Dr.Wagner is proud to be a continued pioneer in minimally invasive foot and ankle surgery. He continues to help lead the effort to bring this innovative surgical philosophy to the world. He has completed and continues extensive specialized training to employ the advanced techniques necessary to perform these intricate and delicate procedures in his state-of-the-art office-based surgical suite.
If you’re wondering how are we able to perform these surgeries through tiny little ‘key holes’, the answer lies in something called a fluoroscope, an advanced x-ray machine to see inside the body without having to make large incisions. Dr.Wagner is able to complete complex and delicate procedures without exposing the patient to any unnecessary risks.
While surgery is often a last resort for treating conditions that cause pain or are unsightly in the feet and ankles, Dr.Wagner will suggest minimally invasive surgery whenever possible to provide a better patient outcome without the risks associated with a traditional ‘open’ surgery. While there are some risks associated with any kind of surgery, including minimally invasive techniques, compared to an open surgical procedure, the risks are significantly reduced.
