                                           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.
