The Benefits of Minimal Incision Bunionectomy
If you’ve struggled with bunions, you may have considered surgery to remove your bunions. At Atlanta Foot Care Center, we offer a minimal incision bunionectomy that you could benefit from. Continue reading to learn about minimal incision bunionectomy and the benefits it offers.
Minimal Incision Bunionectomy
A traditional bunionectomy is performed by using 3–5-inch incisions to help remove the excess bone at the base of the big toe. With a minimal incision bunionectomy, the incisions are 3-5 millimeters and can help your feet heal quicker. With this procedure, you may experience less pain and may be able to return to your normal activities in a shorter period of time.
Another added benefit is that your scars will be smaller and harder to notice. Smaller incisions also may help you feel more confident in showing off your feet after your feet heal. You may also experience less stiffness in the feet because there is less disruption around the nerves of the feet. You may also be able to avoid using anesthesia with a minimal incision bunionectomy, which is also a fear that people struggle with.
With all the benefits listed above, you still get the same results you would from traditional bunion surgery. A minimal incision bunionectomy is fairly quick and is done on an outpatient basis, so you’ll be able to go home after surgery and relax immediately.
