Minimally Invasive Foot Surgery
(Key Hole)

Minimally Invasive Foot Surgery uses the latest advanced technology to treat foot and ankle pain caused by a variety of conditions. Special surgical instruments, devices and advanced imaging techniques are used to visualise and perform the surgery through small incisions. The aim of MIFS is to minimise damage to the muscles and surrounding structures enabling faster recovery and less pain.

The benefits of MIFS over the traditional open foot surgery include:

  • Small surgery scars
  • Less risk of infection
  • Minimal blood loss during the surgery
  • Minimal post-operative pain
  • Quicker recovery
  • Shortens the hospital stay
  • Quicker return to work and normal activities

Some of the foot and ankle conditions treated using MIFS technique include:

  • Bunions
  • Hammer toes
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Big toe arthritis
  • Flat feet
  • Ankle Arthritis
  • Achilles Tendon Rupture
  • Toe Deformities

Procedure

Minimally invasive foot surgery is performed through very small incisions. Through these small incisions, segmental tubular retractors and dilators are inserted to retract muscles away from the operative area and provide access to the affected area of the foot. This minimises the damage to the muscles and soft tissues and lessens blood loss during the surgery.

Risk and Complications

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved with minimally invasive foot surgery.  The risks and complications of MIFS may include infection, bleeding, nerve injury as well as complications due to general anaesthesia.
