Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) treats foot and ankle conditions and deformities using very small incisions. In these procedures, the surgeon uses special instruments to cut bones under X-ray guidance through very small incisions. Advantages of minimally invasive surgery over traditional surgery include faster healing, smaller scars, and less stiffness. Dr. Farley has been certified in Minimally Invasive Surgery through specific courses.
Recovery is often faster with minimally invasive procedures compared to open procedures. Some weightbearing can be allowed immediately after surgery, but this depends on the procedure you are having done.
