After all, if our bodies are temples, they must stand on solid foundations. Dr. Lanier has devoted her life’s work to ensuring the health and wellness of the foot and ankle and has grown into a leader in her field, operating four locations.

Our Brentwood expansion makes it so much easier for our patients from the south side to get in to see us!”

What Is Minimal Invasive Surgery?

This kind of surgery goes as the name implies. It is done with a small cut that doesn’t need many stitches if it needs any. It’s not very invasive and the podiatrists undertake the process by the use of specialized devices and tiny holes.

The Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery.

• Minor surgical scars.

• A quicker return to work and regular activities; shorter hospital stays.

• Less blood loss during surgery.

• Surgery takes less time.

• Less pain afterward.

• There is a lower chance of getting an infection.
