Dr. Wahid Rezaie has focused on innovative methods for the treatment of foot and ankle disorders such as Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS).
Minimally invasive surgery refers to a type of surgery to correct foot deformities like hallux valgus and hammertoe, through tiny incisions that requires little or no stitching. Many foot surgeries can be carried out safely and effectively using these techniques, which are less invasive. This also means that many operations can be performed under local anesthetic. Recovery from minimally invasive surgery is usually quicker and less painful than in a traditional open surgery. Patients are mobile from day one after surgery and generally return to most activities from six weeks.
