What Is Minimally-Invasive Bunion Surgery

Minimally-Invasive Bunion surgery is a modern technique where we make tiny incisions and use small instrumentation in order to gain access to the foot and treat bunion deformities of all sizes. By disrupting as little of the body’s natural tissues as possible, the patient has a faster recovery, minimal scarring and can typically walk the same day as having the procedure.

Information listed on this page is only meant to guide you and it is always recommended to visit a Foot and Ankle specialist or NYC podiatrist for proper diagnosis and evaluation.

WHAT IS A BUNION?

A bunion deformity is a foot deformity where a bump forms at the base of your big toe causing pain and discomfort in shoewear. Often your second toe deviates towards your second toe in a bunion deformity. Your NYC bunion doctor will diagnose the cause of your condition which can range from poor fitting shoewear, tight muscles, foot type (flat-Feet) or hereditary causes just to name a few.

CAUSES OF BUNIONS

Hereditary predisposition and tight fitting shoes are the most common causes of bunion deformities. Bunions can also be caused by flat feet, tight muscles and traumatic injury leading to imbalance at the big toe joint. Those who wear high heels have an increased likelihood of developing bunions over time. Your NYC minimally-Invasive bunion surgeon will evaluated you and diagnose the cause and best treatment for you individual case.
