Bunion Surgery in Manchester
Bunion treatment in Manchester
Minimally invasive bunion surgery
Our bunion removal surgery procedure uses a revolutionary keyhole technique that does not require the fracture of the foot to be immobilised/rested in order to heal. The surgeon will use surgical dental burrs to correct the deformity and modify the bones of the foot through small 2-3-millimetre incisions that leaves virtually no scarring.
A series of small and precise fractures are made to the foot which are called geometric fractures. The fractures do not require any fixative devices such as screws or pins which force the bone into place. They are instead left to heal naturally according to the patient’s load-bearing needs and not to a pre-set standard that might not be right for the patient and can actually increase the risk of infection post-surgery.
Once the procedure has taken place and the local anaesthetic worn off, the patient will be encouraged to walk on the foot and will be able to leave hospital without the need for crutches.

Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery Results
Do I have a bunion?
The most obvious sign that you have a bunion is a bony lump appearing on the outside edge of the foot. You may find it difficult to find shoes that fit properly or find wearing certain types of shoes painful. Other symptoms of bunions include pain, redness and swelling.
What causes bunions?
It is believed that bunions are often caused by wearing ill-fitting and uncomfortable footwear. This is because it can induce excessive pressure on the toes by forcing the first and fifth toes towards the centre which then compresses the other toes. This can definitely be a big factor as to why you may have developed a bunion.
Other factors that can be a cause of bunions includes genetics, deformities from birth, inherited foot type, foot stress / injury or medical conditions such as arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or osteoarthritis.
How do I treat my bunion?
There are lots of ‘treatments’ available for bunions but unless it is a surgical procedure, it is unlikely to have a successful result.
Bunion pads and splints are one of the most common bunion treatment methods available which can be sourced from most health stores, pharmacies and even supermarkets. These are great items which can be really successful at relieving pain and discomfort caused by bunions, but it is unlikely that they will have much of an impact on reducing the size of bunion.

Keyhole Bunion Surgery Manchester Reviews
“I had Bunion surgery after experiencing pain on a regular basis and finding it very frustrating that I had to reduce the amount of exercise I was able to do. I am delighted to say that 2 months after my procedure, I am back cycling, able to wear my walking boots again and very happy . Thank you for looking after me so well!”
“Excellent service, from start to finish. The procedure lasted 10 min tops. Walked out of the clinic after the surgery. Pain very manageable, quick recovery and healing process. 9 weeks on and back in my regular shoes. Best decision ever to have my bunion done. Couldn’t recommend better specialist than Dr Bianchi. Thank you”
“I read the traditional methods of bunion removal and then Dr Bianchi’s. The difference is as night and day. Friends and family have suffered the traditional method always accompanied with pain and many weeks off work. Usually bolts or wires are used, a general anaesthetic, unable to put pressure on the foot for at least a couple of weeks and afterwards walking with crutches required and then not always a successful outcome. And, who can take that amount of time out anyway? Also, I don’t understand that if a bolt is put through the toe joint, when that person stands, his entire weight is pressing on that bolt. It is therefore restrictive to where the foot wants to be meaning what if a person is 9st and another is 16st all the weight is held in a predetermined place regardless of the individuals weight…it’s all pushing on the bolt surely the heavier the person the more pressure? Dr Bianchi’s method allows the foot to set and heal where the person’s standing weight determines. I am familiar with the minimal invasion, rapid recovery technique as in 2018 I had an hip replacement and could walk the length of the hospital corridor without crutches on the same evening of the operation and was discharged the next morning, so I was delighted when I read about Dr Bianchi’s similar technique. I met with Dr Bianchi and Dr Luca and was very impressed. They are very professional and both warm and welcoming people. I therefore decided it was a “no brainer,” I had needed the OP for some time and decided that this was the only way I would ever have it done. Dr Bianchi removed the bunion, in I think, it was no more than 20 minutes from memory and I can truly tell you it’s FANTASTIC. Everything he says was true. A local anaesthetic was used, I could walk out unaided straight after, no pain at any time both during and all through the recovery period. It really felt as though he hadn’t done anything. I was expecting pain after the local were off but I swear for me there was none! So there is another way! There are few groups more conservative than the medical profession. They are distrustful of someone suggesting that there is a completely different way of doing things. They are simply not prepared to acknowledge that someone else does it better.”
“I was apprehensive about having my bunion operation done under local anaesthetic. I needn’t have worried. I had a fairly severe bunion, the operation was very straightforward and I literally walked out of the clinic. Healing time was minimal and I was back in the gym in my “special boot”, especially designed and provided by the clinic, within a week of the operation. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Mr Bianchi for this procedure and in fact have done so.”
