Minimally invasive foot surgery – often called ‘keyhole surgery’ – has been in existence for decades and has now developed into a tried and proven category of surgical practice.
Benefits of minimally invasive surgery
Keyhole surgery allows for less trauma to the surrounding tissues, this in turn produces less swelling and less pain. This ultimately leads to decreased pain, reduced complications and quicker recovery.
The surgery is carried out as a day surgery case and you can walk on the foot immediately after leaving the day hospital. Avoiding overnight stays in hospital allows us to decrease the problems that can occur with hospitilisation, plus keep costs down.
