What is Minimally Invasive Foot Surgery?

Minimally invasive foot surgery is a revolutionary approach to treating various foot conditions with precision and minimal disruption to surrounding tissues. Unlike traditional open surgeries, which involve large incisions, this advanced technique involves making incisions less than 3 mm in size. Through these tiny openings, our highly skilled surgeon, Dr. Wadehra, utilizes specialized instruments to address the underlying foot problem with utmost precision and care.

Bunions

Bunions are bony bumps that form at the base of the big toe, causing it to point inward toward the other toes. They can be painful and make walking uncomfortable. Bunions often develop due to genetic factors, improper footwear, or repeated stress on the foot. They may start as a minor cosmetic issue but can progress to cause significant discomfort and difficulty in wearing shoes.

Tailors Bunions

Tailors bunions, also known as bunionettes, are similar to regular bunions but form at the base of the pinky toe. They can cause pain and discomfort when wearing shoes. Like bunions, tailors bunions are often influenced by genetics, ill-fitting footwear, or pressure on the foot. The condition can worsen over time, leading to increased pain and difficulty in finding comfortable shoes.

Hammertoes

Hammertoes are deformities that cause one or more toes to bend downward instead of lying flat. They can be painful and make it challenging to find comfortable footwear. Hammertoes often result from muscle imbalances in the foot, causing the affected toe to bend abnormally. The condition can be aggravated by wearing tight shoes or high heels.

Heel Spurs

Heel spurs are calcium deposits that form on the underside of the heel bone. They can cause sharp pain in the heel, especially when walking or standing. Heel spurs often develop as a result of excessive strain on the foot’s ligaments and muscles, leading to inflammation and the formation of the bony growth. While heel spurs are common, not everyone with them experiences pain.

Bone Spurs

Bone spurs are extra bony growths that can form on any bone, including those in the foot. They can cause pain and limit joint movement. Bone spurs in the foot can develop as a response to joint damage caused by conditions such as osteoarthritis. The growths can lead to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility in the affected joint.
