Dr. Galati believes in minimal incision foot surgery when applicable. Bunions and other surgeries are accomplished through a small opening sometimes not even requiring a stitch. He has performed in his office over four thousand ambulatory cases of the bunion and other related surgeries over the last seventeen years.

The technique is a highly advanced form of foot surgery. This surgical technique keeps the patient more mobile after the procedure without the use of pins or screws. Dr. Galati doesn’t view the use of pins and screws as a bad thing. He just feels he can accomplish the same results without the use of this type of fixation. The good doctor has employed a host of cutting-edge technology to help treat his patients’ foot surgery and vein care.

Remember, you are his primary concern, and he will do everything he can to help relieve your painful foot deformities. Call today and experience a truly committed medical professional.
