Have you been told you need foot surgery? If so, you might be overwhelmed by the prospect. However, your podiatrist can now perform minimally invasive surgery that carries far more benefits than risks. There are myriad ways to treat foot pain and injury, and your foot doctor will know which treatment is right for you. If your New Hampshire podiatrist is recommending foot, chances are you've already tried conservative treatments that haven't worked.
Why You Should Consider Minimally Invasive Foot Surgery
Your podiatrist would not recommend surgery unless it was his professional opinion that it is the best treatment option for you. You might be able to manage foot pain for a little while. But if you have an underlying issue the pain will only come back and can even cause damage to your foot.
Many foot problems cause pain in the toes, feet, ankles, and elsewhere in the body. If your foot pain is left untreated, your quality of life will continue to suffer and/or deteriorate. Foot surgery can be the permanent solution to your foot problems.
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery
Hearing the word "surgery" might make you nervous, but compared to traditional foot surgery, minimally invasive surgery is relatively easy and offers many benefits:
- Minimal bleeding and scarring. With traditional surgery, you might endure deep or intrusive cuts that can bleed and cause permanent scars. With minimally invasive surgery, a small incicision is made using special instruments similar to what a jeweler would use. There's little bleeding and scarring if any.
- Less pain and swelling. Because minimally invasive surgery is a minor procedure, you won't suffer the pain typically associated with traditional surgery.
- Fewer complications. Fewer, smaller cuts, less bleeding, and not being put under all mean there is less of a chance you'll endure pain, swelling, infection, and other complications that can arise during and after traditional surgery.
- Less downtime. Minimally invasive surgery such as HyProCure® usually takes only 15-20 minutes and requires far less recovery time than traditional surgery. You should be able to walk out of your podiatrist's office after the procedure and return to your normal activities in about a week, depending on how fast your own body typically heals.
