Pathway and foot surgery on Grasse
If you live in the municipality of Grasse or its surroundings (Valbonne, Mouans Sartoux, Roquefort les Pins etc), you may be looking for an orthopedist in Grasse to benefit from foot surgery in Grasse or orthopedic surgery in Grasse.
Julien Lopez offers you a complete follow-up in his office of Mandelieu-La-Napoule from the first consultation to the recovery.
The surgeon begins by welcoming you to his office for a first consultation. The purpose of this examination is to assess the deformation and determine the condition involved. In order to confirm the diagnosis, Dr. Julien Lopez can prescribe additional medical imaging exams: ultrasound, CT, MRI, X-ray…
Once the diagnosis is made, the foot specialist will prescribe the most appropriate treatment for you. If non-surgical treatment is possible, it can prescribe the wearing of orthopedic soles, plantar orthotics, performing infiltrations or conducting physiotherapy as appropriate. Note that non-surgical treatment is always the first-line treatment.
In cases where it takes more than medical treatment, Dr.Julien Lopez turns to foot surgery. This foot surgeon is a specialist in minimally invasive surgery.
Its use has many benefits for the patient:
- Less risk of complications
- Faster recovery
- Reduced scar size
- Reduction of postoperative pain and swelling
- Ability to return home faster
Minimally invasive foot surgery has the advantage of being performed on an outpatient basis. The patient has the possibility to reach his home only a few hours after the procedure.
This surgical technique combines the use of gestures performed in percutaneous and the use of conventional surgery which is a very particular method.
Gestures made possible by percutaneous surgery
All gestures made on the tendons and joint envelopes can be done percutaneously. Julien Lopez is also able to reaxer the big toe by performing a percutaneous osteotomy. Any correction of a moderate deformation, a deformation of the toes in claw and metatarsalgia is also possible thanks to the percutaneous technique.
Gestures to be done in the open
However, the use of conventional surgery is still necessary for certain gestures. Large deformations of the foot need open-air gestures to be corrected. The same applies to joint lesions of the head of the first metatarsal.
As much as possible, Dr. Julien Lopez favors the use of minimally invasive surgery in order to achieve these gestures with reduced tissue aggression. Although these specific techniques are common and mostly practiced by foot surgeons. Indeed, many Grasse thumb surgeons use the same techniques to have smaller incisions.
