MIS also known as Minimal Incision Surgery.
Dr. Pedram A. Hendizadeh and Dr. Evan A. Vieira have recently become certified in Minimally Invasive Surgery of the foot with the new Pro Step System by Wright Medical. They are the first on Long Island to be certified to do so. After a long period of training and education they have adapted these new modalities to benefit some of the patients that may qualify.
The doctors spent time at the Wright Medical headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee this past year to complete their training. They met with engineers, developers and other scientific staff to perfect their skills and give their input on future designs and innovations.
MIS (Minimally Invasive Surgery) foot surgery is not for everyone, but for those that are candidates it can be a wonderful way to achieve beautiful and lasting results with limited scaring, pain, and downtime.
Dr. Pedram A. Hendizadeh and Dr. Evan A. Vieira offer a full consultation during which patients can evaluated and assessed given all viable options for treatment for bunions, hammertoes or other foot issues. They use their expertise and experience to help you decide what procedure is best for you.
Many patients suffer with bunions for years and often avoid seeing a doctor out of fear they may require surgery. Rumors about painful, debilitating surgeries are just not true. Advancements in instrumentation, operative techniques and fixation methods have made bunion surgery very successful, painless and effective.
Minimally Invasive Surgical techniques can provide some patients with less scaring, minimal downtime, and an easier overall recovery. There are many techniques that can be used to correct bunions, and finding the right one for you can be confusing. Our doctors can help you make an informed and educated decision by reviewing all possible options with you.
Hammertoes are one of the most common, troublesome and unsightly issues people have with their feet. They can range from mild to severe, but pain or discomfort can result from all stages of their progression.
Minimally Invasive Surgical techniques can allow for them to be corrected with tiny incisions and virtually no pain. You can be back to what you love to do in little time.
MIS tailors bunion
A tailors bunion, or bump on the outside of your foot can be a painful condition that can affect shoes, walking and exercise. With new Minimally Invasive Foot Surgery techniques these can be corrected through an incision the length of a pencil eraser.
The latest innovations in surgical instrumentation allow our doctors to remove the deformity without completely opening the soft tissues. This allows for little to no scar, no downtime and great results.
