Minimally Invasive Procedures
Many foot and ankle procedures may be performed through a series of tiny incisions (2-3 mm wide). Minimally invasive surgery generally results in decreased pain and swelling, faster recovery and minimal scarring.
Dr Slater is a leading exponent of minimally invasive surgical (MIS) techniques, having studied advanced foot and ankle surgery at New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery – ranked no. 1 in the US for orthopedics.
While bunions are extremely common, especially in women, they’re also very treatable using minimally invasive techniques that help to preserve the appearance of your foot. This generally means that you won’t need plaster or crutches, and in most cases, you’ll be able to start walking within 48 hours.
Charcot foot is a serious complication of diabetes that can result in deformity, disability or amputation. Dr Slater’s approach is to salvage the limb using the latest limb reconstructive techniques. The earlier you seek specialised treatment for this condition, the more options there are.
Many common sporting injuries (including ankle reconstruction and conditions requiring ankle arthroscopy) may be treated using minimally invasive surgical techniques. This form of keyhole surgery preserves the soft tissue of the foot, thereby speeding up the recovery process.
