Minimally Invasive Foot Surgery

What types of foot problems require surgery? 

It depends on how severe your foot problem is. Dr. Williams works closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan for you and your foot problem. 

He’ll initially exhaust more conservative, nonsurgical options. However, some cases may require surgery. 

If a foot problem persists and doesn’t respond to conservative methods of treatment, surgery can treat: 

  • Bunions
  • Flat foot
  • Diabetic feet
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Chronic inflammation or pain

Dr. Williams and the team at North Mississippi Foot Specialists proudly offer minimally invasive foot surgery that makes treatment simpler and more comfortable than ever before. 

How does minimally invasive foot surgery work? 

Minimally invasive foot surgery offers several advantages over traditional surgical techniques Modern advances allow Dr. Williams to perform procedures on issues, such as severe bunions, with much smaller incisions and a shorter operative time. 

The main advantage of minimally invasive foot surgery is the ability to perform correction with minimal disruption or trauma to the overlying skin and soft tissue.

Is minimally invasive foot surgery safe? 

Yes, these foot procedures are perfectly safe. As is the case with all medical procedures, there are potential side effects, such as bruising, swelling, or bleeding at the incision site. However, these should subside on their own very quickly and cause no problems. 

What is the recovery like after minimally invasive foot surgery? 

The beauty of minimally invasive foot surgery is that the recovery is much shorter and easier on you than traditional, more invasive methods. 

At North Mississippi Foot Specialists, Dr. Williams and the team are proud that their minimally invasive foot surgery techniques offer quicker healing and less downtime. 

To help you along during your recovery, the team can prescribe pain medication through the practice’s in-house pharmacy. However, in some cases, you may not even need pain medication during your recovery. 

Since each patient is different with unique needs, Dr. Williams will outline to you a personalized recovery plan and help guide you through it.
