The Arthrex Minimally Invasive Bunionectomy is a minimally invasive operation performed through extremely small incisions. This operation will permanently repair your bunion and help you get back on your feet sooner.
The Arthrex Minimally Invasive Bunionectomy realigns the bone structures of the big toe while preserving a healthy healing environment to ensure a speedy recovery. Using Arthrex’s sophisticated process and instruments, your podiatrist can tailor a 3D repair to your particular bunion. This kind of surgery uses only microscopic “pinhole” incisions to achieve triplanar correction without fusing joint or unnecessary hardware, thereby reducing your bunion pain with an aesthetically pleasing solution.
Minimally invasive surgery has been scientifically proved to yield the same or better-corrected outcomes than other more aggressive surgeries, but with significant advantages. In addition to the fact that your bunion will be eliminated, the Arthrex Minimally Invasive Bunionectomy offers several other essential benefits, as stated below;
- Enables you to walk immediately after surgery
- Performed with small incisions leave nearly no scar
- Less postoperative discomfort, edema, and stiffness
- It helps you to maintain movement in the toe.
- Promotes a favorable healing environment with little disruption of soft tissue
With the Arthrex Minimally Invasive Bunionectomy, patients recover up to eight weeks faster than with traditional surgery. Most patients can walk after surgery without a knee scooter or crutches and can return to daily activities sooner.
