Foot surgery in Marseille: the use of percutaneous technique

Dr. Lopez worked for a few months as a foot surgeon in Marseille at the Clinique Juge. Julien Lopez is a specialist in minimally invasive and percutaneous foot surgery. This approach allows patients to benefit from many advantages in the context of surgery. In fact, minimally invasive surgery can combine traditional open-air surgery with percutaneous gestures.

Julien Lopez takes care to adapt to each condition he treats. As a former foot orthopedic surgeon in Marseille, he offers several techniques of foot surgery in Marseille: the use of minimally invasive surgery, conventional surgery or percutaneous and arthroscopic surgery.

Reduced scars

Percutaneous surgery has the advantage of limiting the size of incisions made through the skin. This reduces the amount of tissue damage and reduces scar size.

Faster recovery and pain control

The use of this surgical technique also allows the patient to benefit in a number of ways. First, the healing process is facilitated and accelerated since the scars are smaller than those caused by traditional surgery. Then, the swelling caused by the operation is reduced in comparison to those present in open-pit surgery. Pain is also reduced. In general, it has been found that patients who are operated on with minimally invasive surgery have faster recovery than those operated on with traditional surgery.

Reduced hospitalization time and walking possible

Minimally invasive surgery is also the advantage of being performed on an outpatient basis. Once the operation is complete, the patient can return home after only a few hours. During an outpatient hospitalization, the patient is kept in the recovery room until the effects of anesthesia completely disappear. They can then walk and go back home with the help of a medical shoe.

Non-surgical treatments offered by the orthopedic surgeon in Marseille

Dr. Lopez was trained in part by an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in foot surgery in Marseille. When the condition and deformity are mild, non-surgical treatment may be offered. This type of treatment is in no way a substitute for surgery and does not constitute a correction treatment for deformity. However, it allows to effectively relieve the patient in case of slight deformation.

Non-surgical treatments include: orthopedic soles, orthotics and orthopedic shoes. These procedures are intended to distribute weight on the foot and relieve localized pain and pressure.

Orthopedic surgery in Marseille without pain

Whatever orthopedic surgery in Marseille that you want to perform, Dr. Julien Lopez does everything possible to optimize pain management. To do this, he sometimes uses local anaesthesia. This technique consists in temporarily suppressing the sensation in the area being operated on. The anesthesiologist then injects local anesthetics near the nerves to numb the affected area. With the use of this technique, it is possible to extend the effects of anesthesia up to 72 hours after the intervention in order to effectively relieve the patient (peripheral nerve catheter use).

Depending on the type of procedure performed, the surgeon may also prescribe an anti-inflammatory painkiller treatment when you leave the clinic.

Now based in Nice in the PACA region, Dr Julien Lopez was trained alongside the best foot surgeons in Marseille.
