Common Foot and Ankle Procedures and Surgeries

Our orthopedic surgeons rely on minimally invasive arthroscopic surgeries that reduce the length of hospital stays and improve rehabilitation time. As opposed to open surgery, arthroscopic procedures require smaller incisions and specially designed surgical tools. Arthroscopy involves miniature cameras that allow the surgeon to visualize the area instead of using traditional open surgery.
