Percutaneous foot surgery is minimally invasive. It consists practicing the correction of impaired bone and soft tissues of the foot through a small incision of two or three millimeters, rather than a large incision (that is usually six inches) used in traditional open surgery.
It includes the application of new technologies designed to practice small incision surgery and it is performed under local anesthesia of the foot nerves that are sensitive to the specific surgical site with the patient relaxed and under the care of an anesthesiologist.
The bone structures are identified under vision image intensifier with low radiation or Fluoroscan.
No surgical intervention is without risk, whether derived from local anesthesia, or specific to the type of surgery performed, or the patient themselves.
More frequent applications: Bunions or Hallux Valgus, Metartasalgia, Morton's neuroma, Heel Spur, Tailor's Bunion, Mallet toe and Hammertoe, Tarsal tunnel syndrome, Sinus tarsi syndrome and Subungual Osteochondroma.Previous Next
