Bunion Surgery Recovery Is Not What It Used To Be…
- No Casts
- No Crutches
All Thanks to Dr. Blitz’ Revolutionary Patented Bunion Surgery Implant
And, Improved Cosmetic Outcome With Bunionplasty®
Bunion surgery has changed dramatically in the past few years, however not all bunion surgeons provide the most modern techniques with the best outcomes. Particularly, the post bunion surgery recovery process has drastically changed, especially for larger bunions, making casts and crutches nearly obsolete. Additionally, some advanced techniques (Bunionplasty®) have allowed a better cosmetic outcome by avoiding the traditional scar to the top of the foot.
Immediate Walking After Bunion Surgery: Yes, It’s True.
Nowadays, patients can experience little down time after bunion surgery. The best bunion surgery techniques allow walking after bunion surgery in a small surgical shoe, regardless of bunion size. Dr. Blitz’ unique patented bunion surgery implant has revolutionized bunion surgery because it allows his patients the ability to walk immediately after bunion surgery for BOTH small bunions and large bunions.
Improved Cosmetic Appearance Of Scar
Bunionplasty® (plastic surgery for bunions) has allowed the incision to be hidden mainly on the inside of the foot, rather than completely on the top of the foot.
“No longer is the scar needed to be placed directly on the top of the foot, and plastic surgery techniques are performed to decrease scarring.”

Creator of the Bunionplasty®
Bunion Surgery, Explained
Bunion treatment with bunion surgery generally involves bone procedures to realign the deviated bones of the big toe joint. The size of the bunion generally dictates the method of correction, which has historically dictated the recovery. Bunionplasty® (cosmetic bunionectomy) refers to the method with which the skin and soft tissue is handled to limit scarring for a more pleasing visually aesthetic bunion surgery result.
The best bunion surgery method to correct the boney malalignment is based on the size of the bunion, and it’s important to determine if the bunion is small or large. Small bunion treatment with bunion surgery is generally corrected with bone cutting procedures. Large bunion treatment with bunion surgery is generally treated with bone mending (fusion) procedures.
