Is Minimally Invasive Foot Surgery Right For You?

Minimally invasive foot surgery has gained popularity in recent years. The main reason for this is that recovery from minimally invasive procedures is quick. In most cases, the patient can return to work or resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. On the other hand, surgical procedures requiring larger incisions have longer recovery times. The patient has to wait at least 1-3 months before he/she can perform normal activities without any restrictions. Also, minimally invasive techniques cause less trauma to soft tissues. Also, it leaves the foot with little to no visible scars.
