Minimally Invasive Bunion & Tailor’s Bunion Surgery Gold Coast & Brisbane
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 and Gold Coast Foot Surgery will advise if you are a good candidate for Minimally Invasive (Keyhole) Bunion Surgery during your consultation. (Book an appointment with Dr Kim)
* Not all bunions or Tailor’s bunions are candidates for Minimally Invasive Surgery due to the complex and severity of the condition. If you are not a candidate, Dr Kim still offers traditional open surgery to warrant the best outcome.
