Minimally Invasive Surgery

minimally invasive surgery

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 Bunion Surgery. This type of procedure requires only micro incisions to be made in the skin of the foot to correct the deformity and realign the bones. This type of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is an alternative to traditional bunion surgery. It can reduce the pain, risk, recovery time and scarring associated with open surgery. There are various techniques of MIS bunion surgery including Percutaneous Chevron Akin—where the podiatrist cuts and repositions the first metatarsal and big toe bones—and minimally invasive Percutaneous Lapidus technique, which involves cutting the big toe bone, then realigning and fusing the midfoot joint.
