Q. What is ambulatory foot and ankle surgery?
A. Ambulatory foot and ankle surgery, in most cases, is performed in an outpatient surgical center, outpatient hospital, or doctorss office under local anesthetic. Small incisions are made in the patients skin and specially designed instrumentation is inserted into the incised areas. The entire procedure is performed through this tiny incision. At the conclusion of the surgery, few stitches may be used to close the opening and a small bandage protects the area. The patient generally leaves the office, surgery center, or outpatient hospital walking wearing a post-operative shoe.
