Minimally Invasive Surgery for Foot Injuries

Pathologies as frequent as bunions, claw toes or neuromas can be treated in a simple way thanks to minimally invasive surgery, as Dr. Castillo Sánchez, specialist in podiatry, tells us in this article.

What does this type of surgery consist of?

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is a set of techniques for operating on the foot through millimetric incisions, through which the cutting and dissection material is introduced, keeping the operation and angulation under control with X-ray equipment.

When is it indicated?

Minimally invasive surgery can operate cases such as bunions, calluses under the nail, calluses between the fingers or hammertoes among other problems, so if you find yourself in any of these situations and does not allow you to comfortably follow your routine it would be advisable to go to a professional to study your case.

What kind of advantages does it offer?

Some of the advantages of minimally invasive surgery are that local anesthesia is always used and not general anesthesia, it leaves less aggressive scars, recovery from the operation is immediate so that post-surgical time is minimized and hospitalization is not necessary, fixation is achieved through bandages and the use of special post-surgical shoes, it is virtually painless and reduces the risk of deep vein thrombosis.
