Foot and Ankle Arthroscopy in Memphis
Injuries of the foot and ankle are frequently diagnosed with imaging during an examination by Dr. Nathan Lucas, our podiatrist in Memphis, TN. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used by Dr. Lucas to diagnose and treat injuries of the foot and ankle—it is to confirm the diagnosis. It can also be used to treat conditions within the joints, as long as they are not too complicated.
With the use of foot and ankle arthroscopy, Dr. Lucas can perform treatment on an outpatient basis. Through tiny incisions to the ankle and foot, arthroscopy offers an array of benefits compared to traditional surgery because of its minimally invasive nature, such as:
- Shorter recovery times
- Less bleeding and scarring
- Smaller incisions
- No cutting of muscles or tendons
- Less pain and discomfort
