The Next Step
Mifoot Bunion Surgery procedures take traditional concepts of bunion treatment and transforms them into a minimally invasive approach.
Instead of using large incisions to make bone cuts, surgeons use specific instrumentation to achieve the same correction through tiny incisions.
Bunions are predominately caused by tight and narrow shoes, which commonly impact women. They also have a genetic predisposition.
Traditional Open Bunion Surgery
Mifoot Bunion Surgery
On average, recovery after the Arthrex Minimally Invasive Bunionectomy is up to 8 weeks faster than after traditional open procedures.2,8
90% of patients who underwent MIS bunion surgery were satisfied with their cosmetic results versus 65% of open surgery patients.5
On average, the incision size with the Arthrex Minimally Invasive Bunionectomy procedure is 76% smaller than for traditional bunion surgery.2,9
Bunions, medically referred to as hallux valgus, is a painful bony bump on the side or base of the big toe. It may gradually get bigger, resulting in discomfort.
The most noticeable symptom of a bunion is the visible deformity on the outside of the foot.
