In minimally invasive procedures, surgeons use a variety of techniques to operate with less damage to the body than with open surgery. Minimally invasive foot and ankle procedures may be employed for some bunions, arthritis of the foot and ankle joints, ligament injuries, tendon injuries, bone bruises, broken bones, and many more.
In general, minimally invasive surgery is associated with less pain, a shorter hospital stay and fewer complications.
Both Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Viola perform the minimally invasive (MIS) bunion surgery. This innovative procedure offers shorter healing time, smaller scars (take a look at the some of the images above!), less pain and less swelling than the traditional bunion surgery.
