What is minimally invasive foot surgery?
Minimally invasive surgery is a philosophy and set of techniques that allow podiatrists to treat common foot problems using specially designed instruments which allow us to work through smaller openings in the skin compared to conventional hospital surgery. This results in less soft tissue trauma, which usually means less pain, less disability and a quicker return to normal activities for you, the patient.
It has also been referred to as minimal incision foot surgery, minimum incision foot surgery, and ambulatory foot surgery.
What kind of foot problems can be treated with minimally invasive foot surgery?
I have been using minimally invasive foot surgery to treat bunions, hammertoes, corns on the outside of toes (hard corns) and between toes (soft corns), calluses, bone spurs, metatarsal pain and ingrown toenails in my Toronto podiatry office, using local anaesthetic, for more than thirty years.
Where can I have these procedures performed?
The number of podiatrists who offer these techniques in North America is small but, thanks to the Academy of Ambulatory Foot and Ankle Surgery based in Philadelphia PA, the number is growing world-wide. I am a trustee of the Academy and am a clinical instructor. We run instructional courses once or twice a year where we train podiatrists and orthopedic surgeons from the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Orthopedic surgeons from Latin America and Europe have eagerly embraced our techniques. As European orthopedists enthusiastically write about our procedures, more North American podiatrists and orthopedists are taking notice.
I have been performing these procedures for more than thirty years.
To find out which bunion surgery would be best for you, please call my Toronto podiatry office for a private consultation at 416-486-9917.
