Minimally Invasive Bunions Surgery

The Problem

For the majority of people who suffer from bunions, it is the appearance that bothers them and it can make choosing the right shoes or sandals for special occasions a challenge. For others the pain and swelling from bunions can really affect their everyday life, but the downtime associated with bunions removal surgery is often not an option.r everyday life, but the downtime associated with bunions removal surgery is often not an option.

“I was able to walk immediately after the operation!” *
-Karen

“Best decision I have ever made! After decades of pain and being embarrassed by the shape of my feet, I now have beautiful, straight, pain free feet. The Procedure is exactly as described, had my operation and was walking out of the hospital an hour and half later. Dr Bianchi, Luka and their whole team are amazing and I would definitely recommend them to anyone considering bunion surgery.”

Our bunion keyhole surgery has changed this: there is now no bunion pads, no 6 months downtime, no crutches, no bunion scar, no metal screws or fixative devices.

Bunions Removal Treatment

Our minimally invasive bunion procedure was developed by Mr Andreas Bianchi and his team. It uses a revolutionary technique that does not require the fracture of the foot to be immobilised/rested in order to heal. The procedure uses surgical dental burrs to correct the deformity and modify the bones of the foot. These burrs are inserted through very small 2-3 millimetre incisions and are guided using a special radiological device allowing the surgeon to see the bones and burrs without the need for larger incisions. Dr Bianchi will then create a series of small and precise fractures that are referred to as geometric fractures. These fractures do not require fixative devices such as screws or pins which force the bone into place. They are instead left to heal naturally. Once the bones are realigned, the fractures are left free to allow the foot to heal according to the patient’s load-bearing needs and not to a pre-set standard that may not be right for the patient. The bones are then left to heal in a more natural position which results in better comfort and functionality post procedure. You will then be encouraged to bear weight on your foot shortly after your procedure to encourage the correct physiological readjustments and you will be able to walk out of the hospital without the need for crutches after your procedure.
Before you leave, your foot will be bandaged and taped using a personalised bandaging technique which allows the physiological healing process to spontaneously restructure the foot and avoid any additional stress caused by arbitrary immobilisation. You will be required to wear this for up to 20 days before returning to the clinic to have it reduced and many patients at this stage will be able to leave wearing loose-fitting trainers too.

Bunion Surgery Recovery

The change to the shape of your foot following Cosmetic Bunion surgery will be instant however you may not be able to see this due to the bandages that are applied to your foot post-procedure. You will be able to see your results when you return for your post-op check 2 weeks after your Cosmetic foot surgery. It may take a few months for your foot to take its final shape but you will be able to walk on it immediately.

Your first check-up will take place between 15-20 days post procedure. At this time your medication will be changed and your bandaging will be reduced. In most cases, you will also be able to remove your post-surgical shoe and wear comfortable shoes such as trainers. Your surgeon will then make any further check-ups that you need and a follow-up x-ray will be arranged after 45 days to see the results which will take place at our London Harley Street clinic.

What happens at a bunion follow up appointment?

Downtime

You will be able to walk without the use of crutches almost immediately post-surgery. It is advised that you take care and do rest it when possible but many patients are able to return to work or their everyday tasks after 1-2 days. Bunion surgery removal time off work is minimal compared to traditional bunion surgery procedures.

FAQs

What is a bunion?

A bunion, medically known as a Hallux Valgus is a deformity of the foot often around the big toe. A bunion is often first noticed when a bony lump appears on the outside edge of the foot which forms over time when your big toe pushes against your next toe, forcing the joint of your big toe to grow and stick out the side of your foot.

In more severe cases the big toe can point towards the other toes on your foot instead of sitting upright. Some people experience pain, redness and swelling but this will vary between individuals.

Bunion symptoms and bunionectomy treatments can be discussed at a consultation at our London Harley Street Bunion clinic, click here to book.

Can you prevent bunions?

As bunions are often genetic it can be hard to prevent bunions if you are predisposed to developing them. You can take care to ensure that your shoes fit your feet correctly and have a broad toe area. It is also recommended that you avoid wearing heels over 4 cm high. At The Private Clinic we recommend that you check your feet regularly to spot deformities before any pain arises.

What causes bunions?

The main cause of a bunion is often down to congenital factors which mean you may be genetically prone to bunions, they run in the family or the shape and anatomy of your foot. In some cases bunions are acquired which means the bunion has developed from wearing ill-fitting and uncomfortable footwear.

Why are women are more likely to develop bunions during pregnancy?

Genetics play a major part in the formation of bunions; this means that if your mother or grandmother suffer from them then it is likely that you will also develop them. During pregnancy the weight of the unborn child means that women tend to put more weight on the front of the foot to give them greater stability. This can cause the front of the foot to collapse, increasing the risk of painful bunions forming.

Unfortunately, once bunions form, they will not go away without undergoing surgery. They can cause chronic pain, swelling and redness over the big toe joint, particularly after wearing tight-fitting shoes or shoes that don’t fit you properly. The symptoms of bunions can be eased by wearing wide shoes with a low heel and soft sole, bunion pads to reduce rubbing and taking regular painkillers to ease the discomfort.

At The Private Clinic we can help to treat the bunion rather than just ease the discomfort. Our minimally invasive bunion procedure uses keyhole surgery with no pins or screws meaning you will be able to walk straight after the procedure and get back to your usual activities much sooner than traditional bunionectomy surgery.  Book a consultation today to find out more.

How do shoes cause bunions?

Ill-fitting shoes can cause bunions to develop at a more rapid rate as they are likely to be causing excessive pressure and compression on the toes causing the deformity. The compression increases when wearing shoes with high heels as your body weight will sit at the front of the foot. Rigid shoes can also increase the risk of bunions as they will affect the natural flexion of the toes as you walk which weakens your foot muscles and encourages the development of bunions.

Your shoes should conform to the shape of your feet without squeezing or pressing any part of your foot.

How do I know if I have a bunion?

Most people know if they have a bunion by the appearance and often some pain. The best option is to come in and see us to discuss the bunionectomy procedure and follow up with an X-ray which we will arrange to be performed in-house.

Can men get bunions?

It is possible for men to develop bunions too with one in ten of Britain’s 15 million bunion sufferers being men. The majority of men’s bunions are hereditary but ill-fitting footwear, collapsed arches and flat feet can also be part of the problem too.

Here at The Private Clinic we are able to treat both men and women for bunions and to find out more information about our unique treatment click here for a consultation.

Does wearing High Heels cause bunions?

The wearing of high heels and ill-fitting shoes are often blamed for the occurrence of bunions but actually it is more down to genetics and the way that you walk. If you have family members who suffer from bunions then the wearing of tight shoes and stilettos on a regular basis are not going to help but they will not be the direct cause. We can certainly help if you have a bunion, book a consultation today.

How can I treat a bunion?

There are a range of non-surgical treatments for bunions out there including bunion pads which can help making shoes more comfortable. Bunion corrective braces can be worn to assist in correcting the deformity over time but for a more instant and long lasting result, bunionectomy surgery is often advised.

At The Private Clinic we have a revolutionary new bunion corrective procedure which has minimal downtime and is performed under a local anaesthetic. To find out more and book a consultation click here.

What will happen if I don’t treat my bunion?

If you don’t seek treatment for bunions then it can lead to further problems including increased pain, difficulty walking,  difficulty to wear shoes and hammertoe.

How long minimally invasive bunion surgery take?

Bunion removal surgery at The Private Clinic takes less than 30 minutes to complete.

Why is the bunion surgery technique so innovative, and what does the bunion procedure involve?

Our minimally invasive bunion procedure was developed by Mr Andreas Bianchi and his team. The revolutionary technique removes the concept that every fracture needs to be rested in order to heal. Once the bones have been realigned, any fractures are left free so the foot is then encouraged to heal in sync with the patient’s load-bearing needs and not to a ‘pre-established’ standard that may not be right for the patient.

Dr Andreas Bianchi creates a series of small and precise fractures that are known as geometric fractures which do not force the bone into place using any fixative devices and allows the foot to heal naturally. The bones and joins in the foot are not being forced to repair and so they instead heal in a more natural position which results in better comfort and functionality post-op.

The procedure uses small surgical dental burrs to correct the deformity and modify the bones of the foot. These are inserted through very small 2-3mm incisions and are guided using a special radiological device allowing the surgeon to see the bones and burs without needing to make larger incisions. The important innovation of the technique is that fixative devices such as screws or wires are not used which allows the fractures to heal according to requirements of the patient’s foot.

Post procedure, the foot will be bandaged and taped using a personalised bandaging which allows the physiological healing process to spontaneously restructure the foot and avoid any additional stress caused by arbitrary immobilisation. You will be required to wear this for up to 20 days before returning to clinic to have it reduced.

Why do we not use screws in bunion correction surgery?

Introducing an external element such as metal screws into the body will always be very invasive. For example, the metal fixative devices used in bunion surgery can create problems such as the joints in the foot not being able to find a natural posture, which can result in a huge amount of discomfort post-surgery. Because of this, in some cases a second operation may be required to remove them. In addition, the healing from this kind of surgery can take a prolonged period of time and in some instances crutches are needed before the foot is able to bear weight.

In order to address these issues with standard bunion surgery, Dr Bianchi has developed a more natural and biological method without using fixative devices like screws, plates or wires. Through his research over 20 years, Dr Bianchi has proven that self-stabilizing geometric fractures can be made on short-bones (without the need for immobilisation) with long term results. This not only means that healing and recovery is much quicker and easier, but that greater joint mobility is achieved after the surgery, compared to standard techniques.

Each procedure is customised to the patient, and this is not a ‘one-size fits all’ approach. The bone is fractured, re-aligned and bandaged in such a way that creates the perfect result for the patient’s anatomy and better comfort and joint articulation. The absence of screws means that the joint is not fixed in one place, it can move freely.

In addition, recovery from the method does not require the immobilisation of the foot so the patient can go back to walking immediately post-surgery without the need for crutches. Thanks to the special bandaging technique and supportive shoe, the patient is able to walk unaided straight after the operation.

What is a geometric fracture?

Our minimally invasive bunion procedure involves making a geometric fracture.

A geometric fracture refers to way the bones are carefully fractured with precision and then realigned into a straight position creating a perfect result for the patient’s anatomy and better comfort and joint articulation. The absence of screws means that the joint is not fixed in one place, it can move freely.

The fractured bone is then bandaged without the need for screws to keep it in place. A special bandaging technique is then used with a supportive shoe,  So the patient can go back to walking immediately post-surgery without the need for crutches promoting the natural healing of the foot.

Make a consultation to find out more about our revolutionary new minimally invasive keyhole bunion removal procedure.

Why is there no scar?

In our minimally invasive keyhole bunion surgery we use small, surgical, dental burrs to correct and modify the bones of the forefoot. These dental burrs are inserted through small incisions in the skin that are approximately 2-3mm. These incisions do not require stitches and will heal naturally over time just like a small cut in the skin would.

Book a consultation to find out more about our revolutionary new minimally invasive keyhole bunion removal procedure.

What are dental burrs?

Dental burs are used for cutting hard tissues including tooth or bone. They are made of steel, stainless steel, tungsten carbide and diamond grit.

Dr Andreas Bianchi uses dental burrs in this revolutionary new keyhole bunion surgery to keep it minimally invasive and the scars to a minimum.

Book a consultation today to find out more.

What happens after bunion surgery?

Once your bunion correction procedure is complete you will be encouraged to place your foot on the floor and start walking gradually. Your surgeon will use a personalised bandaging technique to bandage the foot and you will be given a specialised orthopaedic shoe to wear.

Patients will then be given specific aftercare instructions by the surgeon for you to follow post-procedure and a post-op appointment for 15-20 days time will be confirmed.

Why does wrapping the foot help the foot recover after the bunion keyhole surgery?

Minimally invasive bunion surgery at The Private Clinic involves using personalised bandaging. This process following the operation is just as important as the surgery itself, and allows the physiological healing process to spontaneously restructure the foot and avoid any additional stress caused by arbitrary immobilisation. You will keep your foot bandaged for 15-20 days before returning for a post-op appointment with Dr Bianchi who will then reduce it and you will be able to leave wearing a trainer instead of the surgical shoe.

Does bunion correction surgery hurt?

Bunion Correction surgery at The Private Clinic is performed under local anaesthesia which will last for some time post procedure. Most patients do not feel any significant amounts of pain post-procedure and any pain felt can be easily managed by painkillers such as paracetamol.

Can I have both feet treated at the same time?

At The Private Clinic we recommend that you have your bunion correction procedures carried out on one foot at a time to aid for a better recovery. Double bunion surgery is not advised by Dr Bianchi.

You will be able to discuss your bunionectomy treatment plan at your consultation.

What shoes do I wear after bunion correction surgery?

The Private Clinic will provide you with a specialised orthopaedic shoe that will need to be worn for a few days during your recovery process. Once you have been given the go-ahead from your surgeon you will be able to wear your usual shoes although we do advise that you take care to wear comfortable and well-fitted shoes to avoid the development of bunions again.

When can i wear high heels after bunion correction surgery?

Immediately after bunion correction surgery you will be required to wear a specalised orthopaedic shoe for the first couple of days. Your surgeon will let you know post-procedure when you can stop wearing this and go back to wearing your usual shoes.

We do advise that you initially stick to comfortable and well-fitted shoes to allow your foot to heal properly. High heels can be worn 2 months after surgery.

Full aftercare will be provided to you by your surgeon after your procedure.

Will I need physiotherapy after bunion correction surgery?

We encourage patients to get back on their feet quickly after bunion correction surgery to aid their recovery. You will not require physiotherapy or any other type of walking aid during your minimally invasive bunionectomy recovery at The Private Clinic.

When can I drive again after bunion correction surgery?

Although you will be able to walk after bunion correction surgery we do advise that you take care when returning to drive a car. We recommend that patients wait until they are able to wear their usual shoes again instead of the orthopaedic shoe given to you post-procedure. In some cases your insurance may be invalid if you drive too soon after a surgical procedure.

Will my bunion return after surgery?

Based on the geometric correction used to correct the bunion it is far less likely for it to reappear compared to the traditional surgery method. It is not impossible however and your surgeon will go over all the risks and complications associated with bunionectomy surgery at your consultation. Click here to book a bunion correction consultation to discuss your bunion issues.

Can I have bunion removal surgery on the NHS?

Bunion removal surgery is available through the NHS however the type of surgery they offer is a lot more invasive and requires a considerable amount of downtime from 2-6 weeks. Going through the NHS for bunionectomy surgery can also take a considerable amount of time with many patients waiting months to even be referred from their GP to a surgeon and then even longer to be deemed suitable and in-need of the surgical procedure. Many NHS hospitals will only operate for extreme bunion cases.

Our minimally invasive bunion correction procedure that we are able to offer here at The Private Clinic may be more favourable especially for those who have work or children commitments and are seeking a reliable procedure without the lengthy downtime. To find out more click here for a consultation.

Can you walk after bunion surgery?

Our revolutionary new bunion correction surgery allows patients to be able to walk almost immediately after their procedure. Once the surgery has taken place we encourage patients to place their foot flat on the ground and regularly walk around to encourage the bones to heal to the correct physiological readjustments. You will be able to leave the hospital without the need for any walking aids or help after your bunion correction procedure at The Private Clinic.

Although you will be able to walk post-procedure you must take care not to do too much too soon and if you find yourself in pain or experience swelling of the foot then take some time to rest with the foot elevated.

Click here to book a consultation and find out more.

Are you awake for bunion surgery?

Bunion correction surgery at The Private Clinic is performed under local anaesthetic so you will be awake for the procedure. In some cases a sedative may be given for patients who are feeling particularly anxious about the surgery which will help you to relax.

We will explain everything in detail, and make you feel at ease and relaxed on the day of your bunionectomy treatment you will be in safe, expert and medically qualified hands at all times.

What is a hammer toe?

Hammertoe is a deformity that causes your toe to bend or curl downwards permanently instead of pointing forwards. It is usually caused by weakened muscles that make the tendons in your foot shorter. Hammertoes usually start out as mild deformities and get progressively worse over time with other issues such as corns and calluses appearing with the build-up of hard skin over the raised joints. Hammertoe can affect any toe on your foot and it usually caused by;

  • Badly fitting shoes
  • Arthritis
  • Toe injury
  • Pressure from a bunion
  • High foot arch
  • Nerve damage
  • Genetics
  • Having calluses or corns

Can you have surgery to correct hammertoe?

Mild cases of hammertoe are often helped with rubber, leather or silicone splints. Shoes that have a more generous fit or softer uppers can help ease some of the pain caused by corns or calluses but the only way to fully correct hammertoe is with surgery.

What are Bunions?

A bunion is a bone deformity of the joint connecting the big toe to the foot. It forms over time when your big toe pushes against your next toe, forcing the joint of your big toe to grow and stick out.  It has been reported (Arthritis and Care Research – Prevalence and associations of hallux valgus in a primary care population) that over 15 million people in the UK have bunions with the majority of them being women over 45.

What are Bunion symptoms?

  • A change to the shape of your foot that may result in shoes not fitting correctly
  • Pain and swelling over your big toe joint particularly after wearing shoes
  • A swollen and bony bump on the outside edge of your foot
  • Hard, callused and red skin caused by your big toe and second toe overlapping
  • Sore skin over the top of the bunions

Bunion symptoms will vary between people and they can get worse over time if the bunions is left untreated.

What is the cost of minimally invasive keyhole bunion surgery?

An initial consultation with our expert  Orthopaedic surgeon Dr Bianchi is £200, which includes a free X-ray of your feet which is carried out in-house. Dr Bianchi will explain in detail how the keyhole bunion operation is achieved and why it is different from any other bunion operation.

The price for the no insertion of screws, wire or metal pins bunion operation is £4,600 for one  and £8,100 for two bunions. The second bunion is priced at £3,500.

The price for the operation includes 2 free post-operative check-ups and specialised orthopaedic footwear that each patient must wear whilst recovery takes place. These shoes are worn for a period of three weeks. Patients can walk immediately after the operation with no crutches and are able to walk from day one.

See our before and after photos of this revolutionary keyhole bunion removal surgery. See the bunion operation video of our patient Karen who underwent keyhole bunion surgery.

Can I have bunion surgery on both feet?

Many patients ask us whether both feet can be treated at the same time when they undergo bunion surgery treatment. At The Private Clinic, we recommend that you have your bunion correction procedures carried out on one foot at a time to aid for a better recovery.

Double bunion surgery at the same time is not advised by Dr Bianchi. Instead, we usually recommend treating the most painful foot first in cases where bunions exist on both feet. By conducting the procedure in this way, patient recovery is faster because the patient can use the other foot normally.

If both feet are operated on simultaneously, the recovery can take twice as long, if not more. Vascula issues like DVT(deep vein thrombosis) are also more likely to occur if both feet are operated on at the same time.

The best option is to come in for a consultation and discuss your bunionectomy treatment plan with Dr Bianchi.
