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 make daily activities a challenge, as they can cause irritation, swelling and stiffness in the toe joints over time.

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.
