Minimally invasive surgery

Minimally invasive or percutaneous surgery is a relatively new technique suitable for many foot conditions.

 

The underlying deformity is approached through a 2‐3mm incision, thus leaving almost no trace of a scar.

 

Scientific evidence however clearly cautions against the liberal use of this procedure for simply any deformity.

 

We understand that careful clinical and X‐ray assessment by an experienced surgeon is mandatory to determine if this type of surgery can be performed appropriately and safely.

 

Currently we do not know of evidence that proves patients with this procedure experience less postoperative pain, faster recovery time, or higher satisfaction rate.
