Percutaneous surgery of the foot is a minimally invasive procedure that consists of correcting the damaged bone and soft tissues of the foot through a small incision of two or three millimeters, not large cuts (this is usually 5-6cm) which are used in traditional “open” surgery.
This includes the application of new technologies with the goal of performing a complete surgery through a small incision which is performed under local anesthetic of the foot nerve and under the supervision of an anesthesiologist.
There is less pain after surgery. The pain is minimal compared to traditional surgery because there is a lot less traumatized soft tissue. 95% patients said they did not need to take any painkillers. No specific implants that are fixed to adjust bones. It is not necessary to carry a cast, just wear a special shoe that allows the patient to travel on his feet. This allows patients to return to work immediately or within a very short time. Small incisions reduce potential complications and scarring.
Economic benefits: hospitalization is just a few hours.
