How mini bunion surgery from your podiatrists in Crofton, MD, and Woodbridge, Chantilly, and Sterling, VA, can help your feet
If you have a large, painful bunion that is impacting your life, it’s only natural to think about having bunion surgery. Now, there is a new technique which can get you up on your feet faster, with less pain. It’s called mini bunion surgery.
The foot doctors at Potomac Podiatry Group provide a wide range of foot and ankle services, including mini bunion surgery. They have several convenient office locations in Crofton, MD, and Woodbridge, Chantilly, and Sterling, VA, to help your feet.
Mini bunion surgery provides some amazing benefits when compared to traditional bunion surgery, known as a bunionectomy. Consider that mini bunion surgery:
- Uses a much smaller incision, so the tiny scar is virtually unnoticeable
- Is far less invasive, so you experience far less pain
- Is easier to recover from, so you can get back to your active life
Mini bunion surgery involves making a small incision, usually only 1 ½ inch to 1 inch long, on the side of your foot. The bunion is removed surgically, and a titanium implant is placed in your foot to stabilize and realign your foot. Then, the incision is sutured closed, and your mini bunion surgery is complete.
Mini bunion surgery can be performed while you are asleep, or you can be awake, with just leg anesthesia so you remain completely comfortable throughout the procedure. If you choose to be sedated, you will need to bring someone with you to drive you home.
Many patients are able to walk immediately after the procedure, with the help of a special shoe.
