Atlantic Orthopaedic Specialists Surgeon Michael A. Campbell Brings Significant Advance for Minimally Invasive Foot and Ankle Surgery to the Region
A revolutionary new device allows many foot and ankle surgeries to be done through a ¼ inch incision.
Old fashioned bunion surgery has a bad reputation for being painful and unreliable – big ugly incisions, long recoveries, crutches, casts, and weekly doctor visits. The latest technology in bunion surgery has radically changed all of this, most notably the need for long incisions and the resulting scars on the foot!
Until recently, open surgery has been required to correct bunions, bone spurs, flat feet, fallen arches, big toe arthritis and multiple other painful foot conditions. Now a new surgical tool, FDA approved in the spring of 2017, is available in the United States. Dr. Michael A. Campbell, an Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgeon with Atlantic Orthopaedic Specialists, is the first in Hampton Roads trained to use this device. He is bringing minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for several common, painful foot conditions to the area.
