Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)

Minimally invasive surgeryIt can be daunting to undergo surgery. How long will the recovery take? Will I have to be put under general anesthesia? How will I care for myself or go to work? These are all questions you may have asked yourself when faced with the possibility of surgery to correct a foot or ankle problem. Thankfully, due to advances in medicine, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is now an option for many ailments that have caused pain and left people on the sidelines.

MIS is generally done on an outpatient basis, requiring only local anesthesia or conscious sedation. Recovery is much quicker than traditional surgery which means less pain, less downtime, and lower risk of infection. In addition to these benefits, you can also expect a more appealing cosmetic outcome as well because the incisions are much smaller. MIS is usually cheaper than traditional surgeries because general anesthesia and a stay in the hospital won’t be necessary.
