Bunion sp

A bunion is a bony protuberance on the outer surface or at the base of the big toe. The major causes of bunions are heredity and wearing of ill-fitting shoes. The condition often results in swelling, pain around the big toe and discomfort while walking due to restricted movements of the big toe.

Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery

Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery sp

Minimally invasive bunion surgery, also known as keyhole bunion surgery, is a procedure to treat a foot condition called a bunion or hallux valgus. During minimally invasive bunion surgery, a few small incisions are made to access the bone around the bunion, as opposed to a much larger incision made during an open bunion surgery that cuts across layers of tissue around the bone, causing more postoperative pain, a larger scar, and damage to the surrounding soft tissues.

Bunionette Surgery

Bunionette Surgery sp

Bunionette surgery is indicated as a last resort when conservative measures fail to resolve the painful symptoms. These measures can include wearing a shoe with a wide toe box, using anti-inflammatory medications, applying ice to reduce swelling, wearing orthotics, or participating in physical therapy.


Bunionectomy sp

A bunionectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a bunion. A bunion, also called a hallux valgus, is an enlargement of bone or soft tissues around the joint at the base of the big toe that results in the formation of a bump.
