Do you have a painful bunion that prevents you from wearing the shoes you want to wear? You may be a good candidate for minimally invasive bunion surgery. Dr. Neufeld is promoting a new, minimally invasive bunion surgery that he has a lot of experience with and now teaches other surgeons to perform.
Here are some of the benefits of this new minimally invasive bunion procedure compared to other techniques:
Approximately 33% of individuals in shoe-wearing populations have some degree of hallux valgus and the operative correction of a painful hallux valgus deformity is an effective treatment. It is also one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures with estimates of at least 210,000 operations performed in the United States every year. Despite this high number of surgical interventions, there are no clear guidelines or consensus as to which surgical intervention is the best; which one has the best results, which ones lead to the best outcomes and which ones have the least risks of complications.
Historically, bunion surgery has been painful with a long and uncomfortable recovery, but thanks to my minimally invasive bunion technique, you can be active quickly and without pain. There will be no cast, no crutches and you can start walking and driving right away. Most people return to work and activities much sooner than with other bunion correction procedures.
