Manhattan, New York (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
Adler Footcare of Greater New York offers cosmetic foot surgery for a variety of foot problems such as bunions, hammertoes, ingrown toenails, and toenail fungus. The surgery on the foot, ankle or lower leg is performed by Dr. Adler, one of 12 professors of minimally invasive surgery in the world. Seventy-five surgeries were performed on a regular basis at Adler Footcare in 2011 and 2012.
“One of our core services here at Adler Footcare is cosmetic foot surgery, a minimally invasive procedure that is performed by making a small skin incision,” said Dr. Jeffery Adler, owner of Adler Footcare. “It’s minimally invasive because the incision made by the foot surgeon, usually about 1/8 inch in length, is just large enough to use the special medical instruments needed for the surgery.”
Dr. Adler is named as one of 12 professors of minimally invasive surgery in the world by the Academy of Ambulatory Foot and Ankle Surgery. Adler Footcare in midtown Manhattan has a fully accredited podiatric OR where the minimally invasive cosmetic foot surgeries are performed on a regular basis by an experienced foot surgeon.
The most common problems corrected by cosmetic foot surgery are bunions, calluses, hammertoes, corns, ingrown toenails, heel pain and neuromas. A foot surgeon can perform the cosmetic foot surgery in the doctor’s office which is more convenient and less expensive than a hospital or surgery center.
Other advantages of minimally invasive cosmetic foot surgery are reduced scarring, less trauma and post-operative pain to the foot, and faster healing. After the procedure, a foot surgeon will apply a bandage and usually a post-surgical shoe to wear. Patients report being able to quickly return to normal activities.
"Dr. Adler actually performed two surgeries for me, one on each foot three months apart, and thank goodness he did,” said Yanick S., a patient at Adler Footcare. “He has great bedside manners…the day after the surgery he actually called my home to check in to make sure everything was going well, and from time to time he calls to make sure everything is still going great."
