Minimally Invasive Surgery
What is Minimally Invasive Surgery?
Minimally invasive surgery refers to surgical procedures performed through very small incisions, requiring little to no stitching. Through these small incisions, a specially designed instrument is inserted to perform the operation.
These small incisions have minimal exposure to the surgical field, resulting in minimal or no injury to the adjacent tissue. Because of this, Dr. Zayas-Bazan is able to better control and predict a patient’s recovery and outcome.
Dr. Zayas-Bazan performs minimally invasive surgeries whenever possible, including bunions, bunionettes, hammertoes, removal of painful bony prominences, and Calcaneal slide osteotomies, which are part of flat foot procedures. Minimally invasive techniques also include subtalar and ankle joint arthroscopies, endoscopic plantar fasciotomies and Gastrocnemius recessions, all of which are common disorders found in ankle arthritis, plantar fasciitis and tight heel cords, respectively.
