What Are the Advantages of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) Over Traditional Foot Surgery?
Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is always of interest to patients and surgeons alike. This less invasive type of surgery can result in better cosmetic results, quicker recovery times and less post-operative pain. Many diagnoses can be made by a thorough history and physical examination. Others require carefully thought out laboratory testing or imaging. Each person is treated with a multifaceted approach, including medical management, physical therapy, orthobiologics, shockwave therapy and functional medicine with time-tested and innovative surgical techniques. MIS treats foot and ankle conditions and deformities using very small incisions. In these procedures, Dr. Spiegl uses special instruments to cut bones under X-ray guidance and inserts screws through very small incisions.
