Here at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we are excited to offer our patients a minimally invasive bunion removal procedure in partnership with our sister clinic The Private Clinic and Orthopaedic Consultant Surgeon Dr Andrea Bianchi, MD GMC Number: 7093105.
Dr Andrea Bianchi and his team of experts worked together to develop a new surgical technique to treat foot conditions such as bunion and hammertoe which is inspired by keyhole surgery.
The keyhole bunionectomy procedure is minimally invasive and can take as little as 15 minutes under local anaesthetic to perform. The surgery does not use any fixative devices such as wires, screws or plates which allows the patients foot to heal naturally and results in better comfort and functionality following the procedure. Almost immediately after treatment, the patient will be able to walk without the need for crutches and return to their lifestyle with minimal downtime.
The results following minimally invasive bunion surgery are instant. You will be required to wear bandages and specially designed medical black sandal for 1-2 weeks following surgery. You will be able to walk and stand following the operation. Patients will need to return to clinic where they will be able to swap the sandal for an appropriate trainer or similar show which will need to be worn for the next 3 weeks. An x-ray image will be taken of the foot after 1-2 months which will then be shown at your follow up appointment where you will be able to compare against the x-ray image taken prior to surgery.
Minimally invasive bunion removal surgery is exclusive to The Private Clinic in the UK with no other orthopaedic procedures being performed in this way. The surgery is minimally invasive being carried out under local anaesthetic via keyhole techniques. It is a natural operation that does not use wires or screws. Orthopaedic Consultant Surgeon Dr Andrea Bianchi is an expert in bunion removal surgery and has been carrying out bunion procedures for 15 years and performed over 1000 bunion operations a year. There is a 98% success following bunion removal surgery and patients are able to walk immediately after surgery, with no crutches or extensive downtime required. The downtime required after surgery is minimal and the 2-3mm skin incisions made during the procedure leave no scar.
