Minimally Invasive bunion surgery (also known as Minimally Invasive Hallux Valgus Correction Surgery) has perceived advantages over the traditional open surgery.  The incisions are much smaller. Much less soft tissue stripping is required to gain access to the bone in order to make the necessary bony corrections. As a result, his may lead to:

  • Reduced surgical time
  • Less damage to tissues
  • Less internal scarring
  • Minimal external scarring (no stitches needed)
  • Less joint stiffness
  • Faster recovery time
  • Faster return to work and normal activities

Dr. Cramer was personally trained by Dr. Stephen L. Barrett who explains there is a steep learning curve when it comes to this procedure in the article from Podiatry Today, Study Assesses Minimally Invasive Osteotomy for Hallux Valgus.

Most people are eligible to have minimally invasive surgery, however it is not for everyone. Some deformities are too large to be corrected using minimally invasive techniques. A consultation with Dr. Cramer will allow you to discuss this in detail and decide which method of foot correction is appropriate for you.
