Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)

Mr Adam Budgen is able to perform Minimally Invasive Surgeries for different diseases, injuries and problems. MIS techniques allow surgeons to perform procedures that limit damage to the surrounding tissues, theoretically decreasing postoperative morbidity, speeding recovery time, reducing pain and scarring and shortening the time for return to normal activities.

What is Minimally Invasive Surgery of the foot and ankle?

A minimally invasive surgery typically involves use of arthoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or large scale display panel, and is carried out through the skin or through a body cavity or anatomical opening.

By use of a MIS, a patient may require only a band-aid on the incision, rather than multiple stitches or staples to close a large incision. This usually results in less infection, a quicker recovery time and shorter hospital stays, or allow outpatient treatment. 

Benefits

Equipment

Special medical equipment may be used, such as fiber optic cables, miniature video cameras and special surgical instruments handled via tubes inserted into the body through small openings in its surface. The images of the interior of the body are transmitted to an external video monitor and the surgeon has the possibility of making a diagnosis, visually identifying internal features and acting surgically on them.

Risks

General risks and complications include the following:
