Minimally invasive surgical options

We are proud to offer several minimally invasive surgical options for the foot and ankle. This includes percutaneous or minimum incision surgeries to treat great toe joint arthritis, fractures, heel pain and Achilles tendonitis, joint fusions, and reconstructive osteotomies of the foot and ankle. 

Minimum incision surgical (MIS) bunion correction

If you have developed a bunion, and have exhausted all non-surgical options without relief, you may be a candidate for minimum incision surgical correction. Gundersen podiatrist, Bradley Abicht, DPM, FACFAS, is the only MIS trained surgeon in the region and is ready to meet with you to discuss our personalized plan.
