Minimally invasive surgery or MIS techniques have made great advances lately. These allow for decreased healing time and less scaring while still achieving great results. The most important factor when deciding on having and MIS procedure is to make sure that you are the right candidate for this type of intervention. This is a decision your doctor will make and explain to you. For example, some bunions are to sever or advanced to be successfully corrected with MIS. However, if caught early on they might be.
Bunions, hammertoes, tailors bunions, neuromas and spurs can all be corrected with limited or no down time and almost no scar! Make sure you have a provider who is well trained, experienced and knowledge on all types of procedures. Never be afraid to ask questions and read reviews before making your final decision.
