well as hallux rigidus and other foot conditions, which cause far less damage to your foot.
Advantages of the minimal incision surgery include:
- Less pain
- Earlier return to function compared to an open procedure
- Smaller incision
- Minimal disruption of the tissues about joints minimizing stiffness.
- Smaller scars
- Able to avoid general anesthesia
- Ability to obtain the same results as traditional surgery with all the benefits listed above.
