Minimally invasive surgery can mean smaller incisional approaches or endoscopic procedures. Using minimally invasive techniques and surgeries provide our patients with many benefits over traditional treatments and surgeries. These benefits typically include:
- Significantly less pain over traditional surgery
- Quicker recovery time
- Faster return to work and normal activities
- Less damage to tissue
- Less scarring
- Outpatient surgery
Minimally Invasive (MIS) Bunion Surgery Instead of a large incision on the foot, very small incisions are made coupled with the use with x-ray. The bone is cut, shifted over, and fixated with 2 screws. Due to the strength of these 2 screws, you will be able to walk after surgery. This minimally invasive approach allows for less pain and swelling after surgery compared to traditional bunion surgery. There may be additional necessary procedures to achieve full correction of the bunion that our podiatrists will discuss with you.
