Our caring foot and ankle surgeon in Niles and Berwyn, Illinois, can help you get back on your feet.
MINIMALLY INVASIVE FOOT SURGERY (MIS)
Many foot conditions, pain, and problems can be eliminated without surgery. Dr. Shermi Parikh takes pride in her conservative approach – except in extreme cases, she’ll exhaust every other option before resorting to an elective (and more expensive) surgery.
In cases where surgery is the best option, Dr. Parikh practices a minimally invasive surgical technique. This effective technique, involving small surgical incisions, requires minimal to no stitching, which shortens surgical time and makes recovery more manageable.
Benefits of MIS:
- Shorter surgical time
- Less scaring
- Less pain
- Less injury to soft tissue
- More manageable recovery time
Our feet are one of our most important and most used body parts - when problems occur in our feet and ankles, we feel it in the rest of the body. Improper foot and ankle alignment, in particular, can have widespread affects throughout the body.
Common symptoms of a misaligned foot or ankle:
- Growing pains and shin splints
- Bunions and hammertoes
- Heel pain/planter fasciitis
- Tendon and ligament strain
- Knee, hip, and back pain
HyProCure is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that corrects foot and ankle deformities at their root cause. A titanium stent is placed in the space between the ankle and heel bones to realign and stabilize the hind foot. The procedure can significantly reduce (or potentially eliminate) the resulting pain of misalignment. HyProCure patients are typically back to normal walking within a few weeks.
Dr. Parikh is one of a selected group of doctors who perform the HyProCure implant surgery. This implant can help correct flexible flat foot condition with a much faster recovery than the traditional technique of fusing the bone. The implant has been FDA approved for over 12 years and is used in patients all over the world. Come in today for a consult to see if it's right for your foot.
