Video Transcript:

Dr. Darline Kulhan: Minimally Invasive Surgery involves using a very small instrument that is actually placed in a small tiny opening in the skin and you are able to take off a little bone spur, you are able to take off a large bunion.

Dr. Jeffrey Adler: The same type of results for traditional surgery with tiny openings: no scarring, no time off of your feet, very little in the way of discomfort, and quicker healing time.

Dr. Darline Kulhan: It works very nicely, patients have very little discomfort afterwards.

Karen (patient): I never felt terribly stable on my feet. My balance was not great, it was just a whole range of issues and my feet hurt. My toes didn’t seem to cooperate with each other very well and it didn’t seem like the entire system of my feet was doing what it was supposed to do.

Robin (patient): I had severe issues with my feet, specifically bunions, on each one of them. I did not enjoy the pain and it was time that I needed to take care of it.

Kristie (patient): I came in because I was having some foot pain on my right foot and also had what I thought was a corn on one of my toes. After my consultation and after some review it turned out it ended up being a little bit more severe. Then I found out that I had bunions, I had arthritis in my toe and also hammertoes.

Karen (patient): The bunion on my right toe was redone, I had tailor bunions on both feet so those were worked on, almost every toe has had either a hammertoe issue or a scar tissue issue that was keeping it from functioning. So nearly every toe has been worked on.

Kristie (patient): Two bunionectomies, one on each foot right and left, and then after that I had to have the HyProCure® procedures, one on each foot.

Robin (patient): I didn’t have much pain at all, I was very fortunate in that respect. The surgeries themselves were very timely, they got me in and out as they said they would.

Karen (patient): Minimally invasive in the sense that there was little scarring.

happy-feet-at-adler-footcareRobin (patient): I am 12 weeks into the recovery process on my right foot, 8 weeks into recovery process on my left foot. And I am wearing shoes in meetings, wearing sneakers around the outsides of those meetings, but I am able to get into a shoe and I actually went biking this past weekend.

Karen (patient): My toes [used to] hurt a lot and they don’t any longer.

Dr. Jeffrey Adler: The biggest thing I want to try to do with people is make them feel comfortable because if they feel comfortable they’re more likely to let us know what’s going on with them and that’s important for a good diagnosis.

Kristie (patient): I feel like I have become friends with them. I know you asked me in the beginning but the staff and especially the doctors are really helpful, forthcoming with any information, very accommodating, and I really appreciate their services.

Robin (patient): I found the staff to be incredibly attentive, they got to know me.

Karen (patient): They are extremely invested in doing for you everything that can be done to get you on your feet and functioning well.
