The before and after results of our exclusive bunion removal procedure are a great way to see how life changing this procedure can be. Bunion removal is not just about the aesthetics however, the true results of bunion removal surgery is the relief in discomfort, pain, swelling and aching of the foot. Shopping for shoes can now be an enjoyable activity and taking part in exercise can be done with ease without irritation.
Karen was one of our first bunion removal patients at our London clinic. She had previously declined surgery on the NHS due to the lengthy recovery period and downtime. After hearing about our new exclusive minimally invasive bunion removal procedure she was keen to get booked in and find out more.
As you can see, Karen has had a great result and went on to have her other foot treated shortly after. Her recovery had minimal impact on both her work and home life, and she found herself taking up new sporting activities such as running which she previously thought she would never be able to do due to the discomfort in her feet.
Performed exclusively in the UK at The Private Clinic, consultant orthopaedic surgeon Dr Andrea Bianchi has been performing bunion operations for 15 years and developed the minimally invasive bunion removal procedure in 1996 undertaking approximately 1,200 treatments a year.

Bunion Patient testimonials and review
“My reason initially for choosing The Private Clinic of Harley Street mainly was because Dr Bianchi, my surgeon, was offering keyhole bunion surgery which was pioneering and unknown of in the UK. Also there are no screws or pins fitted just bandages. My experience from my first meeting with Dr Bianchi and his team was excellent from start to finish. The day I had surgery everyone put me at ease and as was discussed because of the nature of the surgery I was able to walk out of the hospital the same day without the aid of crutches and was virtually pain free. The aftercare the Clinic provided was excellent so I went ahead with the second foot and now several months later I have no bunions and very pleased with the result and can wear shoes without the discomfort I was having for many years. I would definitely recommend Dr Bianchi’s new method of surgery and the Private Clinic of Harley Street for their professionalism.”
“Dr Bianchi & Luca are not only very professional but very kind & have a wonderful sense of humour. They made me feel very relaxed & comfortable. I had my surgery in January 2020 which took all of 5 minutes, although the whole time at the clinic was roughly about 4 hours. This included all the pre surgery assessments & recovery time. I was walking straight away with a special bandage & a special fitting shoe. My foot was numb from the nerve block but that soon wore off. The pain is very minimal, I used paracetamol for a few days and rested my foot every day but also continued my housewife duties & school runs as normal. By February I had my bandage off & was wearing a normal flat shoe but needed to be of a wide fit as my foot was a little swollen. Now in March I am wearing kitten heel shoes. I am now scheduling my surgery for my other foot. No regrets in doing this surgery.”
“I’m very pleased to have chosen the Private Clinic as my procedure was almost painless and the recovery was just a matter of a few weeks. Everyone at the Clinic was so pleasant, friendly, and helpful. I wouldn’t hesitate to use again or recommend the Private Clinic.”
