Our podiatric surgeons at Foot and Ankle Surgeons of New York provide the most innovative treatments for conditions affecting the feet and ankles, including minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Minimally invasive foot surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis and allows us to correct many painful foot conditions and diseases. MIS may not be for everyone, but it can be an excellent way to achieve lasting results with limited pain, downtime, and scarring for those who are candidates.
What Conditions Can MIS Treat?
In the past, foot surgeons relied on traditional measures requiring large incisions. This method requires a much longer healing period. Now, foot surgeons can correct various foot deformities through small incisions in the skin. Minimally invasive surgery is an innovative procedure that can be performed on an outpatient basis. MIS cuts your healing time considerably and allows for a better cosmetic result. Some of the conditions that can be corrected with MIS include:
- Ankle Injuries
- Heel Pain
Some conditions may not be suitable for MIS procedures. Our team will determine the appropriate course of action to get you back on your feet as soon as possible.
Is MIS Right For You?
Our foot surgeon at Foot and Ankle Surgeons of New York will perform a comprehensive evaluation and discuss the different treatment options available for your condition. MIS can be an effective technique when conservative measures fail to provide relief. This procedure offers many benefits, including:
- Minimal stress on the foot.
- Less post-operative pain.
- Less risk of infection.
- Faster recovery.
- Shorter surgery time.
- Less scarring.
After conservative approaches, our staff recommends MIS procedures whenever possible to ensure your foot will look better and heal faster.
