Foot and ankle procedures performed by podiatry experts at miVIP include, but are not limited to:
Radiofrequency Ablation — This minimally invasive procedure utilizes radio wave technology to relieve nerve pain related to joint problems. The surgeon inserts a small needle into the nerve area, then sends radiofrequency waves via the needle to the affected nerve. The intense heat cauterizes the affected nerve, desensitizing it to stop it from generating pain.
Bunionectomy — A bunion is a bony protrusion where the big toe meets the foot. A bunion causes swelling, redness and pain. During a bunionectomy, the surgeon removes the bony protrusion, often with a arthroplasty, and repairs any ligaments that have been stretched or damaged.
Foot & Ankle Surgery — Our podiatrists use various minimally invasive techniques and procedures, including fracture reduction, fusion surgery or joint replacement surgery to repair plates and screws are generally used to repair and set the bones.
Joint Fusion — This surgical procedure is used to correct misalignment of the joint that has occurred due to osteoarthritis deformities or previous injuries. For fusion surgery, joints are generally realigned and fused together laparoscopically with with rods, screws, plates or pins.
Ankle Debridement — For patients suffering from osteoarthritis in ankles, debridement can improve the condition by removing diseased or damaged bone cartilage that surrounds the ankle joint, causing problems.
