Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery is a highly specialised technique that permits correction of defomity in the foot without having to use traditional scars.

The underlying bony cuts still take the same length of time to heal, but because all the incsions are made through tiny stab incision.

The swelling and risk of infection are considerably less than with open surgery and as a result the pain is also less.

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is used extensively in the forefoot, to correct bunions, hammer and claw toes and for arthrtis of the big toe (hallux rigidus).

Is is also used as part of bigger procedures, e.g. cavovarus (high arch) and pes planus (flat foot) corrections.

Most surgeries are performed as a day case under a regional block, with or without sedation.
Miss Miller performs Minimally Invasive Surgery routinely within her NHS practice.
She is one of a select few Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgeons in the UK trained in MIS surgery.
