Bunions Surgery – without crutches!
Minimal Invasion Foot surgery has many benefits for patients compared with traditional open surgery and is based on using incisions which are smaller than the diameter of a thin pencil.
There is less tissue damaged during surgery and the risk of scarring is much reduced. Therefore recovery from bunion surgery is expected to be more predictable, with a very low risk of infection.
Minimally invasive bunion surgery is completely different since other techniques involve leaving a titanium wire in the patient’s foot for four weeks after surgery and often metal screws are left for life.
This technique is based on established bunion surgery, adapting new technology to perform the procedure in the most minimally invasive way with no hardware left in place.
By using established techniques, Dr. Rosenbaum is able to maintain the anatomy and the mechanics of the foot and in so doing, expect a more predictable recovery, combined with the benefits of less invasive surgery.
