Minimally Invasive Surgery
When foot and ankle problems do not respond to conservative treatment, Dr Roussel specializes in Minimally Invasive Surgery for Achilles tendon repair, plantar fasciotomy, mid-foot (Lisfranc) fracture repair, heel cord lengthening, Jones fracture fixation and bunionectomy.
What are the advantages?
Compared with traditional open surgical techniques for foot and ankle surgery, Minimally Invasive Surgery utilizes much smaller incisions which minimize discomfort and maintain mobility during the postoperative period. This leads to:
- Reduced surgical time
- Less damage to tissues
- Less internal scarring
- Minimal external scarring
- Less joint stiffness
- Quicker recovery time
- Faster return to work and normal activities
