Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery

Minimally invasive bunion surgery is an alternative to traditional surgery that can reduce post-surgical scarring, swelling, pain and offers patients easier recovery.

A bunion is an enlargement of the bone or tissue around a joint at the base of the big toe or at the base of the little toe. Bunions often form when the joint is stressed over a prolonged period. Bunions can be painful and makes daily activities a challenge.

With minimally invasive bunion surgery, the surgeon can correct the deformity with minimal damage to the surrounding tissue.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery

With a tiny incision, patients only need a sedative during the procedure; the doctor often closes with a butterfly bandage instead of stitches; and there’s significantly less swelling at the incision site. This all leads to a much quicker recovery than with traditional bunion surgery.
