- Bunion Basics
- For Doctors
Osteotomy (break-n-shift of bones) procedures have been
the mainstream surgical approach to bunion correction.
However, this is a bunion center dedicated to minimal-traumatic
surgical principles and advocate non-bone-breaking bunion surgery
for good and proven reasons.
(From like-minded surgeon-friends in USA)
Bunion surgery is for function not for show because bunion deformity is
more of a function than cosmetic problem for the foot, to both surgeons and patients.
This 26 years old figure skating instructor had to stop coaching due to excruciating bunion pain in her skates. She was also falling easily in walking for no apparent reasons. Six months after non-bone-breaking bunion surgery of her both feet at the same time she could return to painless skating and had no more mysterious falling incidents either for more than 8 years already.
Due to severe bunion pain from performing in her high heel shoes and also low back pain from trying to compensate for her bunion pain, this young female singer underwent the non-bone-breaking bunion surgery of her feet at the same time and has been able to return to her 4-inch high heels about 6 months after surgery without any bunion or low back pain for more than 5 years now.
This 50 years old female professional golfer had to finally stop playing due to severe metatarsalgia of her feet and numbing pain of her toes. One year after the non-bone-breaking bunion surgery of her both feet at the same time she could return to competition with only mild residual metatarsal discomfort but much improved balance and power.
This 35 years old male Kung Fu master felt the biggest difference after the non-bone-breaking bunion surgery of his left foot was not just the complete pain-relief but also to his surprise he could even kick with much greater power than before with his right foot because his left foot is now feeling so much more stable and stronger in supporting his body for kicking.
