Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery
A bunion is a common foot condition that can cause pain and discomfort, affecting the quality of life of the person affected. At Carrollton Foot Center, Dr. Khavari specializes in treating bunions using minimally invasive surgical techniques that are at the forefront of bunion surgery.
Bunions form when the bones in the big toe joint become misaligned. This can be due to a variety of reasons, including wearing shoes that are too tight or have high heels, having an inherited foot type that makes one more prone to bunions, or having a condition such as arthritis that affects the bones in the feet.
Once a bunion forms, it can be difficult to treat. However, there are several treatment options available, including wearing properly fitting shoes that don’t put pressure on the big toe, using pads or other devices to relieve pain and pressure on the big toe, taking over-the-counter pain relievers to reduce pain and inflammation, and getting cortisone injections.
If conservative treatments fail, surgery may be necessary. Common surgical treatments for bunions include realigning the bones in the big toe joint, removing the bunion, or fusing the bones in the big toe joint.
Dr. Khavari is skilled in performing minimally invasive bunion surgery, which allows for the correction of even severe deformities through small incisions. This type of surgery results in less swelling, less pain, and better motion in the foot after the procedure. Patients can usually get back on their feet immediately after surgery, leading to a faster recovery and return to normal activities.
If you have a bunion, it’s important to see a doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Dr. Khavari and the team at Carrollton Foot Center are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for patients with bunions, using the latest techniques and technology to ensure the best possible outcomes.
