Minimal Incision Surgery

Minimal Incision Surgery may be one type of surgery that we may decide to use for your particular problem. Minimal Incision Surgery (MIS) was developed in the early 70’s and is now in widespread use.

Using MIS, the particular area of concern on your foot will be anesthetized. A small incision will be made (approximately 1/4″) and a fine precision instrument will be used to perform the surgery. Usually no more than a single stitch is required. Pins, screws, wire or staples are not used and soft bandaging takes the place of casts and crutches. You may even be able to wear your own shoes immediately after the surgery!
