Without the Fusion
How The Mifoot
The Mifoot bunion correction procedure avoids the great toe joint, resulting in patients typically having less stiffness than as seen with open techniques.
In addition, due to smaller incisions and less soft tissue damage, patients experience less pain and a faster recovery. Your surgeons will utilize either one Centrolock implant or a combination of PECA implants to correct and stabilize the bunion correction.
NO OPEN SURGERY
Less soft tissue disruption allows for faster bone and soft tissue healing.
This decreases healing time and stiffness.
Due to tiny incisions.
Both PECA and Centrolock Implants are designed to stay within the bone without causing pain or being palpable under the skin.
