Foot Surgery

Dr. Mathews of Vancouver Podiatry focuses a substantial part of his practice on elective forefoot surgery. In particular, Dr Mathews has a keen interest in offering the latest procedures for bunions, hallux limitus, neuromas and hammertoes. The doctors at Vancouver Podiatry perform a specific type of minimally-invasive bunion surgery called ‘Tricorrectional Bunionectomy’. Dr. Mathews has recently incorporated both the StayFuse procedure for hammertoes and the Minimally Invasive Neuroma Decompression (MIND) for morton’s neuromas. Most of the procedures are performed under local anesthetic by oral sedation, in the clinic’s operating rooms. This reduces the risk of anesthesia-related complications and allows the patient to leave the clinic as soon as their surgery is complete.
