Minimally Invasive Surgery
What Does Minimally Invasive Surgery Mean?
Patients love these procedures because they all:
- Require minimal stitches
- Incision of an inch or less
- Very little scarring
- Little to no time off work
- Are many times performed in the office, which saves money spent at a surgical center
- Have great outcomes
Types of MIS Procedures
One of the most popular procedures are the Hammertoe correction procedures.
There are two types that we perform in the office, the extensor tenotomy or the flexor tenotomy. (It just depends on which type of hammertoe you have).
Both require a small stab incision and local numbing only. You actually walk out that day and can go right back to work!
This is a HUGE leap compared to the traditional hammertoe correction surgery with lengthy time off of your foot.
This MIS procedure is performed in the surgical center because it requires very high tech equipment to correct chronic plantar fasciitis.
This surgery requires 1-3 stitches at the most and again, patients walk out the same day in a boot.
Most of these require no stitches and only local anesthesia. Most patients are able to get up and go back to work same day.
MIS surgeries include small masses, warts, ganglion cysts and nevi (moles).
