Endoscopic surgery is minimally invasive surgery that can often be used in place of traditional open surgery. It may be used to treat some conditions in which conservative treatment failed to provide relief.
Doctors performing endoscopic surgery use a long, flexible tube with a camera and a light attached at the end. While the camera can often enable a surgeon to more closely see the surgical area, especially in the small areas of the foot, procedures should be performed by well-trained and experienced foot surgeons like the doctors at Anderson Podiatry Center.
It can be used to treat:
- Severe cases of plantar fasciitis
- Tarsal tunnel conditions (nerve release surgery)
With endoscopic surgery, operations are less traumatic, incisions are smaller, recovery is quicker, and there are fewer side effects.
