Arthrex Bunionectomy: The Minimally Invasive Surgical Solution to Bunions

A bunion is more than just a bump on your foot—it’s a complex deformity where the bones of your big toe gradually rotate out of alignment, creating a bump on the inside of your foot. This hard bump can grow in severity as the deformity progresses.

If your bunion has become painful, red, and swollen, it may be time to consider surgical options. Traditional bunion removal procedures have been associated with a long and painful recovery. The Arthrex Minimally Invasive Bunionectomy achieves the same or better correction as traditional surgeries,1,2 but through small “pinhole” incisions. This results in less damage to the soft tissues and vascular structures in your foot, meaning less postoperative pain3 and swelling4 after your bunion surgery. Ultimately, you can walk sooner and recover faster,3,5 all with less visible scarring.6
