Syndesmosis Bunion Surgery is a potential game-changer in surgical bunion correction. After 35 years and over 2,000 feet, the Center for Syndesmosis Bunion Surgery proves there is better way to healthy, bunion-free feet. Repeatedly. Consistently.
If the root of the complex bunion problem is a ligament failure causing bones to collapse, the most logical way to reverse the problem is equally through ligaments. The point of origin reveals a simple solution.
The metatarsus primus varus (MVP) is created when the first metatarsal gives in to the constant stress of daily activity and starts to be pushed away from the other four metatarsals. The bones of the medial column fall apart and the sesamoid bones become displaced.
The displaced first metatarsal can be readily and naturally re-erected to its normal position by simply tying it to the adjacent second metatarsal bone with absorbable surgical sutures without cutting any bones or fusing any joints.
A unique surgical technique creates an environment that induces the natural formation of a new ligament – the Syndesmosis – to re-stabilize the first metatarsal and prevent bunion recurrence. After 3 months the sutures fully dissolve and are absorbed by the body.
Once displaced bones are holistically re-aligned and re-stabilized, the normal mechanics of the entire medial column can then be restored. The arches reform and strengthen, and the big toe regains function as if the bunion had not existed before.
Your body’s own ability to heal itself is the key to restoring and retaining optimal foot function. A Syndesmosis is a common anatomical structure in the human body that connects and stabilizes two parallel long bones to each other. The most well-known Syndesmoses exist in your legs and forearms.
Syndesmosis Bunion Surgery utilizes the body’s innate healing response to produce a brand new fibrous connecting bridge between the first and second metatarsals. Identical to the healing of a wound, any healthy body is capable of forming this biological structure, without any artificial implant or tissue transplantation. We simply create the environment. Your body does the rest.
Syndesmosis Bunion Surgery is a special surgical technique that leaves each bone and joint fully intact by addressing the true underlying ligament problem. Once it forms naturally over 3 months, the Syndesmosis ligament is the only mechanism needed to critically stabilize previously unstable bones. And because the Syndesmosis is a living structure – it’s strength and durability will last as long as any other healed wound. It’s yours for life.
Syndesmosis Bunion Surgery is an evidence-based bunion correction surgery that has broken with the bone-breaking tradition. It’s minimally traumatic, so patients experience far less pain and fewer complications. It has remarkably overcome not just one but most of the critical challenges facing all other bunion surgeries today.
Recovery after Syndesmosis Bunion Surgery is a natural process of ligament formation, therefore it is consistent, constant and predictable:
Complication is always a possibility for any surgical undertakings, no matter how small the surgery may be or how skilful the surgeon is, and even how cooperative the patient can be. However, more complicated, extensive and traumatic surgeries have, in general, greater risk of developing complications.
It is important to realize there can also be complications after Syndesmosis Bunion Surgery, such as wound infection, surface numbness, a stiff big toe, over-correction, stress fracture, second metatarsal displacement or bunion recurrence, albeit they are uncommon and can be cautiously prevented or satisfactorily resolved.
