What are bunions?
Bunions are a bone deformity of the joint of the toe, appearing on the outer area of the foot. This condition is developed over time and induces the big toe to curve towards the rest of the toes further causing the joint to stick out.
Can I prevent bunions?
Bunions are a hard condition to prevent due to their hereditary and congenital factor. If anyone in your family suffers from bunions there is a high probability that you can get bunions too.
However, there are some tips to minimise their appearance. Wear shoes that feet comfortably as ill-fitting shoes can contribute to the development of the bunion and speed up the process and try to avoid wearing heels higher than 4cm.
How can I treat my bunions?
There are many non-surgical treatments available to minimise the discomfort of bunions such as corrective braces or bunion pad, however, these are temporary remedies. If you are looking for a long term solution to this issue and feel confident showing your feet, bunion surgery is the best option.
As seen on Harper’s Bazaar latest trends, at The Private Clinic we exclusively offer the mini-invasive bunion surgery; no other clinic has this procedure available in the UK. Is a revolutionary keyhole surgery technique to remove bunions without inserting any fixative devices, meaning no screws, plates or wires and is performed under local anaesthetic.
This surgery is performed by Orthopaedic surgeon Dr Andrea Bianchi who has more than 15 years of experience and performs over 1.000 minimally-invasive bunion surgeries per year. Consultations with Dr Bianchi are available at our London and Manchester bunions clinics.
The procedure starts by performing tiny incisions of 2-3 millimetres so the surgical dental burrs can go through to help correct the deformity and re-arrange the bones on the foot. Since no fixative devices are used, Dr Bianchi proceeds to create precise geometric fractures on the bone re-align it; this way the foot can heal naturally at its own pace. Patients can walk out of the clinic after the procedure without the assistance of any crutches.
The downtime for this procedure is minimal, patients can return to work within 1-2 days and there is no visible scar left.
