What is PROstep™?
PROstep™ is a minimally invasive surgical technique developed by Wright Medical, the leader in foot surgery.
How does PROstep™ work?
- PROstep™ trained surgeons use minimally invasive techniques that cause far less damage to your foot. The result may be less pain1 and faster recovery.2,3
- The PROstep™ system, used in more than 50,000 procedures worldwide, is optimized for these procedures by the leader in Foot & Ankle, Wright Medical.
- Only PROstep™ trained surgeons can offer PROstep™ MIS procedures
After surgery with PROstep™
PROstep™ surgery can both reduce pain and improve the appearance of your feet.1,2 However, for best results, see your doctor as scheduled and follow all recovery instructions carefully. As opposed to open surgery, your feet may feel much better sooner and you may feel you are ready to get back to your life. PLEASE FOLLOW YOUR SURGEON’S INSTRUCTIONS.
