Minimally Invasive Surgery

What are minimally invasive surgeries?

Because minimally invasive foot surgery (MIFS), does not involve a long incision, it avoids significant damage to the muscles and soft tissue surrounding the foot. In most cases, this results in less pain after foot surgery and a faster recovery.

Foot surgery is recommended only when a period of conservative treatment — such as medications, orthotics, injections, offloading, and physical therapy — has not relieved the symptoms caused by your foot problem. Once the problem is identified the surgeon will inform you of all the surgical options that can be used to fix your foot problem. If you are a candidate for minimally invasive foot surgery then those options will be explained thoroughly.
