  3. The study probably is relevant especially considering that many European orthopedic surgeons have now "newly discovered" minimal incision surgery (MIS) with burrs, a type of surgery that was nearly completely abandoned by American podiatrists 20 years ago and now seems to be making a resurgence in populatiry. Seems that the same surgery groups that were saying that MIS verged on the border of malpractice are now lecturing about it being a useful technique. Don't you love podiatrists?! :wacko:
