Minimally invasive surgery is superior to the traditional bunion surgery that requires a breaking of the bone and prolonged recovery time. With minimally invasive surgery, the doctor can make small incisions and reduce the likelihood of a visible scar. Because the incision is small, doctors use a laparoscope, which is a tiny camera mounted on the end of a slender tube to “see” inside the surgical site.
Some of the advantages of minimally invasive surgery are:
The primary advantage of minimally invasive surgical techniques is that they involve less tissue damage, and therefore, healing and recovery are faster. In standard or “traditional” techniques where large incisions are used, many layers of tissue have large incisions that need to heal in order for full recovery to occur. As a result, the recovery process can take much longer. Minimally invasive techniques use small, targeted incision to minimize tissue damage for much faster healing, including far less swelling and discomfort. Plus, since the incision site is smaller, there's much less chance of infection to develop compared to standard large incision surgical techniques, and few or no stitches are needed to close the incision.
Dr. Glass uses a special imaging technique that relies on a fluoroscope to track the progress of surgical instruments while they're in the body. A fluoroscope uses x-rays to see through the soft tissues so the surgical instruments can be properly positioned for fast and accurate results with minimal pain.
Minimally invasive surgery requires a few stitches but patients usually can walk out of Dr. Glass’s office after the procedure is completed. Patients can return to work within a few days and hospitalization is most likely not necessary. Dr. Glass will discuss the healing requirements during your consultation.
