New minimally invasive foot surgery for mild to moderate arthritis of the big toe

March 2010

Consultant orthopaedic surgeon Mr Fred Robinson is now performing the latest minimally invasive forefoot surgery to treat the arthritic big toe at the Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital.

Traditional forefoot surgery requires a 4-8cm incision over the top of the foot. The excess bone is then removed.

The latest minimally invasive method allows the surgeon to perform bony surgery in a closed manner, with the 4-8 cm incision being reduced to just several 3mm incisions. As a result the patient can have all the benefits of the open surgery, with much less damage to the skin and soft tissue and a speedier recovery.
