Minimally Invasive Surgery Q & A

What is minimally invasive surgery?

Minimally invasive surgery allows Dr. Cruz to treat common podiatry-related health problems using special tools and techniques that cause less damage than traditional open surgeries. In addition, minimally invasive surgery promises less pain, improved healing times, and a significantly lower risk of complications such as infections. 

At Gentle Foot Care Clinic, Dr. Cruz regularly performs minimally invasive surgery as an outpatient procedure. This means you don’t have to stay overnight in the hospital and can return home on the same day of your operation. 

What types of minimally invasive surgery do you perform?

At Gentle Foot Care Clinic, Dr. Cruz performs a variety of minimally invasive surgeries, including: 

  • Chevron osteotomies (for bunions)
  • Bunionette correction
  • Cheilectomy
  • Tendon debridements
  • Tendon release surgery
  • Haglund resections


Dr. Cruz also performs minimally invasive surgery to address ingrown toenails, flatfeet, and gout. 

Am I a candidate for minimally invasive surgery?

To determine if you’re a candidate for minimally invasive surgery, make an appointment at Gentle Foot Care Clinic. Following a physical examination of your feet and ankles, a review of your medical history, and a discussion of your goals for treatment, Dr. Cruz can develop a surgical plan that aligns with your individual needs. This might include one surgical operation or a combination of procedures to ease discomfort, promote healing, and improve your quality of life.

What type of minimally invasive surgery is right for me?

The only way to know what type of minimally invasive surgery is right for you is to make an appointment at Gentle Foot Care Clinic. Dr. Cruz will work with you to develop a treatment plan that eases your pain and improves your overall quality of life. Depending on your health history and background, surgery might not even be necessary. 

What is recovery like following minimally invasive surgery?

Following minimally invasive surgery, Dr. Cruz sends you home with a list of recovery instructions. In the days and weeks following your operation, make sure to follow Dr. Cruz’s instructions as closely as possible. This means getting plenty of rest, taking your medications as prescribed, and eating a healthy, balanced diet. Your recovery plan might also include physical therapy or regular visits to Gentle Foot Care Clinic. Make sure to follow Dr. Cruz’s advice and attend all of your follow-up appointments. The more you commit to treatment, the more likely you are to achieve positive, long-lasting results.
