Bunions are common, painful and unsightly.  However, many people will ignore the pain and deal with the inconvenience out of fear that surgical correction can be a bad experience.  We have a very high success rate with quick recovery.  Don't believe us, just read our reviews!  

With the use of the latest surgical techniques, removable screws and minimally invasive techniques you literally walk out of the surgery center after your procedure.  You will spend minimal time in a surgical shoe or walking boot and back to shoe gear within a month.  
 
Our patients experience virtually little to no post-operative pain because of advanced recovery techniques.  If you want to learn more, please schedule a consultation in one of our modern offices today.  We are here to answer your questions and look forward to guiding you through your procedure and recovery.  

                                

There are many misconceptions about bunion surgery and we hear about them everyday.  Patients will suffer with painful bunions for years because of misinformation they read on the internet or a bad experience they hear about from their friend.  When performed properly, with appropriate post operative care bunion surgery is both very successful and well tolerated.  

Here at advanced podiatry we take every possible precaution and use the latest technology and technique to limit complications and make your experience pain free.  One such advancement is removable hardware. Bunion surgery often requires the use of screw fixation to repair the deformity.  We use a specially designed screw that is simply, easily and painlessly removed 6 weeks after surgery.  This leaves you with no metal in your foot and no bunion either!
 
By using small incisions, minimally invasive techniques and the best instrumentation we are able to get you walking the day of surgery and most times limit the use of post operative pain medication to just the first few days.  We also use something called cold compression therapy in our practice.  This simple but effective cooling modality prevents post operative swelling and keeps our patients comfortable and pain free.  
 
These are just a few of the common things we hear about from patients, but if you have other questions please give us a call today!  We are here to help.

                                           Avoid Metallosis from Bunion Surgery

We do all we can to avoid toxins from entering our bodies. We detox, wear natural makeup and we avoid products with harmful additives. So why are we compliant about possible heavy metal poisoning after elective foot surgery? The hardware placed in your bodies after some foot surgeries can lead to metallosis, which is a medical condition involving deposition and build-up of metal debris in the soft tissues of the body. Abrasion of the metal components of screws placed in your foot during a bunion repair may cause immune reactions within your body. Some of the symptoms of metallosis generally include pain around the site of the implant, rash or pseudotumors.

The SafetyFix System is the first FDA cleared device designed to allow for bunion fixation to occur and all metal hardware to be easily removed. The unique shape of the screw allows the realignment of the bunion correction while keeping the head of the screw just below the surface of the skin. When the bones heal, a small incision is made to remove the screw without having to cut through deep layers of previously healed soft tissue and bone. By removing the screw, the risk of short and long term complications and health problems from metal toxicity is greatly reduced because there is no metal or unnatural foreign material left inside your body.

Feel free to contact your local podiatry office to discuss having your bunion repairs with removable screws.

The Princess and her bunions

Meghan Markle is considered one of the world's most beautiful woman.  Always meticulously dressed in designer clothing with stunning high heels.  However, could it be? Is it true? She has bunions?
 
Based on some recent photographs showing red scars to the inside of her left foot, it appears so!  Meghan seems to have had surgery to correct this common foot issue.  
 
A recent article describes how she suffered through painful surgery.  NOT TRUE!  We perform this procedure many times a week here at Advanced Podiatry and most patients have little-to-no pain.  
 
If you want to walking the shoes of a princess come see us today!

This is not your mother's bunion surgery. 
 
The lazy days of summer are upon us.  Time for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.  Summer is a very busy time of year for us here at Advanced Podiatry.  As specialists in new bunion correction techniques we often see and influx of teachers and other professionals who have summers off.  
 
This is a great time of year to have you bunion fixed so you can have the time to kick your feet up and rest up at home.  New advances in bunion surgery allow you to walk immediately after surgery and get back into a shoe at about 4 weeks.  
 
Most patients have no pain and are able to continue to enjoy their time off without interruption.
