What is Minimally Invasive (keyhole) bunion surgery?
Minimally invasive bunion surgery involves small keyhole incisions (<3mm), which results in less post-operative pain, faster recovery, and less stiffness at the big toe compared to traditional open bunion surgery involving large incision (~5 cm) and more dissections resulting in more soft tissue damages.
Minimally invasive bunion surgery may be an alternative to traditional open surgery for some patients and this will depend on the type and severity of the bunion. Dr Kim in Brisbane/Gold Coast Foot Surgery will advise if you are a good candidate for Minimally Invasive (Keyhole) Bunion Surgery during your consultation.
