At Foot And Ankle Surgeons Of New York, our doctors are committed to providing the best non-surgical and surgical treatments for conditions affecting the foot and ankle. One of the procedures we specialize in is minimal incision surgery (MIS). This method allows us to address several foot problems in our office without causing the patient prolonged periods of pain, discomfort, or disability.
What Is Minimal Incision Surgery?
Minimal incision surgery is a procedure that allows our specially trained foot doctors to eliminate various foot conditions through a small skin incision. This approach enables our team to keep patients walking, allowing them to get back on their feet faster with less pain. Our surgeon utilizes a small instrument and tiny incision to reposition bones or eliminate bony overgrowths during this procedure. Unlike traditional surgeries that often require large incisions, this procedure is performed with small three to five-millimeter incisions. Minimal incision surgery can be performed in our office under local anesthesia. The postoperative recovery period is typically much shorter than traditional surgery, depending on the condition. Some of the advantages you can experience with minimal incision surgery include:
- Less pain.
- Faster return to function.
- Minimal tissue disruption.
- Minimized stiffness.
- Ability to avoid general anesthesia.
- Ability to reap the same results as traditional surgery.
This innovative surgical technique has allowed our surgeons at Foot and Ankle Surgeons of New York to correct or eliminate most bunions, corns, twisted hammertoes, bone spurs, and calluses. Our podiatrists will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your foot condition to determine if minimal incision surgery is right for you.
At Foot and Ankle Surgeons of New York, our primary objective is to get our patients back on their feet quickly and to restore the quality of life that they deserve. Our board-certified podiatrists and surgeons will accurately diagnose your condition and determine the most appropriate treatment plan. If you require minimal incision surgery, we will walk you through the process so you can know what to expect. Be sure to contact our office today to learn more or schedule an appointment!
