Many sporting injuries can be treated using minimally invasive surgery (MIS) or procedures including a minimally invasive component. In my practice, I start with the most conservative treatment options available, before progressing to minimally invasive procedures.
What types of sporting injuries can be treated with MIS?
- Ankle reconstruction
- Ankle conditions requiring arthroscopy
- High ankle sprains
- Some fractures (such as a Jones fracture)
- Turf toe.

Dr Gordon Slater is a highly-skilled surgeon specialising in foot and ankle conditions and sports injuries. Dr Slater is one of the first foot and ankle surgeons in Australia to adopt minimally invasive surgical techniques. He routinely uses MIS to treat a range of conditions, including bunions. MIS has many advantages including shorter operating times, reduced post-operative pain, reduced risk of infection, minimal scarring and better cosmetic outcomes.
