Thousands of men and women spend a
good bit of their lives agonizing over painful feet, trying one home
remedy after another, but, for whatever reasons, refusing to see a doctor.
Your inquiry regarding Minimal
Incision Surgery (MIS) might mean you've had enough. You've decided to
stop limping through life; soaking, rubbing and wiggling your feet in an
effort to find even temporary relief.
Minimal Incision Surgery is a
time-honored technique which your podiatric physician usually performs in
his office. In most cases, patients are not immobilized after undergoing
MIS, the recovery period is dramatically shortened and pain is minimized.
Very frequently, patients walk out of their podiatric physician's office
wearing the same shoes they wore in.
Unlike surgery performed in a
hospital, MIS requires a very small incision. Specially designed
instruments are used to correct the problem, whether bunions, hammertoes,
calluses, corns, warts, foot malfunction or a host of painful ailments.
Because the incision is tiny, stitches are frequently not required. You
may be advised to keep your foot elevated-or soak it--for a short period
of time after surgery. Time lost to recuperation, however, is minimized.
Nearly 2000 foot surgeons who
specialize in this technique are members of the Academy of Ambulatory Foot
Surgery. They are located in all 50 states, Canada and in Australia and
Of course, MIS is recognized by major
insurance carriers, as well as health care and governmental regulators.
It's time you sought relief by making
an appointment with a podiatric physician who is highly trained and
qualified to perform Minimal Incision Surgery.
It's a decision you will not regret.
